F/F Small Field Trophy


SFT Update – October 2023

Although there was good sport at the Buckminster “Ace” contests, the overall scores have changed only slightly. Nine of the ten chosen contests have now taken place: it is now clear that no scores will have to be dropped in the final accounting, as no competitor has entered more that five contests so far. (“Best six to count.”). There now remains only the Rubber Ratio (beside P20 again and E20) at Buckminster on 15th October.

At present as you will see, two flyers are equal in scores and both have scored in five contests, so there is all to play for. A third competitor, if the next event goes well, could also be in the running. Others are in a position to improve their ratings dramatically. So far, the totals are:

Tony Rushby       16
Bert Whitehead   16
Ken Bates           11
Julio Isidro           3
Andy Green          3

With two points are: Dave Rumball, Luke Goymour, Colin Foster, Gary Law, Brian Lever, Peter Adams, with one point each for Chris Grant, Martin Peters,  Gordon Hannah,  Martin Pyke, Roger Silcock, Russell Baker, Brayden Mileson and Shaun Mileson.

The points are awarded for the number of fellow competitors beaten in each contest plus one for every other finisher, with the best six scores out of the total of ten to count. The qualifying event still to take place is:

Rubber Ratio at Buckminster 15th October: also P20 and E20.

Rules can be found on the SAM website. Free entry to contests.


 Regrettably I have to remind everyone that these will be the last FF contests run under my aegis: a new organiser is urgently needed for next year if the SFT Calendar, or at least the best parts of it, are to continue!
