Grid Challenge Completed again!

Since the Northern Challenge Trophy started, people have stopped telling me when they've done Grid Challenges. So I missed this until now: Geoff Crossley came to Parlick on May 18th, rattled round the whole grid challenge in an hour and a half AND made it back to the hill! Amazing!

Northern Challenge Trophy

By Simon Blake on  April 17, 2018 14:09

A reminder about the Northern Challenge Trophy - a competition anyone can enter whenever they like, with REAL MONEY prizes. Here's the current standings, with only a couple of intrepid Pennine pilots on the scoreboard so far. When the weather gets a bit better, let's see some more scores up there, eh?

Parlick Grid attempt

By Simon Blake on  March 13, 2018 14:11

As predicted at last night's Club Night, today's weather was good for a Parlick Grid attempt. Chairman Jones trundle round the first 9 cylinders AND made it back to the ridge, thus scoring 9.5 points - the first score of the 2018 season.
And as the PGC is one of the challenges in the Northern Challenge Trophy, that also means he's the first Pennine pilot on that scoreboard too, clocking up 223 points (tbc).

Grid Challenge Record Broken!

By Simon Blake on  September 28, 2014 18:56

July 12th was a good day for the Grid Challenge. Mike Endacott scored a solid 8 on his first attempt, Simon Baillie came back and equalled his previous best with 11, but the big news is Phil Colbert has smashed the record by tagging the first THIRTEEN cylinders, in numerical order, in one flight.
