Yes it was Really, Really  Gooin Oooooorf !    9 gliders lined up on Sunday, reports of over 9000',  big distances, magic climbs and mind games were at play leading up to and during the weekends classic conditions.   Good Ol' 9kts was phased out by Dastardly Dave's radio calls of "softening conditions" around Warwick and he landed early after aborting a run to Stanthorpe which would surely have given him one foot on the podium.  " Look at me Laurie " tried it on again with a local Allora farmer ... WWCRAP believes there is more to this outlanding story ..... and Sir Sluksy smashes the 300km barrier with 324.11km to wear the yellow jersey into the last few weeks of WWC8  Distance Trophy.

Can King Carl hit back with a 350 km ?  will Ol' 9kts fall twice to same old mental mind game tactics ? (thanks Dave the $50 is in the mail)   Will there be another mid week conspiracy with only three more weekends to go?   It is going down as the greatest WWC yet.....  oh and not a SLACCA  to be seen  (Self Launching Aircraft Cross Country Award)

Get out there !!!!!  the WWC8 finishes at 20 minutes before last light on 31st August....you still have time 

Update on WWC8 Points trophy coming soon....
