Im so glad i entered the nats for the first time .I was nervous i must say but willing. So parapikey ,parakneesup ,paramotherbrown and me parabumcrack done our journey  to kerswell green .Getting there on the friday arvo registering,getting kit ready  and socialising.Everyone impressed i think with the site .Briefing at 9.00 pm .1st task to go for a flight on navigation  which were shit conditions .Felt like you were on fast spin in  a bloody washing machine . I suppose u just looked at the map to keep your mind of the bumps and lumps. But most got back .i missed the gate  and didnt score loads of points but hey it built confidence up though. .There were also bowling landing which u had to knock over 5 skittles which i missed by a nats c**k .Could have been 250 pts. where a few pilots hit the skittles but just could not keep on ther feet so nil puor. jap slalom was enjoyable especially when you see the masters at work from 52 seconds up to 65 seconds are fantastic speeds to do it in .But kneesup and pikey also done in good times .But me 285 seconds dont ask i made my own rules in that one tell you another time but.. But all task were good experience  and tyhe event was organised very well. so i big thank you to the organisers, marshalls etc etc. and thanks to chill y and anyone who gave advice  .All scores on nats website Cant wait for next year better get practicing ..parabumcrack  p.s if you land out this time of year try not to land in a rape field .

With next year probably having team scoring as well, we need a good load of lemmings to take part to beat the "Owls" and such like, who think that they can beat the Lemmings.

Who's up for it??

We are waiting for Pascal to get home and then we are going to try to get him to put on a fun comp in France. If we all go to this and have a good time it might encourage more of us (like me) to have a go at the big one next year.
I would have though Bumcrack could have knocked those pins over with his snoring.

Not a chance mate, we might have only one Owl competing, but we've monopolised the marshalling!  ;)
