Murray Cup 2013

The forecast of appalling weather, and a competing event at Diggle, resulted in a very low turnout for the Murray Cup competition. Six members who had stayed overnight in Blair Atholl after the East of Scotland Open were joined by four who had " interesting" journeys on the day. To our surprise there was dead calm when we arrived. By 0930 we had a little gentle breeze for 500. We moved back to 600 and had just a little more breeze, but after that decided not to move to 900 but to shoot 600 again as the forecast was for the wind to triple in strength about noon, and we detectedd the first signs of that. As soon as we had made the decision the sky became blue, the sun shone and the wind disappeared, but we stuck to our guns and were glad we had done so. Halfway through the second shoot at 600 it became very stormy with poor visibility. Considering the forecast we were very lucky indeed. The competition was close with only two Vs separating the top two in TR and three Vs likewise in F/TR.
