Monday, 14th August 2017

The party finished late on Saturday night as everyone celebrated or commiserated with each other at the end of a tiring championships due to the weather.  But lots of thanks are owed to all who made this competiton week possible and worked hard to make it as enjoyable as possible to compete at.  Who knows, Patrik Lauer did hint at hosting a World Championships and maybe it will be third time lucky with the weather behaving normally at sunny Saarlouis.

17.00hrs:   Prizegiving

Congratulations to our new European Champions and World Cup winners:  follow the links for the different discipline Medal Tables, FS, AE, CF, SP.

Helmut Bastuck took to the stage to start the proceedings for the Medal awarding ceremony, expressing his disappointment in not being able to complete all scheduled rounds. He went on to suggest that the blame fell at the feet of Patrik Lauer, County Commisioner of Saarlouis, who had promised fine weather at the Opening Ceremony!  Helmut invited Patrik to address the audience, where after apologising profusely for his failed promise, he received a rapturous applause when he said he'd donate 50 litres of beer by way of compensation!

21.00hrs:  It's been an action-packed evening as the clouds finally lifted a little after 17.00hrs when it was decided to put the two local German 4-Way teams on a lift to ascertain the conditions. Thankfully a successful exercise which allowed the competition to recommence after what had been a truly miserable day. The last lift - no 28 - took off at 20.45hrs and we now have completed Round 4 in 4-Way Open where Hayabusa have edged ahead of VR4 France by 1 point, 102 points to 101.
