Andy Nash wins main trophy at Inter-Ex 2014

Hi,
i just wanted to let you know, that Andy Nash (HandyAndy in this forum) won last weekend the "Querdenkerpokal/ Lateral thinking trophy" at Inter-Ex 2014 for his fantastic presentation of the DAG-GT. This is the main trophy of the event. This year the 29th edition of the pan-european Inter-Ex gathering of experimental flight took place close to Paris/France at Boissy sous Yon. An international group of pilots from six nations came together, but Andy took the well deserved trophy to the UK!
Congrats, Andy!

Inter Expo 2014 - France

A big thank you Stephan.

Wow a great weekend. The French people made us feel very welcome; warm sunny weather, with blue skies made for a completely wonderful event.
The MCB club should be very proud, a fantastic team effort.

I was very surprised to be given such a prestigious award, I did enjoy the weekend.

So the question has to be, can the UK put together a 2-day event for Inter Expo in 2016?

Inter- Expo is in Germany next year.

check out the link below for previous years.

Thank you Bill, Rich, Steve, Chas, Cali and Graham for all your kind words. Very different for me to be a winner.

Stephan.
I downloaded the pictures into a story line. Just for a bit of fun.
Good trip home, sea very calm, but it was a bit Long.
left the flying field at 11 am Monday, drive to ferry port 4 hours, checkin 1.5 hours before ferry departs, 4 hour ferry crossing, customs checks took over an hour, 3 hour drive home, arrive home 00.30 Tuesday morning.
But with a big smile on my face.
Regards Andy
