AUGC alumni MIchael Scutter is the new standard class junior world champion after winning at Narromine on 12 December 2015.
The day began with remarkably good humour among the 40 or so contestants who landed out yesterday. Annemiek Koers from the Netherlands was all smiles despite the difficulties her crew had in locating her in the vast wheat paddocks to the north, only arriving back at Narromine near dawn. The morning briefing was lively, filled with laughter and the usual claps and cheers for the previous day winners and Honourable Mention recipiants.
Not surprisingly, the Australian team, the mostly Australian organising committee and the media team were all excited and overjoyed when Matthew Scutter crossed the threshold of runway 22 – a bit later than expected.
