Interruptions and delays

Following the request of farmers, organizers have brought us together to tell us of their decision to stop the contest after the first flight and F1B and F1C Wednesday, July 31 and the next day, Thursday, August 1 for F1A.
We decided by mutual agreement to pursue this difficult but wise decision in order not to damage crops and preserve future competition in the plain of Noizé.
Crops had fallen behind after a very cool spring and successive storms just before the contest, the harvest could not be completed on time.
