On Saturday staff and associates of the Kidwells group met at Shobdon airfield for Kidwells Law 2nd Helicopter Hover challenge.  The Kidwells challenge cup is awarded once per year to the winner of an event meant to test a person’s nerves, dexterity and skill whilst still being fun and exhilarating.  The challenge involves the participant to hover a Robinson 22 helicopter for 6 minutes with an instructor on board. The instructor would make the final decision on the winner and he was looking for multiple handling skills, calmness, listening skills and eventual improvement.  The prize offered for this particular challenge was a flight around Herefordshire for the winner and two friends or family in the five seater Jet Ranger.  The weather was questionable in the morning but the clouds broke up just in time for the challenge.  Reyes Catering Company prepared a wonderful BBQ afterwards for all to enjoy before the winner was announced. Congratulations to Lewys Phillips, pictured below.
