A fine finale for the Open Slopes Season

Nearly thirty pilots turned up for the last Open Slopes event of 2018

What better use of the mound on top of Whitesheet’s SW bowl

Once again we got very lucky with the weather, though the conditions at times were quite light, but a great day of flying and larks was had by all

See you for more next year!

TVSF Day Out – September 2018

The Thames Valley Silent Flyers Association are organising one of their get-togethers, Thursday September 6

Here is a note from Graham Stallard, Chairman of TVSF

Finally the weather appears to be co-operating. I have left calling this on until closer to the time to save calling it off. The venue will be confirmed on Tuesday/Wednesday. However the forecast is NNE to NE so the probable venue is Watership Down NE bowl.

Attached is an updated brief (click here!) on location and directions.

Look forward to flying with you Thursday. Looks like a cracker so for.

Best Regards,

Graham Stallard.

Open Slopes June 10, Weather Call – We’re ON!

June Open slopes is ON!

We are in for good, fine weather tomorrow, although the wind will have quite a bit of East in it, so it will be a chance to fly in some of the further reaches of Whitesheet Downs.

Bring along a floater and maybe an electric assisted model to make sure you have the best chance of some good flying on the NE slopes.

All are welcome (members and non-members) to join in and chuck something off the hill.

All flyers must have appropriate 3rd party insurance to fly as is the requirement of our National Trust license. All non-members will be asked to confirm this is the case and may be asked for evidence, such as a BMFA membership card.

Tomorrow is a hoodie-sticker qualifying event, so don’t forget to bring your membership card and get your first “I was there, man” sticker!

David, Stuart and I will be there, setting up the bacon butty station from about 10:00hrs, as we did last month, these will be given away free of charge to as many as possible, until we run out!

cheers,

Chris
