Weather call – it’s ONApologies, not quite noon, but near enough for jazz. Weather tomorrow looks pretty good – we might get a spot of the wet stuff in the afternoon, but perfectly flyable in the morning with a good SW breeze. Hopefully see you there – I’ll be the one in the tent, on bacon butty duty. Please note we are NOT on the flat field – we are up the slope!
Plan change – Now a Slope Event up the hillDue to the wind conditions and possibility of rain in the afternoon, this Sunday’s event has now changed to a slopeside event, either at Morgans or in the SW bowl of Whitesheet. A weather call will still be made around noon on Saturday, which will be mailed out, posted on barcs and put on the website here, but right now it looks like it will be a good day for the hill, if not for the original plan on the flat. I’m making this call early as this will give those who were kindly preparing food to bring a chance to change plans. I will be taking my camp stove up to Whitesheet as I did for the English Open, and will be supplying bacon rolls and tea/coffee.
Perfect weather and a great turn out for the third Open Slopes Event of 2017More info to come, but for now, here are the photos.
Tomorrow’s Open Slopes Event is ON!
The weather looks light tomorrow with gentle winds from the SW
All welcome to come along and fly at Whitesheet. There will likely be some of us with bungees, dlgs and electric assisted models.
As usual, tea, coffee and doughnuts will be provided, free of charge!
Hopefully see you there
Fly-in Event This Weekend (July 9th 2017)
Please come along to Whitesheet hill this Sunday and have a fly with like-minded pilots at the first of the 2017 social fly-ins.
All are welcome!
A weather call will be made on Saturday around noon, with the decision being posted both here and on BARCS: www.barcs.co.ukThe club has recently altered its rules with respect to power assist models – this means that only a gale or rain will prevent us from flying – just remember to pack an electric assisted model (motors are now permissible for altitude gain at the hill).
Please note that these events are taking the place this year from our usual competitions – the idea is just to get people together to enjoy the beautiful site.
The club and the hill looks forward to seeing you!
