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

Open Slopes Photos, May 2018

Open slopes a success again!

Sunday May 13th saw the return of the Open Slopes events, with the second scheduled event of the year running in absolutely stunning weather.

A good showing of twenty pilots over the day, together with around fifty models between them meant that the sky was filled with models of all kinds all day.

Free bacon rolls for all were very well received as ever!

Why not come along to the next event, to be held on Sunday June 10.
