26/5/16: Fantastic day of scale flying again

Last Sunday (May 22) saw the second of our club Scale Fly-ins in 2016.

The event was very well attended by scale flyers from far and wide, many of whom were visitors to the club for the first time – wonderful to see.

Despite a little interruption from the wet stuff, the sun broke out in the afternoon and a great day of thermal chasing was had by all.

Thanks to Chris Williams for organising and running a very friendly and safe event and for providing the first-class photos below

The next event is on Sunday July 3rd – why not come along and join in.

Free tea and coffee to all from the club chairman’s trusty camp stove!

First competition – Nominated Manooooovers

The first competition of the year, and the subject of the much lauded calendar-poster for 2016, was due to run on April 17. Due to the lightest of breezes, the competition did not run, but everyone had a jolly nice time flying sailplanes, drinking camping coffee and eating cake. Watch this space for when the next competition will be advertised and when the rescheduled nominated manoeuvres will take place.
