As you may know Thames Valley Soaring Association have for many years arranged a slope day out at least once a year This is dependant on the wind direction on the day so a number slopes for all wind directions have to be arranged. To make the most of all this organising we have been invited to join them and Meon Valley SA on their day out. It is a full day and a meal is organised for the evening. The days chosen this year are 27 April and 7 September.
The slopes are, clockwise from South, Knap Hill, White Sheet, Westbury, Watership Down, Mercury and Martinsell. The selected direction will be posted the day before on the TVSF web site (see www.tvsf.co.uk) and on ours. This is a general invitation to all members just keep in touch for the final location.
THE MEETING WILL NOT TAKE PLACE DUE TO THE WEATHER FORCAST FOR TOMMOROW

Twice a year Thames Valley Silent Flyers organise a day out this year they are combining with Meon Valley and ourselves. All members of the club will be welcome but parking may be a problem so if attending if possible combine travelling.
The venue is to be Whitesheet Hill as the wind has been swinging to the south west. Start time is 10:00 and there is an invitation to the Hunters Lodge for anyone who wants to go. After a hard days flying the guys tell me that they peel off around five pm.
