Open Slopes Event 5/5 : Sunday September 10th

Plan change – Now a Slope Event up the hill

Due 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.

Open Slopes ’17 Event 3 of 5

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!

cheers,
