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!
Scale day at Whitesheet draws large numbers
Despite the threat of rain, there was finally a chance for the Scale fly-in to run on May 4th.
Here are a few of the pictures

Fly-in Event This Weekend (June 11th 2017)
Please come along to Whitesheet hill this Sunday and have a fly with like-minded pilots at the second of the 2017 social fly-ins.
All are welcome!
The weather is set to be fine with a good breeze into the SW bowl – the event is therefore ON!
Once again, the club and the hill look forward to seeing you!
As I will be busy all day tomorrow (Frome Chess Congress if anyone wants to come and spectate 😉 ) where I won’t have access to the internet, I have decided to make the weather call for Sunday now. Crazy talk.
The weather looks suitably good for a jolly nice day’s flying at Whitesheet, with a gentle to moderate SW breeze forecast. Some wet stuff may make an appearance later in the afternoon, but I wouldn’t be too concerned about this if you would like to come along and have a fly.
Fingers crossed for a good inaugural event!
