Open Slopes ’17

Fly-in Event This Weekend (May 14th 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,

Chris Lamming

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!
