THE DAY—>       Saturday 17th November

THE TIME —>      Commencing 2:30pm

THE PLACE —>     The Dolphin Inn, Gillingham. Dorset


 

Hello, fellow static aviators…

Hopefully you have all enjoyed a fabulous year flying in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside up on White Sheet Down.

     

<—Open Slopes events were very successful—>

 

Fortunately we were blessed with fabulous weather this year

     

2018 was a great year for “F3F” at White Sheet

Practising, competitions or just for the sheer enjoyment of flying the pinnacle of sailplane technology

     

Piloting skills are superb and the accompanying soundtrack of an

F3F airframe howling across the sky is quite exhilarating

 

~~~~~~~~~~

Organised events have all run very successfully in 2018,

with one exception…. You knew it was coming…

Scale !

 

What happened?

These guys don’t know…

 

When all the sky gods cooperate and scale birds get airborne,

 it is always a marvellous sight to see.

       

No! this gentleman is not relaxing.

Contrary to what this photo may suggest, actually,  this gentleman is navigating for a fellow pilot.

A very important job and proof that, yes, pictures do lie.  Honest…

 

We all wish you better luck with your scale events next year Chris

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

TO BUSINESS,  LADIES AND GENTLEMAN.

2019 is fast approaching, and the winter season will soon be upon us again.

As always this signifies that it is AGM time once again.

Yes!

I am positive every one of you just shouted Yes…

   

Please add WSRFC AGM to your diary

 

As in previous years, the 2018 AGM will be held at

The Dolphin Inn, Gillingham, Dorset.                      Kicking off at 2:30pm.                                 Saturday 17th November 2018

       
       

How to find us …

For those of us who haven’t been before the postcode for your SAT-NAVs is —>

SP8 4HB

 

For those without all that newfangled pesky technology —>

 

The Dolphin Inn can be found on the B3092 on the outskirts of Gillingham Dorset.

If you drive through Gillingham on the B3092 looking to your starboard side and do not see The Dolphin Inn, turn around and drive back through Gillingham.

Once again, survey the starboard side and you will be sure to find The Dolphin Inn.

If not, turn around and repeat all the above until you do….
