The Southern Winter F3F League will run this year on the fourth Sunday of November, January and February, with the Saturday of the same weekend being used as a reserve option.  John Phillips will CD on the day, assisted by White Sheet club members.

Please indicate attendance on the Event Calendar which is weblinked from the dates above, including availability for the Reserve date.  Minimum 8 firm entrants.  Weather call will be Friday evening, or on Thursday evening if the Saturday looks more promising.

JP, Nigel

Hi everyone, just a reminder that the first Southern Winter F3F is next weekend.  Please register attendance on the calendar event for Sunday here and Saturday here.

As numbers are too low to run a Saturday comp, the weather call for Sunday will be tomorrow evening.  If anyone has looked at the forecast and changed their mind about travelling for it then please can you update your calendar entry to assist the decision.

With Light SE wind and rain from lunch time I am going to bow out of this one.

Looks SSW to me and a decent blow. Which Weather app you using Graham ?

Hi all, sorry for late post but a couple of us were offline this evening.  Unfortunately as the slope is unsuitable for F3F in a southerly (or east of that) and a lot of rain is forecast, the comp is OFF.  Let's hope it all comes together in January.

Weather call update - Saturday is no longer being considered as Sunday has the slightly better conditions.  However the direction is being closely watched as we ideally need a little West in the direction for F3F.  The next update will be Friday evening.

We are leaving the call for Sunday to tomorrow morning in the hope that the forecast swings slightly in our direction. 

We did approach the paragliding club to see if we can borrow their SE bowl but they have some members planning to fly that day.

Hi all, unfortunately the wind direction hasn't improved, so the comp is  OFF.  Lets hope for next month.

Nigel, JP and Graeme

With Midland, Welsh and Southern winter leagues, that is eight in a row cancelled. That is bad luck. We should chant for the right weather a week prior to comps, it can't hurt.

You have to get the right chant, Bruce. Don’t want to be praying for rain!

Good point John but no, same chant, you just think of what you want while chanting. Once I had a buyer for a house call me after ten minutes of chanting! Mustn't be greedy though. Might help to be born on Christmas day, not sure. I would probably do better at F3F but I wont cheat!

Hi all, the next Southern Winter League event is scheduled for next weekend if the weather plays ball.  Please register your interest on the event calendar for Sunday here or Saturday reserve here.
