Just a note to say the forecast looks rather good for our Nats this weekend.

 

If it holds up like that Bishop Hill can be pretty epic :thumbsup:

Perfect location Mark.

 

Looks like there is a decent curry house in Leslie, Reya Tandoori about 4 miles from you.

 

I may get to join you there if I am very good...

No pilots list yet Mark but we should have 12-15 entries.

 

Bit of a blow tonight, the farmer says he is busy with sheep all weekend (fnar) so we will have to walk up the front. The good news is its shorter; 0.88 mi as opposed to 1.37 mi, the bad news is its pretty steep for about 20-25mins.

 

However, its not a race to get up the hill so we can take our time. Best to park near the top of Bruce Road / Bishop Terrace, Kinnesswood, there is a car park at the side road on your left if you are feeling polite and I have added the walk to our map.  https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=202487703003799439093.0004c006fc0ba12dcacd8&msa=0&ll=56.220069,-3.316412&spn=0.017228,0.039439

 

Forecast still very good, wind calmed down a bit which is probably a good thing B)

Mark, as you say Bishop is more-or-less west facing but works fine when there is a little south in it. There seems to be some  straightening effect when the wind is cocked off a little. I suspect that when the air mass flows over Loch Leven it has to go straight up to get over the big hill in the way :unsure: !!

Yes, we've all been shagged by the bishop - legs like jelly!

Good day otherwise though - epic conditions at times!

Think Peter might get some scores out later, but every round has been won by mid/low 30s, with quite a few fliers taking different rounds. Chuffed myself with breaking 30s again too! Mike Mc also getting close with a 31 something, but many other low 30s too.

So the scores on the doors are:

1    Mark Redsell     11836.71
2    Paul Upton        10991.73
3    Tom Foreman    10787.87
4    Mark Abbotts     10718.98
5    Peter Gunning   10552.65
6    Mike McCracke 10119.48
7    David Watson    9658.41
8    George Young   9582.91
9    Ewan Maxwell    9434.47
10    Robert Carson  9088.62
11    David Reid        6489.15

Mark as dominant as the scores suggest with the vast majority sub 35, one 29.36 and a 30.11. Paul going very steady a couple of 33's in there, Tom is having a blinder with a 33 and Mark is on his heels with a best of 34 so far. My first two turns of the comp were flicks and the second lead to the death of my FS3 (it will fix) but playing catch up. Mike going OK with a new PB of 31.42.

Forecast good for tomorrow, some of us will need another 13 rounds to make a difference but here goes!
