Hi Guys,

              Above entry list is up to date.

Having been following both the BBC & XC forecasts for many days for round 3 this Sunday, up until lunchtime today it was looking favourable for us with a dry day being forecast, and a light S- SW. However, since lunchtime today the wind direction has changed to an unfavourable direction, this being SE - SSE  http://www.xcweather.co.uk/forecast/mere_wiltshire  http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2642730 . Unfortunately the Whitesheet RFC slopes don't cater for anything E of South so if these forecasts hold we shant be able to hold the comp.

However i've decided that with only a slight change in wind direction needed for us to stage the comp, and a dry day being forecast, i've decided to hold off the weather call until midday tomorrow in the hope that tomorrow mornings forecasts show a swing back onto the slope.

 

We do of course have a reserve date, this being the 25th should the forecasts remain unfavourable for us.

Hi Guys,

            With both the BBC & XC forecasts still showing an unfavourable SE for tomoz, I have no option but to call the comp OFF. The reserve date of Sunday 25th Jan now comes into play for this comp.

 

Its a real shame as we had a very good entry of 17 pilots for tomoz. I hope that the reserve date is convenient for you all & I look forward to receiving your entries in due course.

If anyone needs some surgical gloves (good protection from carcinogenic glue), I have got several boxes more than I need. They are latex, powder-free and yours for £4 per box of 100. (Boots sell something similar for £2+ for 10.)

Let me know if you are interested.
