If Carlsberg did a WL - Welsh Winter League 2016-17

Recommended Posts

Was the right call though - the locals reported the Meio was clagged in and rainy, and that is lower than the Bwlch

Agreed Simon - in fact the weather calls by all of the regional CDs have been absolutely spot on!

Mad props to Jon E, Joel, Mike, JP and Pete for holding steadfast over the winter months...few if any pilots have had to travel unnecessarily, which in itself is a great achievement. We all owe them a debt of gratitude for monitoring, correlating, deliberating and interpreting the status of the UK weather, all for our entertainment and pleasure 😎👍

Cheers,

Greg

it was ripping yesterday and the forecast looks just as good. I lost 2 bars of tungsten in and around the wrecker car park and just over the wall if you happen to stumble over it!!

Truly fantastic day on the Wrecker, with a good turnout.

Martin N had the Freestyler 5 screaming round showing us the wings really do bend!

Greg was up to usual holigan tricks, that poor Ellipse!

Daniel also joined in with some very clean aeros

Keith had his pre production aerobatic machine going  very well. Baudis made! Soon to be available for order. Sorry Keith can't remember it's name... 

JP maidened his latest purchase, looked like a Swift to me but apparently it's not, couple of pics below... 

yes it really is that heavy!

Heaviest model I've ever launched! Made more difficult by the rota but went away easily.

Keith's creation (10 years in the making) is called Raptor.

JP's aerobat is the Graecalis built by by Chris van Schoor (Woodstock). The

Couldn't agree more Graeme - a wonderful day out, and what a treat to see so many new airframes!

Your Jedi Lift, Martin's FS5, JP's Graecalis, Keith's Raptor, Daniel's Stingray - scheizer, there was some top quality hardware

and piloting capability on that hill. Mike E's Needle and Shinto also looked superb, as did JP's late afternoon aerobatic stint with the Dorado.

Stars of the show imho were Daniel S with his ballistic Stingray and Keith's new Raptor design. Lots of show-boating, lots of hardware and lots of drooling (by me at least 😄). The perfect opening to a new season....

Thanks to Martin for posting the vids!

Cheers,

Greg

Just about the perfect day. 

Just the right amount of wind/lift for a great confidence boosting, mojo fondeling, sun kissed welcome to Spring.

 

Great variety of models,  top piloting. Some top recovering. Some great company.
