Is anyone that's going to the race looking for a project or willing to help me out with repairing my Skorpion. If so can you have a look here...

Sorry to post on this thread but I thought it would be a good idea as I can bring it with me to the competition.

Thanks.

How's it looking for Sunday?

Is there a weather call later on today?

Call will be made after the local weather forecast at 7pm this evening.

Not looking good though :no:

Bear with me guys, but the 7pm forecast was just pants, hardly mentioned Sunday.

Several other sites however showing torrential rain, whilst others saying only showers

At least they were all consistant about the wind - lots of it from the South

So I am going to wait until later this evening, before making the call, hope that doesn't cause anyone a problem

I've got my gliders fixed up and transmitter on charge just in case :)

We can cancel our sporting lodge in Middlesborough until 23.59. I won't pack the tweeds just yet. Mind you I'm not sure it's the Scottish type of sporting lodge...

XC weather is improving again after going off earlier. It's a tough call once again 🙄

Its the Met Office forecast for Fylingdales that is causing me the grief!

Usually these guys are on the money, but tonight they are are of step with other sites

At least the small entry will make showers less of an issue.

I saw the yellow weather warning for rain and thought it was going to be a tough call...

Sorry guys, current forecast looks abysmal, rain all morning, possible clear patch before rain returning.

Cloud cover most of the day, may mean fog  or poor visabilty even if the rain stopped.

So Sunday comp is OFF.

Yours, desperately wanting to call it on

Jon

Tough call to make John, the wind looked perfect for some really good times. Oh well, nothing we can do about the rain... :cry:

Disappointed, but I didn’t expect you to call it on Jon. A real shame.

Tough call Jon but the right one. ....after missing Wales I was really looking forward to this one. With all this rain the rust is just going to get even thicker on my thumbs 😥

Will try to get out today with the rest of the Scottish lads between rain showers.

Cheers Ewan

Me too - I was looking forward to a decent race on the southerly bowl, and with the modest numbers hoping for a 20 round epic! 😀👍

Spot on call though Jon - it's really looking rum.

Cheers,

Greg
