Recommended Posts

I propose we run these events from,

November 2017  through to March 2018.

Second Saturday of the Month.

I also propose that we run a reserve day each month on the fourth Saturday of the month.

To ensure that we do not spoil others weekends the reserve date will only happen if that months event failed to run and will not be carried over into other months, so only one event each month will run.

Also the reserve date will not run in a Westerly wind ( Pole Cot slope) .

Other slopes are rarely flown by sports fliers and also have options for accommodating any that do turn up. 

These measures should ensure we do manage to get a result this year and should minimise our impact on others.

Now that sounds like a plan.

Anything that gives us more then one option is a good thing.

Thanks Mike, that's good for me too.

We haven't got anyone called Ryan in our group, have we?  I just came back from Faro yesterday, the plane was full and they were cramming in passengers from flights cancelled on Tuesday - one visibly upset by the experience.  Consider myself lucky.  Weather was brilliant too .......  :yes:

Great to see the entry list growing nicely for rd 1 of the Midlands Wint lg :thumbsup:, hopefully it will continue to grow throughout the week.

Unfortunately for Samuel & I, as much as we would like to join you all to enjoy a days racing on the Mynd, the date clashes for us.

Keeping everything crossed that you get a good weather & that you all enjoy a 'Cracking comp' :thumbsup:

 

    Stu & Sam.

Sorry Guys, I have the honour of being the first to cancel a 2017 winter league event.

 

:cry:

 

Direction is :cry:

Wind strength is :cry:

Likelihood of mist and rain is :cry:

Meanwhile the rest of the country has lots of wind - I suggest that you all go and play elsewhere.
