Welsh Open 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Just been looking at the forecast for the weekend, and with other family commitments. 

I have decided to give  Wales a miss this time.

BUT I do have a hotel twin (two adults) room booked and paid for, that cannot be canceled. For Thursday night to Saturday night.

It is in Premier  Inn Pencoed  CF35 5HY.

So if anyone would like to  use it,  I would glad to see it go to a "good home"

I know it is short notice but it is worth me posting this just in case.

PM me with you email or phone number and I will send the booking details. 

Cheers Tony

Tried to get to the Bwlch via Nantymoel today and as John said before the road is closed.

I then found this link 

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/bwlch-rhigos-mountain-roads-closed-15081495

Looks like it will be closed all weekend as well, but I think if you go through Treorchy you should be alright.

I'll find out tomorrow morning when I will try to fly, but the wind looks a bit variable. Looks like it will be SE at the weekend.

Has anybody flown that direction.

David.

Hi Dave,

If it's the far crest then I hope my stumpie little legs can carry my not so little belly that far. Haha.

Unless on comp days we can use the dirt road going round the back of the crest. Although, that would be to easy I suppose... 😂

Bags are packed, gliders are charged, see you guys in the morning.

Another 4 rounds flown today on back of wrecker. No rain or clagg. Variable wind speed throughout the day.

A classic welsh open.

Many thanks to Kev, Pete, Mark AJ and buzzer supremos for a great comp.

For me 2 cuts over the weekend cost me 2 round wins but happy with 12th place!

Awesome weekend guys. Thanks to the organisers for a brilliant comp and well done to those who toped the leader board. 

What a brilliant weekend, all round. Not just the flying. Everything was great.
