We’ll post go or cancelled early this evening. I’m optimistic it’ll drop!

This is confirmation that the event is going to be run and this takes into consideration the forecast and local knowledge.

If you decide not to come because of the distance to  travel and your own evaluation that will be understood of course.

We had a good day in windy but not unflyable conditions and had 4 rounds before lunch  after which it was unanimously decided we would not fly any more rounds.   The older heavier models were most numerous. 

(Keith Fisher was holding the extra tie rope to the gazebo but only during the photo.)
