Hi from Hook in Hampshire

Recommended Posts

Arnold

We have recently emigrated to the UK from South Africa and our possessions, including a 100”  Sagitta and a 120” Bird of Time, are in a container currently on the high seas, hopefully still on a ship, due to land in the next few weeks ... 

Please can someone advise on a soaring club   That I can join, near RG279UA 

Regards

Arnold Paikin

Morning Arnold,

I would look towards the Alton Silent Flyers, who tend to fly in East Worldham in Hampshire.

Cracking bunch and very welcoming.

They post their flying days on here and on eSoaring.net

Hope this helps and welcome to BARCS

Regards

Eamon

Hi Arnold

Welcome to the BARCS forum

Can I suggest the Meon Valley Soaring Association (mvsa.bmfa.org)?

Membership Secretary is Tony Burbridge - tel - 02392 - 253603

or go direct to BMFA.org for a list of R/C  gliding clubs in the UK.......for me the best bet is to find the nearest slope, go there, and see who the locals have joined......others will undoubtedly follow me with their suggestions.....see! Eamon has already beaten me to it.....my typing speed is rubbish:yes:

Regards

Pete

Hi Arnold

Yes, welcome.

I would also champion Thames Valley Silent Flyers.

We are a very active flat field club with winches etc.  which would suit your models. MVSA are an excellent slope club and many of our members belong to them too. ASF is a great electric soaring club but I believe have little winch interest. Indeed some members there also belong to TVSF to get their towline fix.

Apologies Arnold, Graham is correct, ASF are predominantly electric, so probably not the best option for you, if you are winch and bungie launch.

Kind regards
