The Southern Winter league 2019 / 20.

(note; entry details to rd 1 in previous / above post )

Frustratingly due to my continued  poor health, & imminent Neuro & Spinal Surgery, it is very unlikely that I am going to be able to attend any Winter league competitions, or in fact do any flying at all for many months. 

I will however be doing all the admin, taking entries,  posting any comp info on BARCS , Facebook & Whitesheet RFC Website. Doing so will help keep me involved.

The 'on the day' organising & the CD'ing of these comps ;-  is in the very safe hands of Graeme Mahoney, Nigel Whitchalls, John Philips and Pete Burgess. Between them they will be sharing this role. The Southern Winter league is therefore  is in very safe hands. 

A huge sincerest personal thanks therefore from myself to Graeme, Nigel, JP, & Pete , thanks Guys 👍

Looks like 8 to 15mph N/NE at Whitesheet.

Pure North at Eastbourne with a similar windspeed.

A little too light for my flying ability.

Sorry I will not be there. I hope you get a comp.

Confirmed  Entry list.

Only 2 pilots have said they will travel to Eastbourne 

Likewise 2 pilots for Butser hill. 

 

Hopefully the various forecasts will swing around from the present N to a more NW direction, Whitesheet will then be the venue & we can get the league underway.

A true Northerly at Whitesheet  being very crossed lumpy & dumpy, & not suitable for an F3f comp.

Weather & Venue call this evening at around 8.00pm,

Southern Wint lg rd 1 sund 27th Oct.

Cancelled

Hi All,

                       Unfortunately a true Northerly continues to be forecast for most / All of Sunday,  this direction is very crossed  & unsuitable for staging an F3f event at Whitesheet. 

Sadly with only 3 competitors saying they would travel to Eastbourne, this competition is therefore cancelled .

Hi all, next Sunday 24th Nov is the next date for the Southern Winter League. 

The first of Stuart's awaited spine surgery operations has now been booked for this Wednesday, so he has contacted several volunteers to bring the equipment, make a slope and weather call, and run the day.  Stu - we wish you well.

Please can you register your interest by PM to me or on this thread, including which locations you can attend (White Sheet or Eastbourne).  Weather call will be on Friday.

Nigel
