Hi Everyone,

After consulting with experienced local pilots, regrettably the direction is not quite on for White Sheet, and both numbers and direction are too marginal for the Long Man SW slope.  Therefore the comp is OFF.

Next date is December 22nd, so get your Xmas shopping done early.

Southern Winter lg rd 4 Sund Jan 26th .

 Weather Call postponement ;- Delayed until 9.00 - 9.30 am Saturday 25th 

                                                                     The various forecasts for Sundays competition continuing to remain unclear. We have a very nice SW being forecast, however showers or longer periods of rain are possible.  After chatting with 'my SWL team'  of Graeme, JP & Nige,  having already lost 3 competitions & the SWL yet to get underway, so as to give us the best chance of making an accurate weather call & staging the comp I am delaying the weather call until around 9.00 -930 tomorrow (Saturday) morning.

Southern Winter lg rd 4 Sund Jan 26th 

Weather call ;-    Competition cancelled .

Sadly the various forecasts have taken a distinct turn for the worse. Persistent rain now being forecast throughout most of the day, this being heavy for much of the time.

This is such a shame as with 16 confirmed entries these being a mixture of regular, newish & new pilots to F3f, we had the perfect mix for a winter league comp.

SWL date reminder for you, we are well overdue better luck for these.  

Rd 5  Sund Feb 23rd 

Rd 6 sund Mar 22nd.
