Hi Chaps

Very tricky and the only thing weather maps are agreed on is that wind strength and gusts are more on Saturday.

However, they are well split on when and where the rain will hit but there is a slight preference for for Sunday, so right or wrong, I'm hoping the worst passes on Saturday and we will go for SUNDAY.

Sorry to Roger as the only person who can't make Sunday.

See you then at Wetlands

Mike

Hi All

Well the fickle weather was at least as fickle as the forecasts! Of the 5 forecasts I looked at on Friday, none was better than half correct for Saturday, as most people reported weather which was considerably different from the others!! What did today bring?
Well early morning rain cleared by the time even the early arrivers were at Wetlands; followed by breezy conditions with wind coming from at least 120deg off the forecast direction. However, it was better as it was!!

There was powerful lift,:- powerful turbulence and powerful sink. More relaunching than is normal and some very "interesting" scoring as a result. I leave you in peace to read the results.
