In conjunction with the MSA, we will be running an eSoaring competition at Fish Meadow on Sunday 16th July.

This is an extra comp (to replace the Pillerton comp that was lost earlier in the year due to bad weather) so that points for the Midland Championship can be accrued over the full six rounds. With the best four from six to count.

Entries are invited for the Midland Region eSoaring Championship competition at Fish Meadow Upton upon Severn, on Sunday 16th July 2017.

Fish Meadow is at Upton upon Severn, Worcestershire. Upton is situated on the banks of the River Severn and lies mid-way between the towns of Tewkesbury and Malvern. It is close to Exit 1 on the M50 motorway.

On leaving the M50 at Exit 1, take the A38 north for three miles, in the direction of Worcester, to the staggered junction with the A4104 at Bluebell Farm and signed to Upton upon Severn.

Turn left on to the A4104. In one mile you gain access to the flying field via a "slip-road" from the A4104.

When approaching from the East, the slip road is on your left and about 100 yards before you reach the bridge over the River Severn and just a few yards past the entrance to the Upton Marina.

The slip road runs parallel to and beside the main road towards the bridge and the river bank. Turn right just before the river bank and drive slowly through a tunnel, under the A4104, which leads via an iron gate, with a notice board on it, on to Fish Meadow flying field. Access by vehicle through this tunnel is now controlled by a locked barrier. The combination of the lock is only made known to members.
A post code of WR8 OPB Will get you to East Waterside but do not go to the end of the road turn right under the bridge onto the meadow


08.30am to 9.30am – Signing on, flight testing and Altimeter checks where required.
09.45am - Pilot Briefing
10.00am - Contest start time
After three or probably four rounds - 30-minute lunch break
