Thank you Gordon (et al) for your optimistic entry considering the weather forecast.

I too have been optimistically hanging on until the last minute, hoping for a miraculous reversal of the forecast conditions. Although wind speeds have dropped a little, as has the amount of likely rain.

The possibilty of enjoying a full and enjoyable day of flying is unlikely.

I've therefore reluctantly taken the decision to cancel this event.

Cliff
