Entries are invited for the 3rd Midland Region eSoaring league competition of 2018 at Fish Meadow Upton upon Severn, on Sunday 20th May 2018.

Please note: We have Saturday 19th as a back up day should the forecast for Sunday not be flyable.
When entering (below) please indicate if you will be also available on the Saturday, should the need arise

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 (near the marina).

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. But will be open from 8.30 until 10.00am on the day of the comp!.
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

05.00pm – Results and Prize giving.

A £7.00 entry fee is payable at sign in.

The Comp is on for Sunday.
I have made this decision early so that we can now sort out our weekend and not be in limbo.
Have a good Saturday and see you Sunday.

Regards All
Ian P
