Cliff,
With current forecast for tomorrow showing 16mph and gusts of 24mph I’m not happy to fly in those conditions and with the chance of wrecking a model. As we have a standby date which still allows to competition to count don’t think this should be a problem. I know a couple of guys will moan but what the heck.
Sorry again Cliff and hopefully see you on the 31st March.
John

I agree with John. High wind speeds and showers in the morning - why not use the alternative date and hope for better conditions.

Just logged in to see if you've cancelled yet, Cliff, to see the emails from S&J
I'm not particularly happy with the conditions either, and with a reserve date in a couple of weeks, wouldn't mind hanging on for possibly improved weather
Regards
Andrew

Thank you for your input Gents.

I have just checked XC and they are giving further increased wind speeds of 21 - 31 mph.

We are getting close to the minimum to run, if others would prefer not to fly - please let us know asap and we will use the reserve date.

Regards,

Cliff

Cliff, I have just checked with Wellsbourne weather and it's not going to be fun, I will give It a miss, and let's go for the reservoir date. Mick

Hi Cliff,
Looks like the three amigos will have to scratch so John, Denis and Ian will bow out.
Would we really find thermals or would it be a minimum sink comp with very dicy landings.
Yes please for the reserve date Sunday 31st at Fish. (MOTHERING SUNDAY). So all on best behaviour!!!

Regards
Ian Embarassed

Due to the inclement weather this event has been postponed until the reserve date.

The reserve date is Sunday March 31st.

I have been informed that this is Mothering Sunday, please bear this in mind when making your plans!


On top of this it turns out that the Hawling competition is on Easter Sunday, talk about the best laid plans of mice and men!

If these dates are inconvenient - please advise.
