Fish Meadow is at Upton upon Severn, Worcestershire, Upton is situated on the banks of

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

The slip road runs parallel to the main road towards the bridge and river, follow the slip road slowly and go to the right and
follow it down the slope and under the tunnel this then opens out into Fish Meadow. Access is normally
controlled by a locked barrier but this will be open on the day from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM on the day of the comp
and again in the afternoon.

A post code of WR8 0PB will put you on the slip road but do not turn left into East Waterside.

Sorry Ian I won't be able to make this one due to a prior family commitment.

My turn to pray for rain!

(Not really - I hope all goes well).

Sorry Ian can't make it.
I had an emergency operation last week to sort out a twisted intestine. Hope to see you all at the Nationals but depends how my recovery goes.

Come on Chaps, we need more to enter to hold the comp. I think the minimum is 8. It's a Brilliant flying site, with a load of like minded chaps. Come and join us. Mick
