This is of course without the usual impromptu and normal weekends :)

There is again a big gap. Anything in May, June and Summer you would like to organise, let me know!
Would like to see some aerotow action too this year :)

Cork, Shannon, any dates yet?
NI?


FALAISE - For those of you interested, this is the 3rd week end of September. 15th Anniversary this year  :)
MENEZ-HOM - as I get them
MACON - Start the 5th of May.

Any other dates?
Also, new forum, new features, each event can be added to the calendar. A post can be created for them automatically, or not. How cool is that?  ;D

Hi Fred,
If I'm being completely stupid!!
Where are these ISR events being held? Are they all Mt Leinster?

Ps. Like the updated forum.

Thanks Rob

Hey Fred, my ol' fruit, my ol' mate, my ol' friend. How can I put this  without seeming to be critical :-\

PSS,........second weekend of March. We know that "Paddy's Day" the following week is always chilly. Is there a particular reason why PSS has to be in March? And so early in March. (If you get my drift ;) )

Keith
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

You are like my girlfriend Keith, you can be critical  :-*

No particular reasons other than I pick up the same dates every years for years  ;D
Worked quite well so far, except the odd lack of wind from times to times (last year, the PSS only flew on the Sunday if I remember. Lightish stuff on the Saturday).

But if a majority want to move the date, nothing is set in stone  :)

I thought we'd talked at the last event of maybe moving the PSS to April and having an event in late May/ June time?

looking forward to meeting up ralph.

does 'about 9' mean getting out of bed at 9 or arriving at tountinna at 9?
