Thanks for the photos Adrian.

And also many to all for coming to the event! Another great success! Lots and lots of flying on the Saturday with plenty of wind, and I have to say, a very unusual amount of scale machines!  :) 9 Stones delivered the lift again, and I believe everything all size and weight flew!
I counted 17 pilots at one point of the day. Again, very good turn out despite the weather forecast that was not really in our favor!
Always good also to see some new faces, and members of the public being also more and more interested in our flying activities.

On the Saturday, we had a much more quiet day (I was knackered from the Saturday I have to say!) with 15 pilots and again, new faces :) Electric models were out for some nice thermal hunting, the total opposite of the previous day, and this is what makes it interesting! I believe everybody flew, and with (cheaters!!  :P) or without the twirling things in the front.
Thanks again to Keith for coming back with the trainer and the buddy box to give someone a go (but after flying my floater, he did not needed it!)

So, again, many thanks to all for coming, another great weekend with a bunch of friends for what are some of the best social and flying events in the country!

Here are a few photos. I will make the usual page with much more as soon as I recover!  :)

Oh, and we had some drama! :)
Big fire at the back of the slope. Road was closed to traffic. The fireman did not wanted any sandwiches, cakes, coffee or tea. We tried hard all afternoon! When they left in the evening, we even had the sirens "salute" from one of the big red truck  ::)
But, we had the visit of Mr Whippy on the Saturday... And from Delicio on the Sunday. Meetings with full service!  :)
