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

Hi all,

Weather awful in Dublin, and so far, looks like Bunclody is the same!
Will get over there at around 14.00 or 15.00 ish. but if some of you are driving by Dublin, come and stop home for a cuppa! :)
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Thanks Bill, and we did!
But it was bloody cold! Not sure how the SFRC guys managed to stay that long at the slope flying! Alcohol, drug, craziness? We’ll never know! :)

Anyway, 15 pilots showed up, for what was a cold but gusty day!

Here are a couple of photos, more tomorrow!

 :-[ sorry, I don’t spend too much time online these days, but I have more photos!
Monday was another good day, and we ended up 4 or 5 at the slope. Lots of flying done again :)

So thanks again to you all for coming, another successful event. See you all again in about 2 weeks for more fun! :)
