Sunday October 15th: Free Flight Competition postponed due to high wind forecast.
Sunday looks like a dry day with a wind from the west which is below 10mph on average, but gusting to 15/18 mph.
If these conditions hold the postponed Steel Trophy contest will be run 10:00 onwards at New Bigging.
The report on last Saturday’s “Come and Try” event in Pitencrief Park can be read here.
If any parents have photos of their children flying and would like to have them published on this web site send them to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
This Saturday (9th) the club is running a Control Line Aerobatic competition in Pitencrief Park (The Glen) as part of “Come and Try week”.
Our event will be on the South lawn with setting up starting at 9:00 with the tent arriving 10:00 and flying 11:00 to 16:00. The plan is to have a static display and RC simulator in the tent overlooking two circles on the South Lawn. Also commentary will be provided from the tent. One circle will be used for the Bob Hutton Trophy competition and the second for display flying and “Come and Try” by visitors. It is also hoped to have catapult/hand launch gliders down wind of the circles for “Come and Try”.
The forecast is sunny and dry until 13:00 then sunshine and showers thereafter. Wind will be Westish 11mph but experience over many years is that forecast speed tends to drop as time passes up to the event.
“Come and Try”
Somehow the Free Flight Competition this Sunday (27th) was missed off our Forthcoming Events listing. The list has now been updated and other events added.
