Thought that's what the rudder was for?  ::)


Hope the forecast is wrong and you are able to run the comp - good luck guys.

Hi All


Just checked again and nothing has really changed, still a very strong westerly gusting to 35mph! which is a real problem at our site, so as of this moment, unfortunately the competition will not take place.


i will talk over with Garry as early as poss, but I think this will be the call.


Sorry


Steve

Oh dear ! That's a shame, I was looking forward to this one !  Accommodation already paid for !  But probably the right decision as Met. Office is still saying westerly, 15mph gusting 28mph, so it would be challenging at any site.


 Can we have a definitive decision asap, please?

The decision after many discussions with Steve is that the comp tomorrow is cancelled.
The forecast crosswind is just too high for landing. We feel that some are travelling large distances so this is the right thing to do.
Huge shame.......

and I flew back from Korea just to call for Steve!!! No really but that is a great pity. Lets hope we can convince the club to host one next year. I will also see if they will allow an NPOD.

Unlucky Steve and Garry, great shame. Hopefully you'll be back on the calendar next year. Steve

Yes, thanks for the refund of the entry fee, Steve.  And I even got a refund on my accommodation cost, so not a bad outcome after all,  but just didn't get to do those schedules.   What a difference a day makes - it's ideal flying weather here today !  Perhaps next year ?
