Lots of people out today, including quite a few I didn't recognise. Sorry I arrived too late to see Eyeboy fail to fly anything big, but I can't blame him for that. It wasn't brilliant at first but got better, then slumped again as the sun got lower.

It was nice not to have a Southish wind making you look straight at the low sun all day.



It was Frocester with 0-2 mph wind speed. The Weasel just about managed to stay up, ballast rod removed...
