Phil's news letter 12/03/2012
Oven and cooker repairs Gloucester
have just seen on the Scale Soaring Site that the planned
event for tomorrow at White Sheet (11th March is OFF)
I am aware that the numbers who had originally intended to
go had dwindled dramatically, myself included but just in case some of you were
still intending to go I thought that I had better post the decision.
The good news is that they will be trying for the reserve
date of the 25th. March.
John Freeman won the 3 flight thermal with three flight of nearly 30 minutes each

Sunday April 1st will be the first of the themed days and as it's All Fools Day
we will be starting with anything silly, daft, unusual, weird or just total
insane . I'm sure the weird imagination of our members will come up with
strong lift again at Frocester, but a little murky

Hi Phil, A great shot of an SR over the commons. We are watching All Creatures Great and Small at this very moment. I am just finishing a house project that took me almost out of creating planes for a year. At least the work I did paid off for Gregg Bolton in his setting the fastest DSing speed for an EPP plane at 238. The new DS-48 is one of those planes that hits the design mark you were hoping for. Certainly not all do. On to some new designs soon. A friend is asking for a delta and the only one I made was a bit disappointing as an electric schoolyard flyer. It might just have been under powered. I soul take it too the slope for a toss.
Hows things with you?
Frocester was good but a little light this afternoon. Tim's
M60 stayed airborne with out any problem. It had been built light though.
Joined by Dan and Tony and myself...
Big lift and big sink at Selsley this morning, after a slow misty start. The floaty thermallers were doing well on it, but the
I flew a wing and a Weasel - I think the Weasel got higher than ever before, the wing did too but 30 seconds after being a speck in the sky it was down on the deck, and I ended up having to walk to the edge so I could see where it landed out, i.e. in the field behind the trees but in front of the road... that hill looks a lot higher from the bottom than it does from the top.
The lift was almost all thermally today, hardly anything off the slope at all.
Lots of buzzard chasing as well - one of which sneakily led people into some big sink then shot off back to the lift!
