With all the other things going on nearly forgot we are well into spring and it's "barbe" time again.

This will be a low key event but will be good planning for June.

I hope Tracy & Paul are still on for the cooking after my "blog" of the 5th April. Appears I'm not only minus my model but the bad boy for dropping "Paul in it

Slope flying

Devereaux tump where I live was great, a series of small thermals kicking off from the houses below gave excellent lift
I flew my elderly MiniJ after fitting a new V tail


Sunday at Selsley
Very poor lift early in the morning,  nearly mid day before any good thermals appeared
