All the grass has gone from the race track, this will be muddy if we get wet weather. Please do not drive across the race track, Park only against the Armaco fencing. We have pallets to lay down to make a crossing if it gets too bad

Plenty of Lift at Frocester

Good lift at Frocester, only two fliers

 at Selsley, good thermal lift but the slope lift was variable as a variety of thermals pulled the wind direction, a little too easy like shooting fish in barrel 

A strong breeze at Frocester, but too far south a give good lift


Haresfield and Frocester


Sunday at Frocester
A good breeze all day
