Slope & soaring 

Monday
Plenty of Lift at Frocester

 Wednesday  
Good lift at Frocester, only two fliers

Thursday 
 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 

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

 

Saturday
Haresfield and Frocester

 

Sunday at Frocester
A good breeze all day
