Slope/flat

Monday Copied from the forum
Monday pm at Frocester was great! A gentle 5 mph breeze produced really smooth consistent lift. Andy (Tiger) and Christine flew their Zagi and Aliaj, Phil (tf) his Pegase and me my Slipstream and Miraj.
And for the first time in ages - it wasn't cold, nor wet, my first outing in 2010!. Made me feel a lot better after missing Sunday morning 

Tuesday
Strong lift on the SE facing slope Rodborough, Graham found the white Zagi I lost last week in the Snow

Wednesday, 

Thursday
A strong breeze at the SE slope Rodborough 

Friday

Saturday
A light  breeze on Selsley, enough for the models

Sunday
A good day, enough lift for scale models to be flown, and nearly enough for Andy's A10
Bryan's ASK18 went well in the light lift and conditions were ideal for my Pegase
