Indoor flying  
 Starts again in the Autumn; we had a very good season, with only a tiny financial loss paid by the GMFC.
Chris Bishop and Darren worked hard to make this a success, the three slot system worked well but the fixed wing slot was too crowded to allow depron models to flown safely.

A strong Breeze at Haresfield; no rain in the afternoon but very cold



Good Friday at Haresfield:
Exactly as forecast, the rain gave way to sunshine and blue skies at 2pm an a part from a 30 second shower we had Haresfield ridge at it's best until the gray closed in at 4pm.
good lift at Haresfield until 1.30PM when rain stopped play

A very busy morning, Andy Westgate made an appearance, but disappointed us a little by not bringing any of his superb models.
Doug flew his Blanik, see photo and Sting, Ade his Thermik XXXL, Bill Whisper, Peter Ash26, Alan Ester K8 

Photo: Mike's DC4, flew well and looked great, read more  

In the afternoon the wind swung to the west facing slope and late afternoon on to Frocester
