Gloucester MFC

Sunday 20th June.  GMFC Midsummer's Great Pork Roast & BBQ.

Following last years success we will again be roasting a few legs of pork together with the usual quantity of your favourite sausages, burgers & bacon butties.

Our “state of the ark” multi spit ‘Rotisserie’ is having it’s yearly service as I tap the keyword. Tracy & Paul will be in charge of roasting and will try to keep up a steady supply of food for the day.

The kettle will be on from early morning providing tea and coffee; bacon baps will also be available to order during the morning. Roast pork and other items available from midday onwards

Darren's running a tabletop sale so any unwanted modelling items bring them along they might just sell. Could do with a few tables (pasting tables ideal) if anybody has one we can borrow. (Contact Darren or CB).


 No flying dates Summer 2010 due to Auto grass race meetings.

There may be members of the Auto grass club carrying out various task outside these dates, please be vigilant and work together to ensure safety for all. It will be necessary to move all our bits and pieces to the container or elsewhere prior to both race meetings. 

More details of exact times we cannot fly to follow.

Slope/flat field

The forecast looked good, but I ignored it and took my Starlight to Selsley. This was a good move as the slope lift faded about 3.00PM' The thermal lift was strong and so was the sink. Bill got his Maxishady very high

There was lift about but I struggled, I was bungeeing from the Gloucester club and had to stop following the lift as I neared the motorway
The evening at Selsley, the wind stopped to leave some smooth thermal lift, very pleasant but me Andy failed to dot our models. It was very pleasant cruising around looking for lift, one of those magical evenings - no wind and plenty of lift
The slope lift was poor, but the thermals very very strong, models were able to get uncomfortably high very quickly.
Alan flew his MU13

Very strong slope lift at Frocester

Strong lift at Frocester, gusting to about 30MPH

We started at Frocester and moved to Selsley mid morning, lift was good but landings turbulent. Alan flew his ASK8
The afternoon was very busy see   for some of the photos
Ade's Thermik went well , Guy's Slipstream was nearly specked out, Ben maidened his Middle phase, Bill flew his ASW28

I broke the fuselage on my Blade Sunday morning, it has just come back from the invisible menders, no wonder he stays invisible
