I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Now that Llysfaen has ended, a few have suggested we do a meet at the Orme on Tuesday evenings for a few hours glidery action. Tomorrow forecast is light winds but the right direction WSW, and no rain so would be nice for the lighter, or electron assisted stuff.
Stick a post up here if anyone fancies it...... Ill almost certainly be going as yesterdays PSS meeting reminded me just how much fun we always have up there.

You didn't miss much, the wind was E'ly and very light, me and Tim waited a while to see if it would swing round to the N or W but eventually we had a look at the Ski slope side joined by Brent but it was all very light so it was a wash out.

I only have the A Cert so I guess I'm still a newbee.
I didn't realise there were records for the DLG in the Club until Jem shouted that the way the flight I on was going I could break the record of 10 mins. At that stage I had been up about 7 or 8 mins but I started the timer anyway and the timer said 22:14 mins when I landed so my total time was in the ballpark of 29 minutes.
The Akcent 2 is going like a dream now, I love this model!
Also had a play with my Garnet but at the moment I can't get any times out of it.
Tim & Jem both had a play with the Akcent and seemed to enjo it.
