Sunny (but windy) Saturday

A busy day at the launch point with a brisk north-westerly making launches on 24 a little more challenging than usual.  Good character building stuff for novice pilots!  The wind calmed somewhat by later in the afternoon and activity continued until nearly sunset.

The 'Red Kite' Booker Regionals 2015

The entry list for the 2015 'Red Kite' Booker Regionals is now open. The comp will use the Handicapped Distance Task format pioneered at Booker, so if you have a glider with a less than ideal handicap you need not fear spending your afternoon in a field watching the hot ships zooming past, you will be back enjoying a beer with the rest of the pack.

For full details of how the task setting works, and the entry form, visit the website.

There is a limit to how big a grid we can fit in, so avoid disappointment and get your entry in now.
