Thought I'd make a start for 2011, to replace the 2010 thread of similar title - Can a friendly Forum Moderator please unstick the 2010 thread and make this sticky in its place?

Well once again it looks like it is going to be a year of "NO WIND"!!
 
With the Ribble Valley Event cancelled due to no wind and the rescheduled date also cancelled for No Wind, I have just done a check on the forcast for the 1st Llandudno Meet and again it looks like the most wind will be from those who have beans for their breakfast!!!!!
 
Does anyone have a hotline to the Wind Gods?? Pleae ring them quick!!!
 
On a + side... Its PERFECT weather for Heli Flying!!! (ducks before the sticky buns find their target!!)

Phil Cooke is watching the situation closely, and we have been communicating re the event - and possible alternative arrangements. I'm sure Phil will be along soon with an update - and if we DO cancel, it will be flagged up here later next week.

CAC Boomerang Phil already drawn up I always seem to get carried away ,I was going to only build a 60" version but for reasons best know to my Calculator It ended up at 80 inches (force of habit) this will be closely followed by a Heinkel 100D

...and for those that haven't flown with us on the Lleyn Peninsula before, it offers some of the best coastal sites in the UK, with slopes flying ALL compass directions within a small area. The cliff top slopes and landing zones are perfect for PSS - heres a couple of most recent event write ups with photos and video to give you a feel of the event.
 
 
Hope to see you there!
