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!!)

Quick one here, more detail and discussion in the dedicated thread to this weekends planned event set up by Timbo.
 
Thankfully the forecast has come good! In fact its perfect for PSS flying.
 
18-25mph winds from the EAST both days with sunshine forecast.
 
So the PSSA Event is ON - meet at the Ski-Centre Easterly slope. 10am brief each day.
 
All the event details you need are HERE and travel/parking details HERE.
 
My sincere thanks to both Tim and Jonathan Demery in helping my compile these details to aid our travel.

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

Reminder to all PSS fans that next weekend, 13th and 14th August, we are running a 2 day Fly-For-Fun event on the Lleyn Peninsula, North Wales.
 
Meet at the Londis car park in Llanbedrog at 10am each day where a decision will be made on exact flying site. Details will be posted on the back of the phone box in the car park for any late arrivers, or on the PSSA Facebook/Twitter pages.
 
Proof of insureance required, thanks again to the Lleyn MAC for helping us host our 2-day meet.
 
See HERE for more details.

...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!

At this range the forecast looks most promising for this weekends planned PSS event upon the Lleyn peninsula, with 'more than adequate' winds blowing from the SW!
 

Timbo has kindly produced a most useful spreadsheet (giving each slopes GPS coordinates for Sat Navs) and a road map showing all the sites used by the Lleyn MAC (linked here with permission - many thanks Tim) relative to the Llanbedrog meet point.
 
 

Please download these files and use them accordingly upon your arrival this weekend. For any more info please see the PSSA Website HERE

Forecast on SKY is suggesting Sunday is best with clear sunny spells and strong Westerly winds, Saturday is perfectly flyable with good SW winds, but looks like we might be overcast most of the day with the odd shower maybe...
 
Sunday looks a winner!!!
 
Glad youve got the pass out Kev
