Looks like I missed 2 good day's flying. I was up the Cloud today and no one else was there! Very light wind so no good for PSS but gorgeous weather. It was packed with walker everywhere. I must have answered the question "How do they stay up, thermals?" "No that is a type of underwear!"

Shame.

Happy New Year to all and see you next year.

Happy New Year Pete! We certainly BOTH missed a top days flying on the Orme by all reports on New Years Eve, (40mph SW with sun!) - but you didn't miss too much yesterday on the Cloud, other than the banter of course! The flying was delayed until 13:00 by rain and then the wind although great in strength was just off song with a little more North in it than true North East. Still, fun was had by all and we achieved the goal of PSS flight on NYD.

In an attempt to focus on anything other than work starting first thing tomorrow - I've just created this montage using all of the PSSA group photos taken throughout our 30th Anniversary season - sadly we didn't achieve a group shot at the Orme in October but this single edit now covers our events between April and September 2016, including the A-4 Mass Build.

Credit for 2 of these photos goes to Shona Meade (as I'm in the lineup!)

Happy memories from a busy season - many thanks to all who attended - and kudos to anyone who appears in ALL of the event photos!

Super photo with the rays of light down onto the sea Dave!

Chris must be thinking 'I found heaven' or 'Let in the Sun'.

I'm very tempted to edit in a model silhouette to complete the image btw...

Oh, If anyone wants a full copy of any of my pics, just send me a p.m. stating NYE or NYD and then the picture number (imagine they have numbers and 1 is the top one!) Or just hover over the pic and give the DSC number!

Ok, I don't know why, only live 5 mins away, but didn't go to the cloud on the day they flew. I'm not really into gliders or PSS stuff, don't know why it doesn't spark my interest. Why? Strange.

I should have gone, but although said I was going to go, preferred to stay and finish a power model off.
Chris needs to encourage me more in PSS or gliders. I have flown gliders before, but maybe it's been there, done that got the T-Shirt...

Maybe my New Year's Resolution - fly a glider again the first time in 20 years.

Weird - I gave up powered stuff about 25 years ago. Got bored of oily smelly stuff and cheating with a fan on the front laugh
