Al those little brushed can motors were so quiet we could hardly tell you were reliant on electric assist! Looked great in the air!!

I did try shutting the throttle a few times but it didn't seem to want to soar. Probably too heavy! Oh well I tried.

All,

As discussed in the PSSA WhatsApp group, we are looking at a get-together this weekend on either the Orme or the Cloud, Bosley.

Let's keep a weather-eye open, and make a decision for one day / both days nearer the end of this week. The wind is turning SW and quite strong, so looking OK other than some rain as well. We'll see!

We are GO for Sunday on the Orme (tank track SW) ladies and germs. Might be a little chilly, but the banter will be warm.
See you Slopeside 9am.

Having spent a few weeks performing what checks we reasonably can do to best ensure no event clashes or slope access issues, I'm glad to be able to announce a series of six weekend PSSA events for the 2019 season. My sincere thanks go to Tim Mackey, Steve Houghton (SWSA) and Austin Massey (LMAC) for their help and support in establishing these dates.

A reminder that all of our events are open to non-PSSA members - and that all pilots are to have BMFA insurance. As usual, there are more details on the PSSA website and Facebook pages. Roll on April!

I've had a message from Michael Kitchen of the NYMRSC with details of a one day PSS event to be held at Hole of Horcum on Sunday 14 July 2019.

"Please note that for non-NYMRSC members who want to fly, there will be a temporary membership fee of £5 which is valid for one month."

Yep, Michael has confirmed the details here too Al, and I've added them to the list of 2019 PSSA events on the website and on our FB page too...

In preparation for this weekend coming, I've realised I hadn't flown anything since before Xmas.

I went to the flying field this weekend and last to try and wake the old thumbs up.

I felt really out of practise so hopefully I can have a few hours flying this weekend. Come on wind, blow!

Have a great weekend gentlemen.
I will be with you in spirit and will see you at the Lleyn in June.
Hopefully I will get some time in between to stir the sticks before then.
Cheers and greasy landings to you all.

Will be with you all after lunch on Saturday as have to attend Granddaughter's birthday party between 11 and 1pm. It's in Ruthin if you want to go, but can't guarantee entry as it will obviously be ticket only.

Thanks for the best wishes Bob! The weekend forecast looks quite settled at present on the Easterly slope with good wind strengths for our PSS models - so its looking quite positive we'll get the 2019 season off to a good start!

Pete we will await your arrival up top! thumbs up
