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

But of course, all that can change in an instant
I may just do a bit of both days, rather than a whole day of just one....depends on Mrs Timbo's reaction.

even when they have "made their mind up" its no guarantee, as we know.
I am probably going to make an appearance Saturday - after lunch time, so woiuld be good if you can do the Saturday Kev - why not stay and have dinner with us all before you go back to prison
I may also get a bit of stick time in on Sunday...we will see how SWMBO is feeling

Thanks again for the Help.
Tell the story of that Voodoo, Kev as it looks darn good in flight.
Was it a total scratch build or do the plans still exist ?
Really nice to meet up with all, Must take a pss model to the next orme meet.
Tim working through your map details that have been posted , They are good, well done and thanks for the effort.

fubar i saw the voodoo fro sale on the pssa site collect from prestatyn near me,the guy who sold it told me he bought it from the local model shop ,he saw it hanging up liked it and had it hanging from the ceiling of his house he never flew it or was interested in flying ,it needs a good wind and flys a treat pretty darn quick to, dosent like to be slowed down at all bit mushy could do withe 2 sevos instead of 1 in the wind as it wont slow down for landing,yea mate enjoyed it but could only fly 1 model that was stuck in the tranny,hope to meet up at nxt pss meet cu

Just back home after a fantastic couple of days flying PSS up on the Lleyn Peninsula! We were blessed with flyable weather all day, each day, with 18-25mph winds throughout - Perfect! My thanks go to all who travelled to make the event a success, both on the slope and in the evening, where we celebrated Timbos birthday with a group of flyers and partners down at The Ship Inn in Llanbedrog!

A good group of pilots and models flying at 2 superb coastal sites in fine weather - you really cant ask for much more!
A full report with pictures and video to follow as we get it done, Im off to rest my suburnt head now the car is unloaded!!
