BCC Round Shropshire 18/19

Sounds like it was a very succesful BCC round in Shropshire 18/19 April.

Any reports on how it went for the SHGC team (other than what's already been posted in the flight diaries)?

Best wishes

Shropshire BCC this weekend

When is anyone travelling? It's beginning to look as if Saturday might be a bit windy until late afternoon. I'm not sure whether to drive up Friday night, or Saturday morning...

Shropshire and car sharing

Hi Charlie

I'd love to come along as well. Like Andrew and others I don't mind just being there to fly independently.

Are people driving down on Friday noght or Saturday? I live in Woking but would love to get a lift (sharing costs etc.) and happy to come up to London.

See you all soon.


BCC Round Shropshire 18/19

I'm keen to come, but will be happy to be a non-scoring (wind) dummy. Coming from south-west London with van, can take several people and/or gear.

I seem to remember that you did rather well at Bell Hill BCC last year.

Are we sending our big guns? and will Dave M upset the local gliding club?

Big Guns

It's handicapped so ideally our team will consist of CP rated pilots flying DHV 1/2 wings a long way !
ie. if you are AP rated flying a DHV2/3 then you will only score 64% of your distance.

And yes, I'm sure Dave will manage to upset some narrow-minded, local wannabe sky-god with a big chip on his shoulder about non-locals flying further than his club members. Again. But no, not the local gliding club.
