Coaching evening - This seasons XC - given by Carlo Borsattino

29 Oct 2015 - 19:30
29 Oct 2015 - 22:29

7.30 till 8 pm will be induction for new pilots.

8pm till it finishes - Carlo and XC ( exact topic to be finalised)

This has been a great year for XC for the Southern Club, from novice pilots getting their first taste of XC, the Southern Club winning the BCC through to the veteran pilots taking the Southern club to the top of the UK league. So what better way to end the season than a talk from one of the UKs top XC pilots who has logged some sensational 200K plus flights on a sports class wing.

As usual this will be at the Glynde Social club.

Last Thursday of the month will induction for new members from 7.30 till 8 and then a coaching evening.

I am aiming the evening for those pilots thinking of going XC for the first time or are relatively new to XC. (This is both fr CPs and Pilot rated).

We will be taking a look at some of the factors of planning a safe flight including weather conditions and airspace.

It will be at the Glynde Social club

RRC 5/6th september

At the moment looking like mainly NW over the weekend. Saturday looks like it will go N by lunchtime.

SO at the moment I am thinking Firle on Saturday and the Dyke on Sunday.
Also if we do Firle Sat then we will also be local for the SHGC bash.. ( and if its not flyable we can go help Simon with putting up the marquee).

For those new to the club who need to get an induction first them be there for 8.30 anyone else for the RRC 9am.

We will be working on ground handling in stronger winds on Saturday and also setting a couple of goals along the ridge to reach.

Phil is away this weekend so I will be running the RR club. Last week Phil was at a comp and I was at the BCC so no RR.

Will update nearer the time but as always your thoughts on the weather and the location are always good practice.
