time for the mystery guest round

 Can you guess who visited the mighty Thurnham on Saturday?
Here are some clues to help you....

he's used to bigger hills....

and prefered to use cr brakes for landing

it all ended well though

this shot makes it too easy

and our mystery guest is....

......Mr J P !
give yourself 10 slope soaring i-spy points if you guessed correctly

blue bell

started off lovely....then it was down hill all the way

beware- the mighty bush!

no mates

A lovely summer evening and some lonely flying on Wye Downs....

 the beauty of nature to keep one company....

 and a bloke who's out running

 just in case you need to check the wind direction

and then all of a sudden the sky was heaving with 67 avid fliers!

oh to be in England in the summer time with my love!

Holly Hill Havock

Cheers Liz for giving us the day off! Amazingly we also get a southerly air stream across the south east of England, so it's up to Holly early enough to make the most of the lift before the afternoon rain sets in.

An ex-Alan model returns to the hallowed turf, but in the ownership
of Martin this time round

Jason's lovely Algebra

away she goes

first tree climb of the day

 a happy crowd

Lee's lovely Alex

Jason preps the Fish


just for the record; it might have been Alan's model, but it wasn't his piloting

Ray's retrieve

A bit of ear hole humping to relieve the stress of a lost model

found it!....but we're going to need a bigger stick!

sling shot method no.1...fail!

sling shot method no.2.....fail!
time to call the tree surgeon
