Seriously...? Nobody wants to know what happened next?

Oh, go on then, you know you want to tell us.

Dunno...I can't remember :lol:

Open Slopes has been declared on this Sunday, although you'd need something floaty, efficient, or both...! I'm not aware that any of the scale events will be on, although, obviously, I'll let you know if this changes...

In the highly unlikely event that a decent forecast might on offer, the White Sheet Scale Fly-In in September 13th will take place as scheduled...

(I have to say that to keep the Weather Gods off their guard)

An excellent day at the 'Sheet yesterday...Of course, the forecast was much too good to be true, so there were periods when Mr Lift went off for an Old Person's nap, but that's the name of the game. Personally, I was well chuffed that the 5th scale version of the Minimoa proved to be agile and efficient enough to easily cope with the sometimes challenging conditions. As is the way with these things, there were periods of tremendous lift, so it was all about timing. Pat received the Wobbly Hat of Condolence for his masterful landing out, and Jonathan is owed a hat for going to retrieve it!
