Leek & Moorlands scale bash

Post by Cliff Evans »

The weekend of the 14/15th August for the Leek & Moorlands Annual Scale Do.
Obviously, pending COVID restrictions, hopefully, by August we will be in the clear.
The usual format and banter, will update closer to the event.

The weather looks perfect for both days, Sunday being the actual competition day.

With SW winds this means the preferred Pond Slope which has the large landing area.

For anyone who has not attended before and needs directions, enter Blake Mere Leek into Google Earth, Google Earth Maps, this is bang on the slope.

For any more info I can be contacted on :- 07903220420 or email peter.jervis4@gmail.com

A great weekend. Good flying, lots of pals and shedloads of banter. I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Thanks once again to Ant and the L&M club.

Seconded!

A beautiful venue and friendly folk. Great to catch up with so many old acquaintances.

And thanks to everyone’s athletic efforts to get my DG airborne! We got there in the end. :D highlights for me were getting to fly Brian’s lovely Pilatus, and watching the near half scale Ka6 slide into a perfect landing. Truly majestic.

Many thanks to Ant and the LMMGA for making the weekend happen.

Well…. managed to get two days flying in. although late afternoon on Saturday was left to those with sustainers, said in a very quiet voice, lol.
Good turnouts for both days saw many hours of flying with no major misshaps, and a very varied class of glider ranging from Brian Sharps very scaled down, very cute MU 28, to John Macnamara’s Libelle, in orange livery and sporting an up&go which you would be forgiven in thinking it was a gas turbine when deployed, to Jeff Frances’ stunning 40% Ka6.

The spoils went to.
Best static. Brian Sharp Pilatus B4.
Best Landing. Roger Brown ASW 20CL
Best Scale Flight. Jeff Frances. Ka6.
