For those of you that are thinking of coming up to Blackheath on Saturday please not that this is a hang glider site and if there are any hang gliders or para sailer's there please give them right of way, also the astro turf area is there setup area, so if they are there please keep it clear while they set up, after they have jumped off the cliff you probably wont see them again as they land els were. Having said that, if the wind is above 15knots then they probably wont be there anyway, so go for you life.

Check the shrubbery behind Rick and his Jart. The astro turf is about 10mt square.

Whatever it takes to keep warm to keep flying longer.!

" slopies "
I'm in with a good chance of winning this competition

So, would anyone recommend flying the big F3J/B gliders up there? The astroturf landing spot looks the goods.

Bec I think that being able to slow the big bird up will make it easy to land
not so for jart #2

It dosent cost anything to bring your plane up in the car, so make the call when you get there.
Steve- Your Jart should be ok for landing in the shrubbery, it makes a good arrester, it's not that bad. The astro turf has allot of little stones on it so bring a broom.
Rick and I hope to get there around 10.
