Weldon Spring 2016

4 years since I first came over, am planning on making it over again.

Is anyone going from anywhere else in the world? Trying to work out dates. Have been thinking end of April, through beginning may due to weaselfest and Poway DLG comp being on during that time

Looking forward to a good turnout this year! I think we'll have team Switzerland and team Germany coming too. Maybe they can chime in on dates... we need to talk with team Australia and get them on board!! Wouldn't be too far for team Japan either... Team UK? Where are you guys??

Ya, let's try to keep the dates inside April, and go from there.

It's usually around Easter week for Team Switzerland which is March 27th next year. Wind is more consistent in late April/May IIRC.

Get here when you can but make sure you don't leave until 2 days after Marcus, Sandro, and Eveline leave ;o) It always blows like crazy!

Team UK. LOL
I would love to do it, but next year is too soon. I need to get to south africa next year to see the family, And that is going to break the bank.
But 2017 is not out of the question.

The other lads have discussed it, but I would be surprised if any of them do it. Steve Forbes and Jonathan Wells will be the ones I think would do it.

Will,

You'd better take a DS plane with you to SA... Paul Usswald has been pioneering the DS scene there! Think he's made a few laps with his K100 already...

Where the heck does he fly up there? They don't get much wind and mountains are like 400km away!! I know of one potential site down in the Freestate, but never had the opportunity to go check it out. I did manage to do some DS in Mpumalanga at Hendriksdal, but you're never gonna set any records there. There was enough kick at the one spot, the second was too small. Not enough wind at either one though.

Don't write SA off just yet! I don't know exactly where but I think he found a spot with winds averaging 140km/h! ;o)

Wanting to book my tickets this week as they are $400 discounted each way currently.

BUT they are only discounted either side of 10 April-1 May.

So am trying to work out when others will be around. No point me booking tickets to find no-one to fly with
