Wednesday Arvo's Sydney Slope Combat

Is anyone interested in getting together regularly on Thursday afternoons for some slope combat. I'm allowed out on Thursday nights and usually bring a plane or two to work for some fun after a day at the office.

I was thinking Eastern suburbs so probably Marks Park or somewhere similar, though we should be a bit flexible with this. Most people knock off anytime after 4 o'clock so we could post a venue on here during the day, depending on prevailing conditions, then people just turn up when they can.

Flying is great fun, flying with others is even better, but trying to knock each other out of the sky is awesome!

Get your foamy wings in order and let me know what you all think.

Count me in. I'll ask a couple of the locals I fly with if they wanna come too. I'm almost certain they will. Should be fun.

I think we should by some RC submarines and combat them! Bloody rain.

Anyway looks like we have a few starters this week (Zipper we'll let you off this once). Pass the word around to see if we can find some more.

I guess on Weds or even Thurs we'll make a decision as to venue.

Hey Mavrick
whats good for a 20-30knot straight S? Thinking Otford if it looks like swinging around, or Woolaware Rd = perfect for Sw-S

Is there enough room at Woolooware road for combat?

Any other suggestions for a South/South West direction?

Of course that is if all of the slopes in Sydney haven't been WASHED AWAY!!!

Is everyone going to check in here tomorrow?

Though, i suspect that the rain will mean no flying anyway.

The small concrete slope at the end of the La Pa loop road in front of the metal railing is great on a SW. Best for small slopers though.

Well guys it's currently pi##ing down and looking at the radar it's going to be on and off for the rest of tonight at least.

I think we'll pull the plug on it tonight. Keep checking back as we will aim to get this happening again next thursday.

Guess I'll have to go to HStore tonight and spend some cash to console myself.
