Microaces is Making History, for their main page or

Excellent session at Old Warden yesterday, hot but the wind was in a sensible direction for free flight and reasonably light.

Seems I was wrong in my 12th of July comment, no picnic tables on the concrete and the tethered cars had their pylon in place and were adding to the general interest.

20th July
Another busy weekend, with the East Anglian Gala at Sculthorpe and Scale Weekend at Old Warden. For further details see Meetings/Events on the left.

I may be a bit late with this but the web site of the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden seems to have had a massive update. Click the icon to see.

John says
"Thanks to Tony's assistance, here is the up to date spreadsheet after Round Four of the club championship. Members will notice that some contests are already settled (sorry, Chris, but this is war) while others will have to wait until the final round on September 11th. The Bernie Nichols Trophy was won by Mick Page by a distance"

16th July
Thanks to Mick for the latest set of front page photographs, these from this years Free Flight Nationals.

A reminder of last weeks reminder from John:-
"It is the fourth round of the club f/f contest on Tuesday 17th beginning at 3.30 pm and containing the final round of the Bernie Nichols trophy. Then comes the Scale weekend at Old Warden, with the Masefied trophy and Earl Stahl event on the Sunday. (Although I know that some of you will be at the East Anglian Gala on that day).

14th July
The 2018 F3K European Championship has been going on this past week in Martin, Slovakia.

I was curious about the accuracy of these free stats programs,
so started them both on 29th May 2015 and will see if the results coincide.

ClustrMaps was first set up in October 2012, in March 2015 their
system stopped working but if you click the icon you will see the
results for that two and a half year period.
