To be honest the forecast wasn’t exactly encouraging but being a keen and enthusiastic bunch, five of us turned up at East Lomond car park ready to give it a go. In light of the weather forecast most had brought along a DLG just in case. The prediction was for ssw swinging quickly south and then east but we were lucky in that it held pretty much south and straight onto the slope just off the track to the left up to the main slope before the stile.
We set up the course with the right base next to the fence and the left base just shy of 90 metres away to the east which worked fine.

We had a DLG fly at lunchtime which was fun before we got back to the real stuff about 2 o'clock. Not before one of our number lined up his DLG for a hand catch and flew straight into himself!

|One more from Sam. Cyril maybe?|
I was quite happy with the way my Cyril performed but must press on with fixing my poor Precision.
