CLYWYD SCALE GLIDERFEST 2015

The well known weekend Scale Glider Rally, hosted by CLYWD SOARING ASSOCIATION in North Wales, is to be continued, but with a slight change from a 4 day event, to a 3 day event. Looking at past attendance figures not many fliers turned up on the Monday, due to obvious reasons. This years event is still in September, dates are as follows Friday 4th, Saturday 5th ,Sunday 6th . The format will remain unchanged, just come and enjoy some great soaring with like minded friends in the superb Welsh hills. Last year’s event was a great success, even though the weather was not very kind to us (shortage of wind) with 20 plus Scale models being present through out the weekend, don’t think about it, come and join us.
As usual the base for all activities over this long weekend will be the picturesque town of Llangollen, where good, reasonable priced accommodation is available, excellent pubs with meals and entertainment, also restaurants, if that is what you prefer. For information regarding accommodation etc you can access the local website .
For further information email:

Vic Steel or telephone 01516786920, mobile 07742727881.

Most of our club sites require very little or no walking to fly, simply rig and fly, ideal for us oldies and parking is not a problem. Proof of insurance will be required.

It is now a tradition to meet in the evenings and sample some good food together, It has been known for us to share a beer or two, if you so wish.
We hope you will take this opportunity to visit us in 2015 and you can be sure of a great welcome, you can come for as many days as you wish over the weekend and if you would like to extend your visit into a holiday, either before or after the event you can continue to use the club sites so long as you notify the above organizers. I have one request to make, will ALL FLYERS please book in at the Ponderosa Café at the top of the Horseshoe pass before proceeding to the flying sites.
The agenda for the weekend is available on the club’s web site.
