Hermanus slope weekend update from Ross Leighton

It’s that time of the year again and we have about 6 weeks to go until the slope soaring event of the year – the AFC Hermanus R/C Slope Fly In 2005. This years’ event will be held as usual on the last weekend of November (26/27th) at the car park next to the Vodacom Tower on the Hermanus Hill. The road to the tower is called Rotary Way. You turn left off the main Hermanus road, just before the Spar Shopping centre, through a set of white gateposts. Flying starts 09h00 and ends 17h00 Saturday and 09h00 until 15h00 on Sunday.

As usual there will be two flight lines, one for scale, moulded and built up gliders and one for combat and special events. We will be giving pylon racing a go this year and there will be several classes to cater for all types of slopies. Should be fun and we’ll see who is the real “King of the Hill”. As usual there will be prizes galore and of course the popular spot landing competition.

Safety is well taken care of with our usual Tx control caravan, air bosses and frequency board. Overall safety is in the capable hands of Bobby Purnell.

There will be the usual Saturday evening braai at the Hermanus Cricket Club, starting at 19h00. Order you braai pack when you register.

Register online at http://www.atlanticfc.org.za/ under the Hermanus 2005 section. You have to click on the register button and you will be taken to a new site where all you do is enter your SAMAA number.

Hope to see many of you there but book early because as usual numbers attending are limited to 120 pilots.
