Well we had the pitch inspection at Woodspring MAC last night and I'm afraid the news is not good.
The runway area is ok for flying, but the area we use for parking is totally waterlogged, as you are
aware the site is surrounded by rhynnes for drainage but as these are 3/4 full there is nowhere for the
field to drain away.
We did toy with idea of park & fly, parking in a local car park and using mini buses to ship pilots and machines
to site, but think we have left it a bit late for this year.
There were over 100 vehicles last year and we were expecting more for this years event, we could perhaps park
say 30 cars in the drive, but the last we wanted was to turn people away because we were full.
So sadly we will have to cancel the South West Heli Fly-In for this year, but be afraid, cos we will be back next year
even bigger & better.
