dicounted landing fees apply to those aircraft camping.. ON ON ON, chnaged to wolverhampton due to Enstone being too wet for camping. it wont be cold though 7 Feb
Blimey. its hard to get 2 consecutive flying days this year. One good day or part of one good day is not enough, this event is an evening event really, held over 2 days, we dont want people to fly in and get stranded.
Forecast is for warm rain! try again next week. see BMAA forum for XC weather chart
roger 30 Jan - sorry, postponed again until Feb, we are all waterloged in here, more rain forecast friday and strong winds saturday and rain on sunday. We understand that from mid Feb onward the cold snap will arrive that we are waiting for! 23 Jan
icicle postponed again, not my fault! crap weather forecast for the weekend and i am snowed in. try next week! 16 Jan
after much debate and hours spent looking at all the weather forecasts, Icicle postponed untl 26/27 Jan. Panic not!
Forecast is for 6 ins of snow on friday and low cloud on the sunday, so our frozen wings wont defrost unless we have some sun! there maybe be flyable parts of the weekend, but to expect people to fly in from all parts of the country into an airrfield under snow, with real risks of not getting out on sunday, means safety first.
still plenty of weekends ahead, we;ll get a good one - we normally do. we have to tell the pub in good time.. update 9 Jan
Having had a good look at the forecast, considering its still wet, mist and rain forcast for enstone on sat, and the overnight temp barely reaching zero, with some strong winds, we have decided to postpone the icicle until the 19/20 Jan. i have to let the pub and airfield know in good time
The weather is begining to settle down and get cold, so a nice weekend is just around the corner!
Sorry for those that mis out if this is your one weekend off, if it was the end of march i might call it on, but its still only second week of Jan and i am yet to use my deicer on the car!
keep the faith!!
update 2nd Jan - forecast for weekend 5/6 is very warm at 8 degrees and with many strips still waterlogged, event postponed until 12/13 Jan, lets see what the weather is doing then.
Roger This year we have agreed with Enstone flying club to have our annual flyin, camp and quiz in lovely oxfordshire. £5 to land and camp, normal landing fees if you are not hardy enough to camp. Evening quiz in the pub = 1st prize 1 years free subscription to FLYER magazine. You have to have the same answers as the quiz master, which may not always be correct! Many other valuable prizes to be won, trophies to hand out, mickey taking to be had.Icicle stickers available for campers only. No B&B or hotel accom or you'll be black balled from future events, we hope for the a famous -6C and snow if we are lucky. Great hospitality. It does not get much better than that in your summer tent. Icicle 2013, in the 7th year, had 45 aircraft and 60 campers last year. great fun with a quiz and prizes, and you get to camp out in the freezing sub zero temperatures. What else is there to do at this time of the year?? Quiz, prizes, food, drink, warm clubhouse, Walk to the local pub for evening food and quiz, Enstone has a bar and will lay on breakfast at a cost. Meet old friends, make new ones. Non radio is OK, just PPR the tower first by phone. Roger Cornwell 07739 670585 email@example.com
The date rolls over to subsequent weekends until the right weather, cold, crisp, good vis, arrives. Be flexible!
The Crown INN will feed us on saturday night
