15/11/2010 Nantymoel
Arrived early afternoon, little light and off the hill slightly. Decided to do some ground handling, got the wing out and ground handled for a bit, the wind came slightly on the hill so decided to scratch and if anything practice slope landings, took off couple of slope landings later the wind picked up just enough to get some hight, managed to get a good
Bit of lift and fly around about a quarter of an hour. Top landed and ground handled for about an hour then decided to do a top to bottom to finish the day off, all in all very good afternoon ground handling and scratching

14/11/2010 Rhossilli 9-12 mph wnw
Arrived at about 11:45 stu kelly, gerry and a few others. The wind wasn't up to much at first so decided to practice some top landings from the top of the hill down to the pimple, bit of ground handling and the wind picks up enough to do some scratching. Managed to scratch around fine zither 2 top landings. Nasher viv and nick rock up, I lost my height thought I was going down ... Was about half way down the hill, managed to scratch my way back up really tight to the hill and got a good bit of height concidering the wind being light. Another top landing, had a chat with Nasher then had to make a move back to work. One final take off with a 10 min flight finally landing on the pimple to pack up. All in all a good day, managed to carry out some of the tips Nasher and a few others have been giving, thanks lads,  brilliant couple of hours, can't wait for the next flyable day 

24th October 2010 Rhiw Wen NNE.
 
Arrived at Rhiw Wen with Stu Kelly after visiting Rhigos for a look, conditions were a little strong and were quite a lot or Polish pilots doing some crazy Acro fun to watch. Decided with Gerry and Stu to head to Rhiw Wen , conditions were light so some scratching and top to bottoms until finally the wind did pick up, managed to get some height and have a good flight for around half an hour. Late afternoon a massive shower cloud could be seen over Llandovery and was heading straight towards us. Landed and walked back to the car for the rain and Hail to come in. All in all a good day, had a few flying tips from the guys on the ground which I am looking forward to trying out. Cheers lads all in all a great day.

28th Sept. Cwm afan. Ozone Element
Arrived around half Nine, wind was around 10mph bang on the hill, Took of and the wind dropped so a top to bottom was my plan, my plan didn't go as expected, soft landing the into the Furness, managed to get back to the top wind was slightly stronger, took off and scratched around for around 30 minuets all in all 3 top landings and 1 slope landing as I didn't want to venture out to far. Greeted By Steve J who was going to get his kit I took off and literally got pinned back straight away, Landed straight away as the wind picked up and was to strong to fly. At this point Norris turned up followed by Wattsy, Gerry and Stevie G. Rain came in I decided to leave the guys stayed hoping to get some flying in later on.
