Due to the success of the last Bore Chasers event, there will be a limit of 100 pilots for this one. If you want a place then YOU MUST RSVP please.
As a well known 80's artist once said, "if your names not down, your not coming in"
If you have not been to this one before, I am sure that all who have will agree that it's not one to be missed!
The location of the take off field is just perfect for following the tides that will be passing though over the weekend.
We will have Nigel, (our normal PMC food) back again with Curries, Fajitas, and stuff. I am yet to have a bad thing said about his food. (other than it running out) we will of course have the normal bar facilities as well.
Camping for Tents, caravans and motorhomes is FREE.
Limited family / holiday accommodation is available walking distance from the flying field. (ideal for those who would like a bit of luxury) Please contact Kathy Turner on 07970 771 039 for information, availability and pricing.
As always, FULL MEMBERS ENTRY IS FREE.
Non Paid members, £25 Please pay on arrival
Guests non flying, £5 Please pay on arrival.
The address is:
Milton End Farm, Arlingham, Gloucestershire, GL2 7JH.

Thanks guys. Engine failed due to extra thick winter clothing and neck warmer pushing into the electrics just behind my head and wire coming off switch. New AC machines have the switch at the side - I guess I now know why. I couldn't move initially as completely winded. I couldn't even talk to a helpful passer-by. He put everything away for me and I was taken off in an ambulance. Very lucky and I got off with just torn muscles between the ribs in my back. It feels just like broken ribs.
My paramotor frame now has a healthy leaning back angle. It hit the floor so hard the motor bent the top part of the frame down so the thrust is now a little more downward. Rather weirdly, this will help me as I can't stand up straight at launch!
Sorry to hear Andy.
Just proves to all of us 'not if it happens - it's when it happens'
I've had two so far, but luckily I was high enough to pick a good field.
After you're alright - hope the engine is OK
Hope you are OK Andy, that's a real bummer of a time for the engine to quit. I had one at about 50 feet but that was a non event.
That really is bad luck, assuming you ran the engine for a while beforehand to warm and check full power.
