27/04/16 Rich Harding - Rocked up at 10:45, as it was due to overdevelop big-style, to find Mike H on take-off and Wes already over the back. Laid out, clipped in, took off, skied out, got a bit low at Westonbirt but found a save and then took a glide to the Chippenham junction of the M4, as I had big stuff and rain in sight in every direction.
18/06/15 Garry Hume - Evening float after work. Pretty rough low down and off to the west, headed for Frocester as soon as I had height with O&R to Cam Long Down. Best height 1,400 ato. Close to landing out a few times as the lift became much lighter later on.
30/04/15 Garry Hume - Evening flutter. Just managed to scrap over the ridge at the gliding club. Despite weak sun some very sporty blobs of lift coming through. Wind continued to veer to the north - thermals were tracking almost parallel to the hill at times. Scraped back from 900' ato, south of Frocester TO top land just before it switched off completely. Earlier much better conditions - but I was at work - curses!
10/07/14 Alec Linton - Gusty winds and punchy thermals made taking off, soaring and thermaling difficult. May have got easier if I'd got higher but kept losing lift at about 1500ft. Settled for a trip to Frocester.
21/06/14 Martin Cowley - A very sweaty day, with Wayne and Graham the only ones to leave the hill, apart from Alan and Jonny who went to the pub. Pollen count: medium. Bovine excrement level: 1/25 cover; increasing slowly; fresh.
