News - Major update
including a new Google map site guide.
As yet I have not replaced the original Java Version as I still have the interactive Wind icons to work on, which will hopefully be soon.
Site links and Weather maps updated.
P.S. Play Spot-the-Flyers. Check out Parlick, Winter Hill, Mam-Tor and High Hill
Site Link News - Minor link updates, including a refresh of the current weather maps.
News - Link Update, although links missing form the now
defunct NSG sitee.
On a personal note, I have had limited time to update the site due to work commitments, including a re-location to the US, but I will continue to provide link updates when I can. I just hope that I will get back to flying in the UK soon.

Improved JavaWeather Links - Weather link icons have been changed to show aditional historical and cloud cover information where available. Automatic update has been improved for off-line use.
Improved JavaWeather Links - The Wendy weather link icons have been changed to access the data direct from Wendy Windblows Web Site. Presently, Rods data is updated every hour (on the hour) and should provide a more reliable source of accurate weather data.
Site Guide Changes - After careful consideration, the Site Guide section has been converted into a Link page, as opposed to hosting the site data. In this way, the maintance of the data is returned to the negotiating clubs, and as a result should be more up-to-date, and accurate.
