Just had a look at the prediction on Windy, at least it looks calmer than Friday??? Out of curiosity, if the weather doesn't improve is there a plan B for when it will be held or is it just cancelled with the next one so soon after?

I'm guessing this.
Also, my memory aint so great but I think two of the last three October meets got cancelled due to being too dry and or too windy.

Certainly a fun time of year for weather, looks like a couple of lows heading past over the weekend with calmer conditions Sunday/Monday. Fingers crossed they speed up and things fine up for Saturday.

Unfortunately the weather conditions are not predicted to improve for this weekends proposed launch.
Regrettably, the launch has been cancelled.

The final launch has been scheduled to be held at Grass Valley on Sunday 8th October.
