    WTF! Ilkley got the 'north and north-east' regional title. It's not even in the bleedin' north, it's more top of the midlands.

    The aware should have gone to Barnard Castle. Why on earth couldn't they have SEEN that?

    Well done GazB who ran in the Podium 5km yesterday, featured live on Facebook.... thought i spotted you but it cut out just as you were crossing the finish line!

    Was certainly an interesting night with the women's 5km road world record being beaten (but for some complicated reasons, road 5km times are not known as "world records" and i believe it will go down as an "unofficial worlds fastest time")

    Today's Droning- that one didn't last long did it? All the juicy posts that stuck the knife in seem to have been edited out. Rest in peace Today's droning.

    I was thinking of starting a "Yesterday's droning" thread to replace the one that was closed . . . but I decided that we didn't want people to continue droning on about that subject.

    I didn't see any posts other than those that are there. Poor Stolly hit a nerve for some of us. His drone videos are beautiful and answer the dreams of many of us as to what it must be like to fly. The sad thing is the negative impact of drones. As I mentioned in my posts, if one flys over my house (which they have occasionally done) is it innocent or someone looking to see what might be pinchable? Theres no way of knowing. It really unnerves me. Its a major privacy issue.

    I obviously disagree; to me my drone (which is really small and easily fits in my pocket) is just a really fantastic camera, a camera that flies and hovers. Photography is one of my big hobbies and the drone is just a fantastic addition to my existing cameras. As for scoping out people’s gardens, I doubt if I was a burglar I’d need a drone to do that as there’s so many easier ways. I think it’s the buzzing people don’t like, which is fair dues, and perhaps the fact that, like in so many things, a few dick heads give a hobby or interest a bad name

    Nobody minds at all the absolutely stunning drone photography employed to capture Danny MacGaskill descending Black Slabs on his mountain bike on Skye but, conversely, me doing my little drone shots, completely alone on top of a mountain at dawn, somehow means that the only replies bar one, to what I thought would be a great idea for a new thread on a dusty old mantle piece of a forum, were all negative

    I thought my original comment was fairly positive for me as a somewhat dour Yorkshireman. For what its worth I think your 2 later videos were even better. My late father always said you could see malham cove from the top of the slide in our local park, I do believe he was right if the sun was glinting off it, the slide has long gone.
