You should have been there – glorious mid-July thermals – actually that’s what we were wearing against the cold howling drizzle that persisted all morning.
At 1pm when the only people there were the Peg-fest crowd and the Puch CofAers (too few to run the field) we scrubbed the day which resulted in an immediate clearance, sunshine and probably some nice thermals we could have gone soaring in.
By then however we’d made good use of the day and done some xc prep, some trace analysis from the previous days flights, map study etc etc – and made friends with pilots from other clubs who say they will be back. So, a useful day – but flying would have been better!
