Saturday 7th August

Only 4 members turned up but we still had an enjoyable day. Not a day for that big XC with cloudbase not much more than 2,000′ all day but soaring to be had. We only huddled in the caravan a couple of times waiting for light showers to passed through (presented the opportunity for a nap for 1 person – no names…). Fortunately we were joined by a visitor from Heron (Paul Ginter who pops in periodically) and a TL. Richard G made an appearance to fill in holes in the hangar and had his arm twisted to take a flight. Chris B had his first sample of the Vega and took longest flight of the day honours with 26 minutes. A little later we had a cable, Puchacz and no one wanting to do the necessary. So, I felt obliged as DI to take a pop at Chris’s “record”. 40 minutes later pointed proved and enough money spent (have to admit it was very nearly only a short circuit).
