Saturday 1st October

With Saturday being a reasonable day sandwiched between very wet days (and the weekend being declared a 1 day weekend) we’d expected a good turnout. We did have a strong turnout of TL’s but a modest one of club members. Low cloudbase limited flight times with Paul Prentice taking the honours of longest and second longest flights (10 and 11 minutes). A record held until after 15:00 when Steve Barber jumped in the K8 after his marathon session on the winch and he soared away for a whole 17 minutes. No one else was able to crack the 10 minute barrier. 30 launches in total with TL’s accounting for a dozen of those and annual checks for another 7.
