Sunday 7th

All I can say is thank goodness for Andy Murray and Peter E.  Without Peter E we wouldn’t have been able to fly everyone who needed the services of an instructor and without the big tennis match we might have been even busier.  In the first couple of hours only the patient and determined (and maybe a little bit lucky) achieved more than a circuit.  Having a hot ship (such as, say, a nicely polished LS7) didn’t help.
Over the day about a third of the launches enjoyed a soaring flight with Rod H & Paul P taking longest flight honours in EUF of over 4 hours.  Half a dozen folks enjoyed their first taste of gliding.  Selvan converted to the K8 and Alan H got his silver distance in the club Vega with a trip to Bicester.
Many thanks to the few members who went above and beyond to get the toys out, kept us flying and put the toys away (oh, and fix the lights on the Vega trailer before heading off on an unexpected retrieve).
