Super Sunday and the Great Fir Cup

Evening all, what a nice day’s flying we’ve had today. We started slightly later than ideal after a certain person who shall remain nameless drank from the Great Fir Cup and then had to call all hands for some time to convert the macrame back into launch cable. But hey, it can happen to anyone, even the CFI…(oops!) The time was not lost though as recent recruits (well, both since I went off on my summer overseas jaunting) Justin and Tony amongst others learnt their way around the half-mil map along with some basics on navigation. And indeed once we launched, Justin’s soaring skills meant we were able to test his navigational learning with a trip partway to Membury…and…squeak..back again. Most of the showers missed us, all pilots present flew until they were flown out and then we popped them back in the hangar and pootled home. Result!
