Arrived on the airfield to find a Cirrus in the process of being rigged and cables being towed out. Rubbed my eyes and checked my diary – yes it’s a Wednesday in mid November. WOW!
There followed a fine day with a gentle SW wind, promising little in the way of soaring, but that permitted everyone to practice flying wide leisurely circuits. So I was pleased to observe some very tidy flying. Chris K and Rob J vied to outsoar one another in the Cirrus which resulted in a couple of gravity defying half hour flights, while the rest of us flew circuits. Paul Bryant distinguished himself by not only completing his Annual Checks, but also converting to the Vega, only struggling slightly with the principle that number of landings should not exceed the number of launches.
The afternoon shift arrived on cue shortly after midday which kept us launching until sunset when misting stopped play. Hon. Treasurer left the airfield smiling as we managed almost 30 launches in a fairly short day.
