Sat 6th December
It was a beautiful winters day to go gliding, the morning’s hard frost clearing to give blue skies and a gentle wind on the surface increased with height to give good high Shalbourne launches. So much so that the inevitable discussion about who had the longest flight broke out although there wasnt any lift around.

The frosty start also provided spirited launch point chatter, as I understand it this was the scene at Paul P’s house

and Chris K’s drive the the airfield was somewhat like this…

It was pretty nippy.

Lastly a big thanks for your understanding of my late arrival and early departure due to nursing duties.
