The good bits – lots of launches, not a westerly, lots of cake. The bad bits – bugger all lift. If only Thursday had come a day early.
Bob B started things off on a hopeful note with 13 minutes in the K8. After that it was all single digit flight times with 3 notable exceptions. Bob with David N crept into double digits (10 minutes) but that was after Bob finding several boxes to tick on David’s progress card in the spinning section. Stan O squeezed 11 minutes in the K8 but undisputed soaring king for the day was Trevor G with 25 minutes in the Vega. Selam rigged his ASW15 and declared himself content with just doing circuits (like the rest of us).
It appeared the Tony P had been inspired by the return of The Great British Bake Off treating us to banana bread and Victoria sponge. Adrian N lined up a chocolate swiss roll. With 40 launches it at least was a good day for the club’s coffers.
