After a run of good (for the time of year) flying days during the first half of the month things changed. Last Saturday no flying due to low cloud and only 8 flights on Sunday into the teeth of a nasty easterly. This Wednesday we didn’t fair much better. The winch was in position and gliders out of the hangar by the time I arrived but they stayed there for a while due to the low cloud base. Fortunately not too low to hold back Ken H and Rowland P continuing the re-roofing of the toilet block.
With flying delayed we set to breaking up the part of the workshop floor that had sunk – breaking up concrete kept us occupied until some breaks in the cloud appeared.
We did get to fly but after Stan O had to abandon his launch (3rd one of the day) at 450′ we waited and waited and then knocked it on the head. Needless to say once I was home the sky looked clear.
