Saturday 4th March

Well the call for an early start on Facebook and the text messages that were sent out ensued we got the first launch underway by 9:30. Thanks to everyone who made it happen!

Unfortunately the weather, a slight mechanical issue and the deteriorating condition of the airfield finally curtailed flying early in the afternoon but not before we racked up some 24 or so launches.

With 3 two seaters  and back seat help from Bob and Richard check flights and annual checks were the order of the day, from memory only one flight managed to break the cycle of circuits. Nick and I latched onto some scrappy lift and managed to take EUF up to 2,800ft (cloudbase)  during  a flight that lasted 36 mins, well done Nick!
