Home ┬╗ Easter Saturday

A good turn out from the members today, RASP promised good things so Laurent, Dominic, Rob Hanks, Mark Sanders, d’Arcy, John Randall and Mike Greenwood rigged their respective machines and launched to the South with the ridge working well.┬áThe sky to the West was a combination of ridge lift with some good thermals to +5 but suppressed by wave, certainly the sky looked better to the North and East.

The K23 and Discus spent the day being flown by members, Neal flew myself, Jared and Martin Sloan in the K13 whilst Walter took care of the Air Experience flights.

The K6 Mob, Peter Turner, Steve Male and Nigel Holmes brought their gliders back on site, Peter and Steve rigged their E and took it up the wire to blow the dust off.

John O’Reilly and Den did a great job keeping the launch point in order and thanks to Dave Brown in the winch along with Fay and Jane keeping us all fed.

Nothing posted on the Ladder yet but hopefully those brave enough to venture on XC made it back safely.
