John launched in JK and was photographed by a keen Mountain biker on the Torlesse range (See pics include one of photographer Richard biking down the Torlesse hill) Paul and visitor Lee tried to soar the west of Castle hill Peak and ended landing at Castle Hill Station.
Thanks to Neil Alison who took a crew to retrieve them, including David Harrison and Chris. Greg (CC) and Grant(TC) had great soaring flights watching over the retrieve. Jono had quick flight in PB. Thanks to Colin for towing and to Paul for instructing and for shouting a beer or two.

Peter also took Martin Brill for a flight, who is returning to gliding after a long break. Rick Millane had one flight with John Goddard and quick solo flight too.
