Weekend Roundup Aug 5-6

*Report by John McCaw*


Good Evening,
Here is a quick update on the last weekends activity.
Saturday proved to be a non flying day. Alex gave a lecture on flying in thermals, to Beni, Solomon and Tim which will be beneficial to them moving towards Spring.
Sunday was a clear day after the fog cleared.
Terry arrived with PB and it was rigged and ready for the final sign off. A great achievement by all those involved.
Tim Duggan had the towing duties with John taking a keen young man for a trial flight in OR.
Dana and John had a lovely One hour 15 min flight in to wave to 9400ft and a quick trip to the Craigieburn wave and return.
Greg had CC out and had an   enjoyable  I hour 35 min flight in light wave to 6000ft.
Luca and John spent 2hours in wave and convergence, ticking off much of the Solo flight training syllabus.
Nigel Maxey dusted off UZ and had a nice evening flight along the Springfield ridge.
Thanks to Tim for towing, and to Fabian for carrying out the duty pilot tasks. John was tired after 4 hours in the back of the twin, but another great day at Springfield.

Reminder for the AGM this Thursday 10 th August 7pm, at The Old Stone House, 30 Shalamar Drive, Cracroft
