Flying report 29/2/16

Apologies to all those who had made other arrangements for today and could not make it down to the club, but in view of the forecast it seemed the sensible thing to do.

We had another good day although we did not get the thermal strength we had last Wednesday but I think that was exceptional. It was cold first thing and did not seem to get much better as the day went on even though the wind was in the South. We did have sunshine all morning and for some time after lunch but it then clouded over making it seem even colder.

We were a little light on members first thing because it was such short notice but eventually about 15 members turned up. There were some extended flights and we all had a great time and everyone flew who wanted to. Allan was kept busy all day (as usual) and we had no problems. We were able to operate from outside the clubhouse and use 2 cables all day.

Lets hope that the rain that is coming in will not spoil the field which is (or was) drying so well. Thanks to everyone who turned up and worked so hard to give us another good day.

Well winter is now officially over so roll on some nice, warm, sunny and thermic days !!!
