Members were a little thin on the ground to take advantage of what turned out to be a very pleasant, soarable day.
One of our newest 'addicts', Mike Keller (a one-time Royal Marines helicopter pilot), was the only ab initio student on-site, and thus got more than his fair share of briefings and training flights - achieving his first successful glider landing, and going away happy.
The arrival of Christine , returning after a recent trial lesson, plus a large family group from Newquay and a party of Scouts from Bristol kept the flying list ticking along
Meanwhile CFI Don Puttock was kept busy assessing potential Basic Instructor candidates (and in the process exploring some of the local ridges) using his Motorfalke.
Thanks to all of those club members who did turn up to fly - and to help others to fly. And to those who, joined by Mike Jardine, stayed on in the evening to fly the Scouts.
