As was this Instructor who, with wind and runway direction in unusual alignment, delighted in 'inflicting' launch failures on the unwary (well done Paula..!)
And there were all sorts of trainees as well, including newly joined 15 year old Amelia Johnson, her Dad Rich taking his first taste of soaring flight, 13 year old Elliot Acton (and Dad Chris) and Theatre Royal manager Ed Borlase.
So with Peter Howarth, Richard Roberts, Roger Appleboom and Martin Broadway making up the all-sorts team of winch drivers, the question had to be: who got the pink jelly one that goes down a treat, and who got the black and white hard striped one that takes ages to swallow? Well the 'pink jelly' award has to go to Roger Green, for showing us all how it's down (if you own an ASW-20) whilst the black and white one probably goes to Heather Horsewill, who not only drove the retrieve up and down the airfield at least 23 times, but also had to put with 'all sorts' of humour from the motley crew of winch drivers she met down the other end..!
And continuing the sweetie theme, 'Good Boy' choc drop award if the day has to go to Peter Howarth, who not only flew our visitor Andrew Lawton, but also flew the entire Bardon group Caroline Brown, Rachel Challenor, David Jones and Jayne Marsh) whilst sneaking in flight times of 14 and 18 mins to boot! They were last seen tucking into an enormous barbecue outside the clubhouse.
So all sorts of flying for all sorts of people - that's gliding!
