Dartmoor Gliding News-Friday 22nd July 2016

Today was a day of two halves.

Hazel Butland, who is a lay preacher at Brentor (St Michael de Rupe) Church,
flew on a 2 Flight Voucher with us.
With HXP being the only K-13 available, there was no option but to devote it to our visitors (see photos) for the first half of the day, then chopping to club members later in the afternoon. Fortunately, due to there being only a ‘slack handful’ of them (most needing only check flights), this worked quite well, and was assisted by Ged Nevisky putting his Twin Astir to use.

Jean Proctor, on holiday with her son at Port Isaac,
thought she was on her way to Padstow when she arrived for a flight at Brentor..!
Rosemary Allchin, from Torquay, flew with Instructor Martin Cropper.
We also welcomed a return visit by Seahawk GC’s trainee instructor Steve Moore, who was keen to get in some winch training (including the inevitable ‘break’).

A good day in which we flew 24 launches.
