Dartmoor Gliding News-Saturday 30th July 2016

The forecast was suggesting a training sort of a day. Overcast early, giving way to some sunny periods later all with light breezes from the NW. That was just about what we got. There a period of soarable conditions in the mid afternoon to spice things up a little.

The day got off to a relatively early start as instructor Gordon Dennis played truant from his home duties to ensure some extra flying to the members of this weeks course who had the worst of the weather and only managed 2 flying days out of 5. Thanks Gordon. Your efforts are appreciated.

We welcomed 4 visitors today. Alan North, Alan Brice and Christopher Brockway  all had Introductory Flight vouchers and IFP Mike Jardine's niece Alex Sykes. Everyone flew and left with smiles on their faces
