On arrival at the club at 08:30 I saw Mike Bennett already at work cutting grass near the gate. Would more members turn up? By 09:30 there was 6 of us at the club, 1st job, change ends in anticipation of flying.
Next list of jobs to tackle, Grass cutting, a job that seems never ending now our farmer no longer has sheep and at this time of year it is growing so fast. Someone to drive the tractor and grass cutter, step forward fellow instructor Peter Howarth.

So, did we fly? The cloud base had lifted and at lunch time Callum Doyle arrived and while we were enjoying our lunch we decided to get one glider out and go flying for the afternoon.
