Dartmoor Gliding News-Wednesday 18th October 2017

Not the greatest of days weather wise with low cloud and a southerly breeze but the Wednesday regulars turned up optimistic as ever.

The "new" Zetor arrives
Colin and the sorcerers apprentice continued to work their magic on the K8 whilst Phil got up close and personal with our newly painted red Zetor tractor. Phil quickly appraised himself of the controls and was solo within no time at all.

Trying it for size Phil?
The sun put in a brief appearance and so we rigged the open cirrus just in time to see the sun go and the cloud base descend to about 600 feet! Not deterred we set up the field and sat at the launch point waiting for things to improve which they eventually did allowing some flying to take place.

Huge thanks from me to Phil Hardwick, Martin Broadway, Bob sansom, Peter Harvey and Allen Holland for launching me. Finally a plea for more members to turn up on Wednesdays please!
