Dartmoor Gliding News-Saturday 14th December 2019

The airfield is very wet and, with the strong, gusty winds, it was decided that we would not fly even though the wind was forecast to calm down in the afternoon.

"It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good" or so the saying would have you believe. Well today's ill wind provided plenty of good as it ensured that there was a large number of helpers to dig the holes and set out the bases for the containers that are due to arrive later this week as part of the "Winch Garage Project".

Digging holes in seemingly random places
The real boss today was the laser level
looking a bit like a three legged extra terrestrial
Most of the gang
There was a surprising amount of work in this task to get the bases in the exact position at the correct levels. At times it almost looked like we knew what we were doing with pickaxes and shovles flying and the laser level beeping it's approval.

Thank you everyone for the help and patience.
