Barry had the longest flight of the day with 2 hours and Robin gets a mention in dispatches for managing to keep the twin Astir airborne for 16 minutes in the weak thermals. Flying went well on into the evening with the last flight taking place after 7.30 pm, a total of 29 flights. A long day with lots of smiling faces but mixed soaring fortunes.
A huge thank you to Mike Slogget for all his support and to the North Hill chaps for supporting us even though the onsite catering was lacking in meat pies CFI Mark valiantly stayed on to the end. As always a big thanks to all the Winch drivers and most of all to Heather for driving the retrieve all day, where would we be without you Heather?
