Dartmoor Gliding News-Wednesday 24th November 2021

Following a recent notice on the DGS forum that the vehicles have been found low on fuel, we were visited today by the local constabulary. After talking things over we were able to confirm that all was well and she left with everything in order.

After morning teas and coffees, with low cloud over the airfield and little chance of flying, we turned our attention to anything that could be done around the club. We turned our attention to the track which has started deteriorating now we are using it to retrieve cables when flying.

Some of the potholes.
Hole inspectors
With the vibrator plate not available it was the pilot shuffle.
Completed track repairs.
After a quick lunch and more teas and coffees it was time to pack up and head home with no prospect of flying. All survived the hard work with one exception:-

The sledge lost it’s head.
Thank you to the navvies who dug, scraped filled and stomped today. Phil Hardwick, Steve Fletcher, Malcolm WJ, John Allen, Robin Wilson, Hugh Gascoyne and Mark Worsfold completed the gang.
