A light north-westerly with the possibility of some soaring during the afternoon greeted the Sunday soarers. Two K13's and the K8 were given their daily inspection (DI). As part of this they were hoovered ready for the BGA audit on Tuesday.

Next to fly with Phil was Simon Masterman. Simon arrived with his family who watched as he enjoyed his experience with us.

The only solo pilots today were Ed Borlase and Adam Hoskin. Both had rigged their K6's and enjoyed soaring flights of 1 hour 1 minute and 1 hour 56 minutes respectively.

Some of you may have counted only seven trainees. The final trainee was retuning member Dick Masters. Dick had spent most of the day giving the clubhouse a good clean ready for the audit alongside Gavin Short who was getting the paperwork ready as well. They both arrived at the launch area and Dick was happy to just have a flight with Gavin at the controls. My daughter, Paula, was also at the airfield and was a great help all day at the launch point. As a reward and also a more relaxing flight for me, I took her for a hangar flight to end the day.
Whilst packing the toys away, it was chance to give them a quick wash ready for the audit.

Thank you to all at the club on a very busy flying day ang getting things ready for the BGA visit.
