Dartmoor Gliding News - Wednesday 7th February 2024

Another day of low cloud and, after the heavy overnight rain, a very wet airfield mean't the merry band of members set about a series of jobs.

The dip in the rigging area was levelled.

Phil & Steve levelling up.
The scrap aluminium was taken to the scrap yard, the SF27 ARC continued a pace including some minor paint work.

Fuselage into trailer.
Some members took time to do minor repairs and fettling on their trailers and Gliders.

The weather brightened around 1430 but some low cloud was still present in places and the field judged to still be too wet meant we didn’t fly.

Thanks to everyone who turned up today, lots of jobs done by a great team to keep the club running smoothly.
