Wednesday 10th January

What a difference a day makes! - from the depths of winter on Tuesday to what seemed like early spring day and the long flying list reflected this.
All the available Club 2-seaters were in use (Mark Layton)
All the club gliders were quickly on line, after a short delay due to misting canopies, John Street and Mike Fitz where first to launch and we're rewarded with a high launch and beautiful clear views to the South with mist in the river valleys,
It was nice to fly with Mike again as he has not been able to get up to to the club for a while.

There were no booked trial lessons today but tuggie Robert was kept on the go with plenty of aero tows today with members keeping up to date with the tug. All three two seaters were kept busy all day as were the two Juniors.

Everyone flew and had a great day we finished about 4.00pm, just as well, as the canopies were starting to mist up. - John Street.
Pete Harmer explains how gliders fly (Jill Harmer)

A group of 10yearolds from Feniton CofE Primary School visited the Club to learn about gliding. They are about to embark on a Design Technology project to build a model glider. Junior Development Coordinator Pete Harmer explained the rudiments of a glider and managed to answer all their questions.

 They had the opportunity to look round a full size glider and were thrilled watching the launching and landings on such a lovely North Hill day. We wish them luck in their competition for free distance and look forward to them returning to fly with us when they grow a little taller. - J&P
