Trimax who manufactured our new mower came to the Club today to brief us on routine maintenance and set the machine up for our needs.
Robert Lee sets off  (Peter Smith)
They have worked hard to make it as easy as possible and we can spread the word in due course. Encouraged by a field which has dried out well, and grass that is already growing, Robert Lee set off over the horizon and back several times. The size and cutting width of over 6 metres means that we have to re-think how we set about mowing the field. Unlike gliding should be, time spent turning is not very productive.

We are starting with a cut height of 40mm and will see how that works, so far it looks about right. Adjustment is very straightforward if we decide to change it. - Peter Smith

KEK is back (Jill Harmer)

Following the refurbishment of KEK in Poland by Refinish, the delivery chain brought the K21 back via Lasham to Southern Sailplanes at Membury today. Jill and Pete collected the trailer and returned it to North Hill. A quick peek in the trailer shows the new sparkling blue livery. - J&P
