Fri 8th June - Course week

Yesterday, Jill's blog started, "It was always going to be cloudier today-but there was some doubt about the possibility of rain". - Sounds similar to today!

After the course dinner at the Keepers Cottage last night (thanks Jim for organising) we all turned up on time in anticipation for the last day of the course,but again were met with low cloud and spots of drizzle. Further briefings commenced,this time on circuit planning, theory of flight and Instruments. All interesting stuff and all of us learned something.

June Course (Robert Lee)

Just before lunch, John and Guy had one final weather check and although it was slightly brighter the cloud was still only about 400ft, so after consultation with course members it was decided to scrub the day. However despite finishing on a low it had been a great course. We had barely 3 days flying but still managed some 93 launches in total.

Great progress was made by existing members Simon, Jim, Andy and Mark and also new members Jon and Alex. Its a great shame that Alex lives too far away to continue to be a regular member, but we hope he continues to enjoy his training at lasham. Good luck Alex !

Many, many thanks to John Sillett and GuyAdams for their excellent instruction and long days that they put in when we did fly and also many thanks to helpers Tim Petty, Robert Lee, James Smart, George Sanderson, Jill Harmer and Graham Barden. All in all a very enjoyable week. - Andy Williams
