Sat 1st August

We had only a skeleton crew, so it was all hands on deck throughout to keep the operation going.  Martin Woolner and Stu Procter took turns flying their LS3, Eric flew his ASG29 and John Pursey and Stirling Melhuish rigged and flew the "new" blue Eagle.  Conditions could not be said to be booming, but there was a reasonable mix of ridge and thermal to keep the skilled aloft.  Stu just pipped Team Eagle for the longest flight of the day, with both achieving about 1hr45.

Phil Morrison treated young family friend Ben to a flight, in between the pair of them providing an excellent glider retrieval service - hopefully Ben will be back for more.  Meanwhile Ross Pratt and Ruth had their skills interrogated by John Sillett and James Flory respectively.  Each was rewarded with a solo in the K21s and their rating cards reinstated.

Huge thanks to Andrew Logan and Paul Medlock for providing all the winch driving even though they did not fly themselves. - Ruth Comer
