Congratualtions to Derek Spencer who was elected a life member of the club at the AGM.

Flying Sunday 26 April 2015

Congratulations to Myron Hall and Ben Carter who converted to the K8.

Flying 11 & 12 April 2015

The weather on Saturday wasn't as good as predicted but there were some thermals around. Gabrielle (and Derek Spencer as the ballast) managed 30 mins or so but they topped out at 2600'. Kym got 40 mins in the K8 right at the end of the day.

Sunday's weather was even further away from the forecast. Mostly sunny - yeah right. The sunny only just shone through in very small patches late in the afternoon so it was a day of bashing out circuits.

A big thanks to everyone who helped out both days and a really big thanks to Ben and Kim Carter for driving the winch all day on Sunday and keeping things running smoothly.

Flying Easter 2015

Friday was a quiet day as there were only three of us to go flying and, as we weren’t in a rush, we didn’t start flying until nearly 2:00pm. The timing was just about right as we found on Myron’s check flight that the thermals were just starting to go and despite topping out at 1700’, we could have stayed airbourne for longer than the 20 minutes we that had. Congratulations to Myron for getting a one hour soaring flight on only his 2nd solo flight. Thanks also to Ted Bowden from BVGC, who took time out from working on his Ka6 to come out and run the wing for us.

Saturday was a far from a quiet day. Derek Spencer's parents brought up four of his five nephews to go flying. The youngest is 5 and the eldest is 10. A big thankyou to Myron, Darren and Leigh for helping out with driving the winch, running wings etc so Derek could take hisnephews flying. 

Derek and his nephew Toby, got a monster thermal that started off at about 3 knots, quickly picked up to 6 knots and then topped out at 8 knots getting them up to 5300’. Toby REALLY likes spins and so they spent most of that height spinning the glider back down.
