Weekend report September 4 - 6

The three day weekend was a bit of a dud. The weather was pleasant on Saturday, but strong northeast winds from the passing hurricane kept us on the ground.

On Sunday, the wind blew from the opposite direction and we were able to do a little flying in the 2-33. Chris R and his instructor appreciated the Doug's effort to come tow for us.

Tom (TH) had a nice flight on Monday and picked the right moment to land - just before the Labor Day parade overflowed onto the runway. Christopher got the 1-23 out, but decided not to add to the pandemonium and dragged it back to its tiedown.

In other weekend news, all the gliding countries in the world grounded the Blanik L13.
