Weekend report May 7 - 8


Today was a reminder that spring gives us the best thermals of the year, and despite the mediocre forecast, conditions today were excellent.

Skip (JS) made a nice 143 km flight, and Steve and Tim each flew PM for over an hour. The 1-23 was assembled and Keith, who has come back to fly with us, flew 3J until after I left the field. I'll bet he was smiling the whole time.

Thermals were 8kts to cloudbase, and tomorrow looks to be more of the same. We made a new towrope today.

Two fuel runs were made this week and, ouch, a tow to 3K costs us $10 just for the gas.

We're looking for a towpilot for tomorrow.
