Weekend report June 8 - 9

Saturday was a fairly worthless soaring day, but we accomplished some good training, thanks to the dedication of Dennis and Dan, and to Doug's willingness to drive, tow, stand around, and drive again.  Dan handled his simulated rope break perfectly, and then helped us avoid a real one by discovering a defect in our newest towrope.

On Sunday, the weather was much better but not quite reliable enough for cross-country flying.   Greg (JD), Skip (JS), Bill (PM), and Dan (3J) had local flights, with the duration prize going to Dan.  Bob towed, Thomas instructed, and a small group of would-be mechanics attempted to replace the 2-33 main wheel at the end of the day.  They were foiled this time, but they'll take another shot at it next weekend.
