Sunday on hold

We have tasks and await a re-brief at mid-day.  We can see a blue sky approaching and even a few Cu.  The big question is; how wide is the soaring window !!!  Still time for the lead to change.

Friday finishers

Not so many finishers today but a good task that made the most of the day.  Lots of top cover and weak climbs kept the speeds low.  A few landouts around Thame. Everyone accounted for and gliders on the way back. Saturday briefing at 10. Grid before briefing. Forecast has good climbs but some wind.

Bouncing in the Blue

A fantastic task yesterday in clear blue skies.  Great fun if you could see the gaggles, not so easy for those that had a run through bad air. Wednesday has now been scrubbed. Next Briefing, Thursday, set for an hour later, 11am.  DO NOT grid before briefing.  Possible task after a front has passed through.

Tuesday - Day 3

The sky is blue but the Met Man is promising small cu so it looks like being a good racing day. The task is a cat's cradle to the north. The grid is in formation.

Update - Sunday

Sunday Scrubbed.  Monday looking like a definite Day 2.  Currently Grid before briefing and briefing set for 10am, but drop in to Control for any update in the morning. Lots of Pics on the gallery now (from Graham and Chris) and there is also a great set from Day 1 loaded on-line by Stephen Greenham.

Briefing - Sunday

Today's task is currently TBD. Optimistic Met Man is offering us a window late this afternoon.  Pre-Rebrief meeting for competitors at the clubhouse - 1pm. Congratulations to George on his award for best achievement of the day; getting back to the airfield with a text book final glide after his first comp task ever.  Also provided the most entertaining snail trace action replay.
