Like other comments, had some excellent flying on Sunday, breezy but plenty of lift, and great fun playing a game of dare following thermals downwind at at a rapid rate, then beating back up the wind. The cloudbase was quite low initially, so the first couple of flights included some IFR time, but it gradually lifted. As the clouds were plentiful and moving through very fast, it was much like full size gliding, hopping from cloud to cloud with most providing decent lift.
Thanks again to John, Tony and Alan, and to Pat for going through all the organising grief.

Thanks to the "Ghosties" for a great weekends flying. This was some of the best, most challenging flying I have experienced for a long time. A check of my notes show that I had 18 flights and spent more than 4.5 hours in the air during the two days. Thanks to the "tuggies" for their work and also to Ray who kept me calm when a big nasty cloud swallowed model.
Brian. :)
