April 14 – 15: Promising Saturday but nothing on Sunday

The forecasts for Saturday were good and flying started at 9 am – truly a record.  There were many students determined to fly with Cathy, Glenn and Dave. Keith got his solo in the ASK 21 ( congrats!! ) and got a few more flights in.  But strong winds shut down club glider operations at 1 pm.  However private ships kept flying till 3: 30 pm, struggling to find lift, and challenged by the winds on landing.  It was a good day to practice crosswind landings and keep the gliders from weathervaning into the wind.  In all, 25 flights – pretty good!

Sunday was a bust – overcast and wet.
