    MINIGLIDER EVENING RESERVE……10.7.18

    Tuesday was one of those days that i will remember fondly in my declining years. Conditions were almost perfect. The wind was variable and decreased gradually through the evening. There were patches of weak lift that drifted through on the breeze. Conditions were difficult enough to make it interesting. At times there was nothing, at others the lift was large but very weak.

    Only two landings outside the box this time, both by JP. Must concentrate harder. There were four 3 minute maxes, all by the same bloke, David P. Excellent launching and flying. Graham had a nice couple of flights that went down wind and got back to the box between the trees.

    Altogether it was a very pleasant and relaxed evening.

    Next Miniglider is on 19th August ar 2pm so there is plenty of time to get something flying,

    Cheers,

    John.

    Oh, nearly forgot……David Poole……………NXT…………1298 secs
    John Price………….Blaster 3………974
    Graham Stallard…..Blaster3……….771.

    On the 19th August there was a strong SW wind causing bad turbulence so the Miniglider comp was abandoned.
