Sunday was a beautiful day with brilliant sunshine and a promise of a very busy launch point. A promise which came true.
A BBQ was organised by PJ for the close of flying. There were rumours of several 50km tasks which turned out to be just that, rumours, as the day did not develop into a cross country soaring day.
However, Ron would argue that he had the best flight of the day and only brought the Pegase back for someone else to have a go. Ron had the longest flight of the day.
During the day PJ had a couple of cross field landings to complete his cross-country endorsement and new rumours started that PJ organised the BBQ as a celebration!! Not true of course, but a celebration, nonetheless.
After hanger packing the BBQ was fired up and Peter took on head chef duties. A big thanks to all the members who unpacked the hanger, ran the launch point and finally packed up at the end of the day. Here are a few pictures of the BBQ.
Looking back on 2023, as usual one of the highlights was the autumn safari to Kerry. Storm Agnes knocked out some of the flying days, but we still managed to get flying. Here’s a picture of the K18 standing by to be launched into the air by a car tow. But what’s that “ground equipment” next
