Grand day yesterday with some good soaring in thermals. Around 3500' bases locally went up to about 5000' inland, as you can see from these photos John took over and around Rothes on a blast down towards Huntly in R1 with Geddes. Andy rounded off his week's visit from Norfolk with an enjoyable trip in HYJ with Anne later in the afternoon.
It was the club's AGM after the toys were put away. Roger, Bruce and John were re-appointed as directors and at the subsequent board meeting Robert, Anne and Bruce were re-appointed as Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary respectively.
Mike, our CFI, awarded the trophy for meritorious flight to Francesca, for her cool-headed handling of a tow rope break on her second solo, and the shield for overall contribution to John, for his work on club IT and infrastructure.
