Fantastic weekend of club flying, with mostly everything that could fly up there enjoying it, including most of the power hangar occupants. Saturday had a cloudbase at around 2300'-2500' QFE and everyone had some sort of soaring flight. Sunday was blue but still with weak and intermittent thermals. Longest flights around the hour mark. Plenty of rust cleared away after such a prolonged spell of soggy weather. Great to see Scott, Matt Dutoy and Patrick back flying. The K21 is in Holland for a maintenance issue we couldn't deal with in-house, but the Twin Astir is doing sterling service as a temporary replacement.
