No flying over the weekend - low cloud, gusty winds across the field and loads of showers going through. However, we had the Highland AGM last night with a reasonable turnout, despite the lack of a flying day!
Robert, Andy and Anne were voted back on to the board and, at the short board meeting after the AGM, Robert, Anne and Bruce were reappointed as chairman, treasurer and secretary respectively.
Prizes were awarded to the following:
Duration in a club glider: Stuart and Ellen for their epic 7 hour twice-around-the-track task at last year's UKMSC in R1;
Absolute height gain: Phil, up to 19,000' last autumn;
Ladder distance: Geddes, by a clear margin of the few ladder recorded flights;
Meritorious flight: Toni and John, for their outstanding retrieve of the Eurofox after repairs, involving a diversion to Portmoak;
CFI Shield: Bruce, for general secretarial stuff and the trailer excursion to Kent and back with the tug;
Monkey: several possible candidates, but ultimately to Phil and Trevor jointly for an incident involving R1 - nuff said!
