Bannerdown News - From May 2012

Weekend 25/26/27th May

Hot Hot Hot!

A successful Trial Lesson Evening on Friday. We flew 7 people, and three took membership forms and were keen to come back for more! Another great BBQ after the flying finished, organised by Joe and cooked by Ian, had the new dining room in full use.

Saturday brought strong Sun and a faily strong breeze with strong thermals to be found in the clear blue skies! Not as much wind on Sunday. Another hot day, little shade and several people looking rather sunburnt by the end of the weekend.

Again members were out getting the club ready for:

Weekend 19th/20th May

Well it wasn’t the best of soaring weekends, but still a productive one. Both days were flyable with some flights staying off the ground for a bit.

Lots of work being done around the clubhouse – and beyond. In just a week or two the grass outside the nissans had grown from ‘slightly long’ to ‘crop’. The mower fought through it slowly. With the strimmer out too, the area looks much tidier.

Oz was last seen on the mower heading down runway 01…

Weekend 12th/13th May

Cracking weekend! Starting on Friday with Steve’s 200k bimble. We welcomed several new members on Saturday with superb conditions. R3, 547, R32, R12, 271, V17 and JA launched and stayed up / disappeared from their first launches with flights over 300k acheived! Conditions continued into Sunday with more X-Country and more soaring.
