Another typical winter’s day at Booker

Today got off to a shaky start when gremlins got into the clubhouse and attacked the IT and the heating boiler. The hardy Bronze course attenders wrapped up warm and carried on with Jane’s lively presentation about air law keeping everyone warm. Things mechanical were soon back working with the assistance of some handy club members, clubhouse now warm again.

Glyn and Heggie flew to Shobdon for Sunday lunch and to check out the wave, for some members every day is like Sunday.

A lovely day to get your feet in the air and all of the two seaters were in the air as well as Junior FZA and the BBC’s LS8.

Graham Saw test flew our newly refurbished K13 CFA and reports that nothing fell off. Congratulations to Robin Willgoss and all of the other club members who helped out with this work.

Graham has also been selected as one of the 4-strong British team to compete in the 1st World Advanced Glider Aerobatic Championships in Jamijarvi, Finland in July. He is now looking for sponsorship for his mosquito repellent.

After successfully passing her Bronze exam, cadet Siena Whiteside (pictured here with Bob Davey) had the last flight of the day.

Ps Oliver Llewellyn is looking for an insurance share in a Club class glider, if interested please leave a message at the office.
