Shobdon report

The "pensioners" are having a grand time at Shobdon. Saturday was a bit damp, but we did have an excellent dinner at the Corners Inn. Sunday was gloriously sunny with a bit of wave for the persistent. We had the whole fleet in the air, Glyn G1, John JH, William LC, Glen A9, Jim J1M, Jane 118 and Roland HNK. We all had a grand time in thermals and occasional wave, and some explored the valley down to Talgarth. Mike 315 took David H and Richard C for familiarisation flights, and Andrew JTU (temporarily a Lasham member) took Mark W for some ridge running at Hay Bluff - handy to have that engine for back up. This excellent day was followed by a meal in the clubhouse followed by a very comprehensive talk on wave by locals Phil and Diana King.
Monday was wet, very wet, but it cleared late in the afternon, so we threw the wings onto 315 and J1M. Mike/David H managed 1h 30m playing around in broken wave up to about 4500ft, and J1M managed 30 mins or so. Here's what you missed:

Today is a bit on the misty side but there is a clearance promised, honest.

Good to see you all having fun. Always best when there's more about the flying than the dinners!

Both Satirday and Sunday look good for Shobdon wave. Hang in there...
