The club was out in force again on Friday, rigged and ready to go. Nils the weatherman launched early to sample the conditions, the rest of the grid sat in the shade while he cooked, until that blue sky obligingly produced clouds.
And what a great day it was, excellent visibility, reliable climbs, altogether the sort of summer we have been waiting for. Your correspondent was too busy enjoying the post-task sunshine to go and enquire about flights achieved, but there was at least one first 300 (Simon McC) and some 400s, as well as perfectly respectable shorter tasks.
The day finished with the traditional beers while the Friday evening group went into action and the model aircraft were launched.
Don't forget the final Thame BBQ on Sunday at 1700.
