Talgarth action

So far we have only reported rumours from the Big House where most of the team are staying, we are now in a position to report facts. On Saturday night they went to the River Café in Glasbury, where they seem to have had a good time.

Yesterday a contingent set off to the Big Pit in Blaenavon, well worth a visit but unfortunately closed when they got there. They did however get to inspect Glyn's new trailer.

It'll be OK once Glyn has polished it

In the evening they had roast beef, and passed the time teaching cadet George how to play poker, a useful skill for a glider pilot, though possibly not on the BGA syllabus.

And this morning - guess what - we went flying! The forecast predicted rain by noon but the rain hadn't checked the forecast and stayed away until 1330. The ridges were working well up to Hay Bluff and down the valley to Crickhowell, so we had  some fun while it lasted.

We hope to do some more of this sort of thing tomorrow........but on the other hand we have staked KCZ down very securely.
