Just popped over to Shobdon to see how they were getting on. Fantastic weather in that part of the country with cloudbase around 5500'. It is amazing what they can train dogs to do these days. Listening on the radio I heard the controller sending poor old Rover out to retrieve glider after glider. He seemed to be doing OK until it was noticed he left one of the gliders with the wing-tip infringing the undershoot area of the grass runway by at least 12" (see photo). Something about old dogs and new tricks. Perhaps better stick to the buggies at Booker.
