The last couple of days were good flying days again with the club gliders being used to go cross country and gain badge claims where relevant. Paul F completed his Silver duration and distance in 319 and Zeljko completed his Silver height (but only by getting below airfield height at one point to then recover and get to 7,000ft - don't forget the airfield is 3,000ft asl) - well done guys..
The last day culminated with Graham S organising a formation flight of his Petrel, the Duo Discus and the K21. This proved a challenge akin to a juggler keeping plates spinning as there was only one tug and following a shower having gone through leaving dead air with no scope to soar. One pass was achieved as basically the gliders were down to circuit height before they all got together.
