Klippeneck 2017 - Richard's forecast of a late start but good conditions proved right

Vic in 315 set the ball rolling and after he hadn't come back for an hour everyone else finally believed it was soarable. Conditions improved as the afternoon went on and good soaring up to 7,000 ft was enjoyed by several pilots. Nick von M flew 319 for the first time and came back after an hour to let someone else have a go but after a short break he was sent up again for another go.
Ashley was spotted in 944
John had the bare faced cheek to tell us his shorts were tested to CS23 but most agreed they had suffered a structural failure.
The evening finished with a meal at the restaurant on the hill.
Happy days
