Klippeneck 2016 - day 6

A good forecast brought out a lot of locals as well as the Booker expedition team. Cloud base forecast to be 6000 rising to 7000 amsl (with Klippeneck being 3200 amsl) resulted in Richard setting a 180 k task. Clearly there is a lot of competition amongst the pilots here as there is much post flight debate about speeds and looking at traces and then lots of comments about barrel sizes and whether they are fair or not (but all in good humour) but everyone seems to agree that the handicap task system is a good thing.
More members are starting to arrive in readyness for week two, all getting very busy her.
A few more pictures to follow showing activities from the day.
