Good evening all!!!

 

Mother nature took it a little easy on us today and I am glad we didn't have yesterday's weather (winds 30 to 40 with gusts to 50!).  While she gave us 20 deg F temps to setup in, the wind died-down completely by noon and the brilliant sunshine produced some excellent soaring conditions.  Max temp was about 34 deg F.  To combat the chilly conditions (for us in VA), we setup a "pilot's lounge" (two tents joined together with 3.5 sides up) complete with multiple tent heaters, carpeting, brats, hot-dogs, kraut, chili-cheese dip, cabbage/potato soup, both kinds of donuts (crispy kreme and dunkin), hot cocoa and some punch-in-the-face coffee.  We burned some propane today baby!!

 

We flew 4 rounds of 10-minute, open-winch with 100-pt FAI tapes (no flipping allowed), 2800 pt max. 

 

Lots of fun!!  If you all are in our area next Jan-1, please stop by and bring-in the new year!
