Long Days

Well yet another day (Wednesday) that started at 8am and finished at 9:30pm. The day started off looking less than desirable but slowly became very nice around 9am. We had several students getting around 3 flights each. 
After the afternoon passed we saw Ken R, Ken L, Jeff L, Ang, Daniel, Peter(transport), Peter(Nurse), Allan, Jeff V, Steve, Mathieu, Chad, Devin, Clint and even myself getting a flight. The night was the night for Chad as he was able to fly for a solid 10mins with at least 100ft over the top of the hill for his first real Ridgesoaring flight with a Top landing. The night was gusty but allowed for some great groundhandling. The students with patience and great reverses where then allowed to fly in the almost too windy conditions. 
The flying in the mornings has been perfect in the mornings with the exception of only a couple days in the past couple weeks. Most students have been getting about 4 flights each morning. This morning we had a few first time intermediates getting their first flights off of Cochrane. Looking forward to introducing them to you all in your next visits to the hill.
This weekend we will be in Golden for High Flights but will resume on Wednesday evening for classes. Please call in on Wednesday at 4pm if you can make it out.
Have a Great Long Weekend
