I spent Saturday morning in a trike, flying out of Rutherford to Hexham for touch and goes and then back to Rutherford into a wind that reduced our groundspeed to negative at times, fantastic fun! It was thermic from 10:00, if you could have got off the ground safely, it would've been a great day for hang gliding.

Pete & Chris are in a hospitable mood and the Evils should be nesting. If that’s not enough, Georgia is having her 10th (Dave & Megan please note) and Denman school is celebrating their 125th with a big fete. There’s more chance of a frost than light winds at this time of year but hey, it’s a lucky place and we are optimists if nothing else.
