Back to the salt mines! ye swabs...
Welcome to the new year to all and sundry who may be reading this blog.
May 2010 be a good year full of sloping fun and challenges.
About the only good thing about being back at the salt mine is
that you get to make some more money… for some more toys.
Life’s little pleasures have their price and I’m back to the salt mines…
but it’s 30 degrees Celcius outside and sunny. Could be worse!
We could be in England in freezing weather!
Over the festive season we all had a bang load of flying,
and in some cases just a wee bit too much.
Never thought you could get a bit tired of sloping, but there it is.
After a third day of consecutive sloping my brain refused to
do it any more and a healthy break was required to revive the verve…
like about 24 hours!
There was plenty of wind and a good few of us
spent a good few afternoons up at St.James
and there were a good few southerlies and South Westers
which brought the Kommetjie slope into play.
Notably there were very few, if any, injuries to man
or plane over this festive period, so most fleets are still in pristine condition
for the Two Oceans Slope Soarers Aerobatic contest 2010 at the end of January.
Only 2 weekends to go! and a lot of practice still required…
whats a Cuban 8 again?
See you at the aerobatics contest soon!
Be there, or be square!
