Mind the tree...
I GOT THE POWER…
well electric anyway and attached to a very nice little EPP Extra 300,
which we decided was just the ticket for what looked like a flatliner of a Saturday.
So off to the field Bendan and myself gandered and had a good blast with some electric toys.
At this stage I will not mention the tree incident …
other than to say the little Cessna I once owned…
is no more…
I was not on the sticks at the time….
and the tree did not need to be cut down this time…
Sunday produced a peach of a day, sunny but cool with a hint of a South Wester.
Reaching the Kommetjie slope at midday, the conditions were cold as can be,
with the lift solid, and smooth. Kommetjie can produce these amazing conditions,
where you hardly feel a breeze caress your eyebrows, but there is tons of lift out there.
Thankfully Lionel had brought half his squadron of slope soarers
and Jeff, Malcolm, Marc and myself had a merry time maidening a few, fetching a few,
and in general having a blast of an afternoon on the slope.
On the other side of the Peninsula, the wind was not even stirring
a few few guys had fun at the power club. Odd the vagaries of this little peninsula,
that virtually every nook and cranny can produce a differing result on the day,
if you are prepared to to go look for it.
