Spring is sprung and the grass is ris
Spring is sprung, the grass is ris.
I wonders where the birdies is.
They say the birds is on the wing.
Ain’t that absurd?
I always thought the wing was on the bird.
And so we found ourselves in a windless Saturday watching
a frontal system approach for Sunday, which will mostly kill any South East push.
Sunday morning dawned real windy from the North as predicted
and so we ran for the Chapmans Peak site like cats on a hot tin roof.
True to form it was more Northerly that North West and the morning session
was on the very bumpy and very windy side. Once a rain squal had passed through
announcing the arrival of the front, things cooled down substantially,
the wind straightened out to the North West, and the slope lit up beautifully.
With the wind backing off to a manageble level, the lift smoothed out and
a grateful bunch of slopers got down to enjoying themselves immensly.
Humor once again ruled behaviour and a whole bunch of fun was had
with some maiden flights of glassies and foamies thrown in for good measure
as well as some really nice formation flying with the foamie warbirds.
All in all a great day on the slope, and well worth the 5 hours spent gazing into the sky.
