Summertime demise sometime soon
Hard to believe that a mere month away and we are at the Autumn solstice
driving inextricably towards the winter and the rainy season.
This weekend returned back to normal and the crew headed out for
a relaxed weekend following all the lead-up to the TOSS Aero event.
Humour being the central piece of the slope behavior,
and plastic reining supreme, we delighted in getting back to a bit of old fashioned hilarious combat on the Kommetjie slope.
Damian was by far the main fetcher of the day, enjoying a good few health
inducing walks after getting tanked out of the air once more.
After starting off somewhat light and southerly, the wind picked up towards
the late afternoon and the BEE’s positively zipped around the sky.
Lionel maidened his newly aquired largish Spitfire, all EPP construction
and weighing in at a healthy 2kg’s. Flew like a dream straight off the
bat but suffered a bit in the low lift of the early afternoon.
The warbirds enjoyed a good outing after having spent a good while
in the shed and the lads left the slope happy as peckers on
Saturday evening for a few toots at Fishermans.
Sunday by all reports started off SE and then did the inevitable South switch
and the guys then got creative on the south slope of Red Hill and
created a form of frontside DS in typical on/off southerly conditions.
All in all a great weekends time spent on the slope by the lads
adding to the already 400 hours plus that have been slope accumulated
so far by club members from March AGM last year and running
up to March AGM this year. Thats quite a bit of time flown out
on the slope by the guys. Anybody got any girlfriends left?
