Wet Wabbit Weekend it was indeed
OK, so bang on cue we get the first and real cold front of the winter.
Easter Friday delivered the pre-frontal goods with the wind nice and
strong from the North West and the early birds caught the worm
as Brendan was able to really have the vector up and away and
whistling around much better. As the day progressed the wind
did increase but the lift just did not do so at the same time.
In the end a very nice day on the slope had by all,
other than once more being harassed by SANPARKS rangers
for no particular reason and with such arrogance it was hardly believable.
Saturday was wet – just plain wet, with a garden loving down pour
so there was nary a soul on the slope.
Sunday much the same and two intrepid persons headed out to terrible conditions
and headed home not too much later.
Monday went still as a fart, so it was out with the Sky Climber
(an EPO 2m ship that is a lot of fun to fly) and
off to find some slope generated thermals. Had a real good time
with the spinning anti gravitational device at the front end, getting
one out of trouble when required….
