GREAT first soaring day of 2016

Opening day of 2016 brought awesome weather and a good turnout of volunteers and glider students and pilots.

For a new club still figuring some things out, I think the day went amazingly well.  In an unusual turn of events, Brud and James (the first 2 fliers of the day) actually found some decent thermals and stayed aloft quite a while while the later afternoon pilots (Cindy and prospective member Bill C) made it back to the ground much faster.

Except for a minor incident with a lawn chair, all people and equipment made it through the day unscathed.  Great kickoff to the 2016 season and great start for the new club!
