Saturday, May 30th

One of the earliest operational starts on record for the club! At approximately 8 AM, Cindy towed Jim Morzillo, flying the 1-26, to GFL to participate in a fly-in breakfast. This served as advertisement for the club and the sport of soaring. The 1-26 and Pawnee generated much interest and at least one person is going to call Jim Morzillo to arrange for an introductory ride.

Jim Morzillo, following a “light breakfast”, then towed the 1-26, piloted by Fred Woll, back to 5B2. They arrived around 10:15 AM to find the SSA wash and wax in full gear. Thanks to Tony for organizing this event and all that participated in the wash and wax – the fleet looks great!!!

We then started normal flight operations. The strong and varying winds made for some interesting takeoffs and landings, but many people found it to be an excellent soaring day. Bob, in 2LE, and Doug, in AW, led the day in length of flight and altitude gains. Rick also did an outstanding job in the 1-26.
