Pilots meeting below was well attended. CD gave a good, well, very good briefing including weather. Day cancelled as most, well, everyone understood. Tomorrow, Monday, we most likely will fly. 


 

LS 1F " HA" going together as we are using the hanger for weighing today. 



In the above picture, left side on top of sheepskin,  new total energy probe covers have just come in to Wings and Wheels. Look really nice to keep your probe in.




All together so let's check the weight. Handicap will be adjusted according for all cub class gliders.






Not all are here yet.

Tomorrow afternoon, Lovington area  below.
