What a blast today at 501 Bethel
Yes we flew; Alan B.and I..
Pretty much strait in about 15 mph on launch, with a little switching back and forth and a little gusty with thermals rolling in.
Launched an went up immediately.
Flew over 1.5 hours. Stayed up found lift lines and got over 750 ft over launch.
A little rough at first then smoothed out and was nice. Glider flies better now with the adjustment to quote Bill Waters "power steering" Landed just before sun down.
Enjoying my favorite IPA at home now.
Miss you all
