Day 5 (take 1, canned)

Friday 9 Jan 09 – a task was briefed, but when it was time to grid, the sky was overcast and it was cooler than wanted. The task was scrubbed. A few people flew anyway: Pete Paine went around the task, and Dion Baker flew a 50km to Loxton and back. As the overcast thinned and thickened, thermals improved and worsened.

The photo shows Dion getting ready before his flight. He says he came back from Loxton very carefully at best glide speed… good effort on a day when many decided not to fly.
