          Well, it was an ordinary day. Kind of. Maybe not.

          23 flights on Sunday plus 8 on Saturday. 1 1/2 rain delay but the ground crew spread diamond dry on the playing field and the game continued.

          Oh, and did I mention there was a first solo? No wait not one or two but 3 first solos!

          Congratulations to Andy, Phillip and Austen for accomplishing their first glider solos here at 55LL.

            The first solo of the day was Andy C. The long awaited solo finally came and it was a thing of beauty.  A picture says a thousand words so, I’ll let these pictures tell the story;

            Andy C. with CFI-G Steve S.

            That must have been some really cold water…

            The second solo for the day was 14 year old Philip Nowik. Here he is getting soaked by his friend Paul with CFI-G and towpilot Mark M. giving his approval. Congratulations Philip!!!

            Our third solo of the day was by new member Austen who just joined the club the day before.  He had been flying with Steve S. on a number of occasions prior. Austen is an ATP and is going for his ad on rating. CFI-G Steve S. and towpilot Mark M. congratulate him on his first glider solo flight.

              Congratulations to all that soloed on Sunday! Pictured with CFI-G Steven Snyder is Andy but does the ‘C’ after Andy’s name stand for Comedian?
