        Right now Thursday is looking quite good, 4.7 Kts lift to 6K agl. Friday 3.9 Kts to 4.1K agl. Surface winds both days 9 to 12 knots out of the north west. I would like to fly on Thursday if we can get an operation going. John Lincoln

            I’ll be there for sure. Hoping there will be students there to enjoy such a promising day.

                              Thursday was a good day at 55LL. 11 flights total with John B taking 3 pattern tows and a 1:15 soaring flight. Well done! John L of course lead the day at 5:28 and John D flew 2:48. There were a couple of others but their names were not John. HOWEVER John S was our tow pilot today.

                              See you all tomorrow!

                                And a nice day it was. Just to add to Steve’s comments it was a bit difficult to get up over 3500 to 4000 agl. After that the soaring was pretty good. It got the best after around 4:30 pm. My high was 9000 msl over Dacy and I was finding lift up to 500 fpm.

                                I wish to thank Steve Snyder and Jim Hopkins for staying out until I landed. It’s always nice to have friends help, and help they did. THANK YOU!!!

                                    So much for forecasting. Two pattern tows with Animesh which he handled very well then we shut down due to excess wind. Try again tomorrow.
