Yea’ I gotta get away from the house today. Mandy’s getting a new horse. :roll:  All she’ll be talking about for the rest of the day will be , bridals, girths, saddles and other rubbish. :evil:

Why can’t women ever talk about sensible things like centre of gravity, aerofoil sections, and angles of incidence??? :D

(They’re a strange species) :!:

See y' up on the slope.
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

Any flying done today ?  :D

Flew yesterday with Keith and Ed... Was great... Between the showers !  :!:
But a few bucket of rain don't stop true slopers, and we managed to fly quiet a lot considering the day  :D

And the day concluded by Keith flying a biggie  :clap:  :clap: And a nice landing !
All that to say that this ASW22 looks great in flight ! (and the high visibility wing tips helped that day  :!: ) And well done Keith !  :D

Hi Fred.
Me and Ed did some flying at The Big L today. Much better weather than yesterday. Unfortunately Keith was right about the hand-gliders and para-gliders :!: :!: . There was loads of them. They were having a competition. So I did not get to fly my K8. I only got to fly my easy glider, and even flying that it was a bit hairy. So many hand and para gliders in the air, and so many people just wandering about through the landing area. You really had to keep your eyes pealed.
