Finally, managed to recover my photos! Thanks a million to Gerry and the guys for hosting the event, lots of people and gliders, and it was good to see some familiar faces!!

Enjoy a few photos :)

Bring on the next meeting!
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

I used to do photography, i feel your pain!
I was in nz years ago and was at the wrc rally. My photos were epic. Someone said they even looked professional! 🤣
Its the light. The grey here just hurts.

True! Light is very important! I am far from being even an amateur :( bless the digital age!  Take 200 photos, to get 10 decent if lucky!  ;D Argentic had to be careful! Those were the days!!  :(

By the way, forgot I took photos from my phone too! So here are a few more :)

By the way 2… did any married men felt the disturbance in the force yesterday??? 🤣🤣

We’re still flying on Tountinna every Wednesday afternoon. So far, we’ve been very lucky with the weather.
Some photos from recent days………

During the summer, Philip Kieran and myself often got flying off the coast on Loop Head. Light winds, perfect for some floaty type models.

This was our gathering yesterday afternoon. Hard to believe we’re coming to the end of October with such fine weather….
