Region 6 North Super Regional - Practice Day

Friday May 25 practice day.  24 gliders took advantage of the practice day and took tows.  CD Bob Fidler called a simple MAT task with a single assigned turnpoint, Greenville, and class minimum times.  Nick Bonnaire (CAN) won the FAI and Ron Clarke (USA) won sports by rather large margins.

Conditions this day were blue and fairly weak (1-2 knot climbs) with an inversion at around 4k.  3 or 4 gliders landed out.  The day itself was absolutely beautiful and a very relaxed atmoshphere was enjoyed by all..  We had numerous spectators and people stopping in to check out the action from road that passes near the airport.

Dinner was called at Olivera's.  Some great camping parties where enjoyed by the 45 competitors, family and friends to close out the evening.
