Region 4 South - Afternoon report

The weather report says: no flying today, and probably none tomorrow.

Another front is slowly approaching New Castle, pushing a large area of rain toward us.  The cool air behind this front is likely to produce some very good soaring conditions, probably starting Sunday and lasting several days.  Unfortunately, our contest ends Saturday.

Morale here remains rather good, thanks in part to a fine meal served last night by Thecla and Lanier Frantz in their home overlooking this scenic airfield.  A pig is already cooking for tonight's meal.

But the 2013 New Castle contest looks as if it has to go down as a losing struggle against malevolent weather forces.
