2017 15 Meter, Open, and Standard Class Nationals - Day canceled again (

Good afternoon from rainy Cordele.

After having to cancel the day yesterday just before the launch because of weather conditions, the CD had to do the same today.

Last evening around 5 PM we all gathered under the tents at the airport to celebrate Shawn McGowin's solo and enjoy some margaritas and apetizers. It was a very fun afternoon, as Shawn had his solo flight and we all enjoyed seeing him launch towed by his father. He had a great landing and as we were taking pictures, one of the tow pilots tried to surprise Shawn with an ice bucket. Shawn turned just in time to avoid most of it, but his yonger brother, Alex, whom is 6 years old, got soaked and started crying as we were all laughing. It was a hilarious situation for all of us except little Alex.

This morning after the meeting Sarah Kelly Arnold shared with us some of her flight traces from the WWGC and answered questions and discussed her strategy.

You can read here a synopsis of the meeting - http://ussoaringteams.org/wwgc-team-talk-with-sarah/.

We are having a nice group dinner tonight and we all look forward to some flying tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
