2019 Standard and Sports Class Nationals - 8/22/2019 Practice Day 1, Evening Report

Dawn broke today with lightening, thunder and rain.  But, it was the first day of our contest after a brief (by Biblical standards) rain delay, so we planned to support Practice Day 1.

The Pilot’s meeting started promptly at 10:00 am with an intro by Contest Manager Chuck Lohre followed by a safety briefing by Contest Director John Lubon.  The weather report was not favorable and the ceiling was 500 feet AGL and broken all day. 

We weighed a couple of gliders, told some lies and welcomed tardy pilots as they arrived.  Tomorrow is PD 2 and the weather looks promising.
