Region 3 Contest Harris Hill

In July of 2019, I ventured to Harris Hill, located in Elmira, NY.  I volunteered to take QQ up to this regional contest to support the US Juniors.  The SSA allows for many members to fly with experienced cross country pilots (I guess that's me), at one regional contest per year.

Wave Soaring January 2019

2018 was a terrible soaring year.  Washington, DC recorded more rain than any other year in history.... This past weekend was hopefully a signal that things are getting better.  Skyline Soaring Club put together an ad-hoc operation to fly on the 7th of January 2019, and it turned out to be a great soaring day.

Mifflin 20 Meter Multi-Seat Nationals Contest Day 1, try 2

JP Stewart and I are a team at the first 20 meter multi seat national glider competition.  I arrived on Sunday to very stormy weather. 
The practice day was cancelled due to rainy weather.  The first day was cancelled due to no lift, and an incoming thunderstorm. We had the chance to test out the water ballast system for QQ, calculating how much water we could put in it. Even though a few gliders launched on Monday,  was threatened by incoming thunderstorms.
