Postals 6th May 2007

We had a bigger than usual turnout at BERG for the Postals on Sunday. Not only from BERG members, but the team form MMS came and flew at our field as well because they have been experiencing frequency problems at their field and are nervous to fly there until they have found the cause of the problem.

The team from BERG was Piet, Mike, Chris, Tony, Peter, Evan and Heinrich.
Phil Binet and his wife Mary joined us for the day and Piet soon roped Phil into the role of scorer. Thanks Phil for a job well done!
The weather was lovely, with a gentle breeze all day varying from SE through to NE and the thermals plentiful. All the winches were arranged in a semi circle all facing different directions, from East all the way around to NE. If there was lift there was also sink and you had to time your flight properly to catch the thermals, which some accomplished very well while others struggled. But all in all a very plesent days flying.

Heinrich brought his bike along to retrieve the chute. But the grass make the ride very bumpy and he found it much easier to pay Justice to retrieve the chute for him.

After all the Postal flights were done it was down to some relaxed flying in the last thermals of the day. It's a hard life here in Africa!!!!!
