The versatile BERG team.

The BERG cricket team in action

Another ball gets dispatched to the boundary.

Once again we had a good thermal day on the BERG field on Sunday. The day started of slightly overcastted and damp after Saturday night’s good rain. So the morning lift was slow to build up but the fresh breeze that we had soon blew away the clouds and by midday we were experiencing good lift.

Like last Sunday we had a good turn out of BERG members. My 4 year old Tsotsi (No 1) is now working overtime to help training the new members. With the condition improving as the afternoon went by, I stayed longer than I normally do and it was just amazing to see the late afternoon activities happening on the field.

Tsotsi no 1, now working over time, this time Lorain is hanging on for dear life.

Gordon arrived at around 3.45 PM and showed us his new lightweight winch that he purchased from Ricky Mitchell in Welkom.(Under 10 Kg). Also of interest was the 2 Meter Fling that Gordon flew.

The Para-gliders men turned up and as soon as they were air born and disappeared over the horizon, their kids promptly started a local cricket game. Gordon entertained Zimmy and Wolfgang (with his J3 electric Cub), sitting in their chairs, smoking cigars passing on comments. By the time I had everything packed up and ready to go home it was 6 PM.
