Task 6

Epic day on course today.  The first half was slow and difficult, but things picked up in a huge way.  Pilots were reporting lift over 15,000ft.  The first gaggle coming in had a 50km final glide for 45 minutes....they were complaining of freezing fingers - hard to imagine with the 108 degree record high temperature on the ground.

Only seven flexies in goal, but several landed just short (probably about 2 kilometers or less).  Mitch Shipley had his first day win!!  Brian and Steve in the Swift class made it in.  Steve said that was his longest flight ever - both time and distance - and his highest altitude.
