Evening Party – Thurs 16th

Progress on DUK (K8), Annual Inspection pretty much complete as far as it can go without rigging.

A quick trial to check that the recent welding on the trailer had been a success. Thanks to Seb & co for this.

An enormous debt of gratitude is owed to Tim Macfad for repairing the canopy on the other K8 (CMN). Without Tim’s excellent repair this glider would have been written off.

Thanks also go to Robin Birch at Aston Down for the loan of their “spare” K8 canopy that would have given us options if Tim had been unable to glue the crack.

It’s fairly obvious that some of our members are not treating the club kit with respect. This whole incident could have been avoided if CMN has been DI’ed thoroughly over the few last weeks.
