Forbes Wrap-Up

We're cozy in our lovely cabin at Mt. Beauty now.  The Forbes Flatlands comp ended well...particularly well for some.  I've been praying for a month for bad weather on the last day of the comp because Carl had to head home a day early for work.  What luck!  After nine straight days of flying, pilots were exhausted and voted for a rest the last day as the wind was a bit high and the tow paddock was a bit rough.  Turns out it was very rough.  A monster thermal came through and chewed up and spit out one of the dragonflies.  Luckily, there wasn't too much damage and a collection at the closing party raised nearly enough to cover the repairs.  Most everyone gathered at the town pool to stay cool in the 100+ degree heat.

Jonny boy won again.  Not unexpected from my point of view.  Attila was second and Zac came in third.  It was so fun to see him doing so well!

Shedsy, Zac and I made a leisurely drive to Mt. Beauty today.  We quickly got out of the heat and into the nice cool of the mountains.  The weather forecast isn't looking fantastic, but surely it will improve.

Shedsy whipped up a lovely pasta dinner.  This is such a nice relaxing place so far and our cabin is great!
