Cucco Pre-worlds Day 1

They've got a big gymnasium here for HQ and all the briefings.  It's great for days like today when we're just waiting for conditions to improve.  A few future world champions are running around playing soccer  (can you guess which past world champions these guys belong to?) and we're waiting for the 11am re-briefing.  At this point, the wind direction and velocity are all wrong - NW at about 30km.  Cloudbase is also well below the top of the mountain.  With any luck - actually, it might take a lot - cloudbase will rise and the wind will lighten up and switch around a bit.  I suppose might be asking a bit much :-/
