Team Challenge - Task 1

At last we get a day without rain.  Unfortunately, the rain of the last few days has made things pretty soggy and, despite the beautiful sunshine, there wasn't a great deal of hope for a decent task.  We woke up to a lovely blanket of clouds in the valley below.  By mid-morning it burned off, but a bit of high stuff moved in preventing as much heating as we probably needed.  Anyway, a good time was had by all with lots of launch (downwind and 90 degree crosswind :-/ ) and landing practice.  

Here's my awesome team - Kip, Stumpy and Michelle.  I'm quite certain Stumpy is the sweetest man on the planet - and certainly the best rigid wing lander I've ever seen.

Night here is so peaceful....and cold!
