Annecy Opening Ceremonies Day

First flight at Annecy today.  Conditions weren't the best with a fair bit of stability.  Lucky Ollie the bloody bastard, showed us the way.  He launched and flew directly across the lake to the east facing ridge and started climbing straight away.  So Kathryn and I followed and managed to have a nice short practice flight.  I was a little annoyed that they scheduled the mandatory safety briefing for 3pm, knowing that tomorrow is very likely not going to be flyable.  So, we had to land after only an hour or so in the air.  Kind of irritating, but hard to complain when you're in a place as beautiful as this.  

Here's team USA (the girls) and another of Linda, Francoise (France), me, Kathryn (Ireland) and Hadewych (Netherlands) at the opening ceremonies.  Everything took place outside and it was hot, hot, hot, but nice to catch up with old friends we don't see all the time.
