Prize giving and hungover Sunday for many.

17 plots made it to goal at 96km.  The prize giving was a big affair amongst hoards of town folk on the main stage, during a rest period for the Band.  Plenty of drunken  revelers.  In fact, most of the pilots on the goal bus were well pissed by 11pm when we arrived, and by 2am at the prize giving…. a little more.

My thanks for all the pilots in the German Open for putting up with some difficult days with great humour.  Below are a few photos of the prize giving.

Sunday was a trip to the airport for many, myself included to collect 5 pilots for this week.  Amongst them Colin out for his 4th week this year.  Some nice evening soaring for most of the group.
