Epic stuff and Andrew comes back

A great forecast today and most of the pilots dotted around Avila, with Richard the furthest at the windmills at 70km.  Great

The Goya fiesta starts today, and lots of competitors are arriving.  The take off is not finally finished (will get topsoil and grass over winter), but is still pretty good and BIG.

I flew the Artic 2 today, which was nice.  I am going to have a go at flying the sports class in the comp, and hopfully a number of tandems with the press and TV.

    Great to see Andrew out and looking in good spirits. That’s nearly a whole week extra holiday! The lengths some people will go to! By the way, have you told Andrew that we were about to climb out and get to Avila too before he tried to knock down that tree.

    is that thing on the table what caused the eye injury?
    and what is it anyway?!!!

    Great to see you looking well Andrew. Have a speedy recovery. Unlike Jonathan, I wasn’t going to mention that I was in the best thermal and flight position I had been in all week, not that it was hard to improve on my pathetic attempts up to that point. Still made up for it on Saturday with a good flight … finally. Its all the wife’s fault, as Steve pointed out, for not letting me out enough.

    Take care and as soon as I get the bits of Jon I will put them all onto a DVD along with Peter’s and Martin’s stuff.

    Thanks for the frequent blog info. I’m really looking forward to read all about the British-Dutch Open.
    Cheers from the US
