First, congratulations to Don Schneider who passed his glider check ride last weekend!  (More coming soon…)

Although there was plenty of soarable lift last week, it was again disappointing for cross-country pilots, with conditions kicking in too late for fast starts.  At the risk of getting punked once more by reality, here’s another foolhardy prediction:  Hotter each day this week, with thermal conditions peaking on Saturday and Sunday, and winds fairly light except perhaps late afternoon.  If that’s not how it turns out, well maybe we’ll have a chance to learn something.
