Plenty of accomplishments to celebrate this week: Joe Batwinis got his private glider add-on rating, sixteen year old Robles Fisher passed his initial check ride (second teenager this month), and one of our tow pilots, Justin Gillen flew his first solo in a glider.

We’d been mentioning recently how our usual ‘monsoon’ season of comparative humidity and cloudiness seemed to have never come in late July or August, then sure enough, in the first five days of September, (today) will be the fourth with modest buildups and isolated fair weather showers. It’s always interesting to watch them grow from the southeast, into a westerly breeze, and leave us pleasantly cooler right at the hours of maximum heating.
