High Hopes in the French Alps


Last couple of days… more of the same.

Although yesterday we did have some snow, a massive fall of 0.1mm no less!!

Transfers are keeping us busy as well as the chalet so we are reasonably occupied. It’s that time of year again when the fortunate flyers have winged their way across the Atlantic Ocean to Columbia to fly in the 2011 Open Rolda Columbian Championship in Roldanillo followed by the World Cup.  Our local boy Mathieu Vermeil is attending again, Denis Cortella not so this time it seems.

I had a drive out to Sallanches where I caught a glimpse of a very distinctive glider, that belonging to Pierre Perrin, he was doing ok, managing to maintain for a while. There was one other glider maintaining at Plaine Joux, it was an extremely cold day though. We have seen the sun, although not for very long… was covered again quite quickly by that cloudy stuff. Wish these clouds held some snow though, instead of just blocking the sun!

Transfer schedules need doing as well as other stuff…. never a dull drums moment… I wish!

I did want to put a link up to the activities in Columbia but the connection is kaput at the moment.
