High Hopes in the French Alps

More Comps, and Early Learning

Dennis, not having any trouble climbing out on my little wing...

Bit slow on the blogging front at the moment…. so much happening, busy, busy busy! haven’t taken many pictures either…

We’ve had beginners staying the last couple of weeks, and the last three days we had a couple of fun loving Aussies here, enjoying some big climbs and fast descents!

This weekend gone, has been another competition weekend, not sure who organised this one, but it was another ‘A’ league arrangement, although it was on a

Friendly, 'A' League, Comp Specks!

bit of a shoestring inasmuch as there were no retrieves. Tom Payne was participating as we saw him briefly on launch,  but I can’t find any ‘results’ anywhere. It was a ‘friendly’ comp apparently. It turned out very busy, on Saturday and Dennis was flying my glider again… just checking out the lighter weight issues, so that left me gliderless… holding the car keys!

I had an interesting Friday morning spending time with Roland and Audrey from the A’ccro d’air school, where I was observing their instruction techniques… we had three students on a course with them whilst they were staying here, so it was beneficial for us to share the differences in teaching vocabulary! Dennis was with the Aussies, they were considering a flight out of Chamonix, but the wind was too strong,  they thoroughly enjoyed a good three days of high flying fun though!

Before our new arrivals, Matthew successfully completed his CPC, and would have liked some photos, I did manage to take a few… they’re on there way to you Matthew, You should find them in your inbox soon.
