Landings to the airfield are in full rush! Today was the last turnpoint south of the airport, so the planes landing on the RWY 04. Sky is almost covered with the middle-height clouds, so I'm sure the "homecomming" is difficuilt at this time! Check the results at soaringspot.com
A nice moment made our day during a short break before expected landings. A wife of one of the racers came around us, saying to the director of the competition: "Why did you send them away for so long?! My husband should have been home already!"
Start line for combi class was open at 15:04
Also 15m class is completely in the air. Their start line will be opened at 14:26
The weather gets better, and several nice cumulus clouds are visible around Prievidza and Bojnice. Only one club-class glider returned, others waiting for the tape to be open in the surrounding lifts.
Start line for club class will be open at 13:57

First start is postponed to 12:15
Above Prievidza, but also in most of Slovakia, the sun is already overheating the humid air, which is left here by the yesterday's frontal system. Therefore there are high chances that the conditions for thermal flying will be very good. That's why there is a racing task for all the classes. The first start is scheduled to 12:00
Good morning! The grid will be on RWY 22 again. You can start transporting your gliders there since 8:15
