I think the change in the layout of the aircraft before the start was a good idea! Starts runs smoothly and without any troubles, despite the weakering wind. The only pitty thing was the fact that both of our aero club dynamics had trouble with propeller adjustment. It's just a minor malfunction and both machines are in fully ready again.

If you follow glidertracker.org, you know that many club class contestants have already reached a second turning point and are heading back to our Prievidza airport. We must prepare for their arrivals.

Today, we have changed the grid development and the startup system. 15m and the combi class will start in parallel. This would mean that most of the bigger aircraft of the combi class would be dragged into the air by the "Čmeliak" towing plane. This should ensure a smoother process of take-offs and also increase start-up safety.

From the morning there is almost a clear sky above Prievidza, and it probably will stay the whole day. According to the forecast, there will be no, or very little cumulus cluds today, so it will be more difficult for the competitors to find the optimal track. The first start is scheduled to 11:30

Good morning! Grid will be as yesterday on RWY 04
