I was pleased that Adam sent me another post. First, he saved me some work Smejúci sa and especially it is great to look at the actions here, at our airport from someone "outside" Usmiaty


3rd May, weather for ducks. We all woke to the sound of rain on the roof or tent this morning, strange feeling that one.

On one hand we all want to go flying, learn more, play over the beautiful land of Slovakia, improve our skills, have fun; on the other hand, we're all on holidays, everyone seems relaxed & ok with it.

Time to enjoy the day with old & new friends, talk some tall tales.

Hello, we are bringig short description of the yesterday's task directly from one of our competitors Adam Woolley from Australia

Task 2, a 2:45hr AAT was set to the South, a good decision by the organisers with the wind & for the conditions.

We launched into a changing sky, easy for some at the beginning, tough for those at the back, many needing relights.

The visibility was poor today making long term decisions hard, but it was ok with many 1.5-3ms climbs about.

Areas of easy conditions were found, some caution was required though to stay high to make long glides.

The final two sectors proved tricky with the terrain & blue skies. Many lost time here.

Like always, it's good to be home! :)
