lift everywhere.......

For a while. Went to our club field today for the first time this year to fly. My baby Cub had some fuel issues so I drug out Ye Old TS-1. First launch, no second launch I caught some lift. Rose quickly to 500 or 600 feet. I did a few loops and rolls on the way down to about 100 feet and did it all over again except the loops, rolls and inverted flying was done ON THE WAY UP I played around for about 10 or 12 minutes while all the guys "couldn't believe" a glider could do that. It didn't seen to matter where I flew there was lift. Our field is 600 feet long and there was lift from end to end! I had the field to myself for the show, but landed cause I didn't want to hog the airspace.

About a half hour later there was nothing but sink, Well I'm guessing you good guys could find some lift but I'm not that good

A VERY good day today
