Well done to all ... it looked like "fun" conditions.
We missed Eric and Sean at Monto for the thermal comp but it looks like they got a better offer
Eric and Sean, were you Larrikin virgins???
I'd be intereseted to hear your impressions of the slope?

It really does look like a perfect arvo for Beechmont. I'll probably head down and get there at 2:30pm or so. Great weather for Vector, Willow, etc etc. Might take the super-heavy Scratcho down and spend some time dialling it in on the frontside.

Nice arvo at Beechmont. I got there at 3pm, and Dave Larrikin turned up soon after, then Tim and also it was great to finally meet Jason. He had actually been there for hours and had a Multiplex Easy glider shed a wing and spiral into the scrub, still unrecovered!

The big news was that Dave maidened the Warbit. Just a CG tweak and it flew nicely, in less air than Dave had expected it to need. It was quite a light air afternoon, but lots of fun.

There's a decent southerly blowing on the GC, so I'm gonna head to Beechmont for the day if anyone else is keen.

How did it go at Beechmont Sean ? I went up to the Knob with my new second hand 4m scaly . Lift was very patchy.
