Some hapless sailplane is going to accidentally land there and be torn to shreds by all the Wilgas that want to tow him!

I guess I'll try again in the morning. It should be close to noon there.

Here in New York, when I get home from work it's already dark there. When I get up in the morning all the sailplanes seem to be gone.

We'll just have to hold the next one here!
