Sunday 8th june. Met steve j. wing man.Andy H. at the bottom gate Fan g, We walked up from second gate to lower Nth launch,and we could'nt decide to try there, or Nwst side. so i asked andy if he fancied more walking so we tried up by trig. I Took off to see three wings layed out where we were earlier.Simon. Gareth & Steve W. then joined by lots more of our club members. I had three fights,wind all over the place, i did'nt get more than 800ato. the other boys got lot more, it did'nt look like it was getting a lot better,so i decided to try for bottom gate again, it a nice challenge when your low.I left hill 360 ato. and had nice view of centre crai res. and back to bike.

Sunday june 15. After a chat with Andy i  thought we try simons bowl, i thought it might be bit windy,but it nice place to chill anyway.The cloud streets looked promising.We sorted all lifes problems while parawaiting,just as we thinking of walking back down we detected a slight wind drop. & i hate walking down, more than up with kit, so my wing's out of bag prety qwick, and a short evening fly & back to car, to see Andy'h ..'cruise'' in to a perfect spot landing. I'v had lot worse days!

Friday 20 june. After looking at shout box this a.m. Andy planted a seed in my mind to try Nantymoel. I kept checking wind direction on the way over the beacons. looked slightly promising, got the  hill to find 0ne in the air. a model glider.but sun started to fade away, wind w.s.w.14mph.launched into nice smooth & bit thermic air.nearly 800ato.and see Nick&steve turn up.Steve allready done xc from his local hill, he's keen."  I start off back 3/4 of ltr juice left in tank. and just get back home on fumes.  And where was Andy? making sand castles on Rhosilli ." i think. Hope you had good 1  to Andy.

Friday August 8th. Met up with Chris D. at seven sisters at 12.30 we decided to walk up incase we got locked in. Gates are shut around 4pm. Rob mans,is allready on the hill teaching.Conditions very light and slightly off to to the west.  We get a few flights in,and when we both on the deck we see Rob telling one of his pupils chris to practice his big ears because he's getting good lift up to a cloud, & im off like a shot followed by chris D, we only get 1000ato. we both look everywhere for bit more,but it a bit to over developed i think. never mind it nice 2&half hours looking. i starting to like seven sis. the more i fly there.& lm looking forward to going off the back one day.
