April 9: Spring Day, New Glider at Taylor

The forecast looked like a nice SW day, perfect for Taylor. Instead, we got one of the switchiest days I recall there. Lots of hang waiting as we watched the winds go up, go down, go left, go right. We did fly, though. John had three students: Andrew on a Condor, Eric on his Falcon 4, and Igor on his Horizon. Stefan was there with his PG. I got in three flights on a new (to me) Falcon 3. The Pulse is now retired and en route to KHK, hoping to become an instructor's dune glider. I need to get my sea legs back; those carries back up the hill wore me out! It will get better.
