Soaring Report Thursday 10/12/17

Hi All, Only 5 flights today.  The clouds finally moved out late morning so only some wind to deal with, but it was pretty much down the runway to 20 degrees off, so not too bad. A wind breaker felt good though. First up was Andy with Whit followed by Steve R. for a back seat check ride, with Jaime in the front seat. Next was Lance Olson, a power pilot out of flying for years who did his first FAST kit flight with Jaime. Sounds like he loved it. Then Pat did a solo followed by my hanger flight.  Steve Stevens, and Whit did the towing. Thanks Tom
