Big Black Clouds

This afternoon’s flight was cancelled. At the briefing they declared a Hesitation Waltz and a Pilot Declared Goal. However they explained that there was a lot of big storm cells forming to the north of Battle Creek that they were keeping an eye on.

So we all jumped into our vans and drove up to a common launch area to the North of town and by the time we got there, they had put up the black flag which means the flight was cancelled. there was too much risk of wind gusts and turbulence from these massive clouds. So we are able to now have an early night and get ready for another morning (the weather is looking great).

They have posted the provisional results for this morning’s flight. I did pretty well on the first (806 points), awesome on the second (978 points) and pretty crap on the third (414 points). So 2198 points for the first flight is pretty good and there are plenty of more flights to come.

So now we are going to take advantage of the early night and get some sleep.
