I also wrote to you about Marina`s husband Giorgio Galetto from Italy, visiting Australia. He will be here to do performance coaching in december and January and he will ” Coach the coaches”.
Unfortunately Marina could not come with him, she takes care of their daughter and is very busy with the preparations for the Junior World Comps in Rieti in 2007 together with Leonardo Brigliadori, who will be the director. Their website will be up and running soon.
Giorgio will coach and fly on different places and for Australian Magazine Readers they can find the info on page 30 and 31 from October`s Magazine.I am sure there will be also some info on the GFA website.
I know Giorgio and he is the most lovely person , a great pilot and he was World champion in 1999 and he and Marina live for our gliding sport. Enjoy his lectures, briefings and flying to the fullest!!!!Wish I was still here in OZ, to listen to him , but my departure is already on the 20thiest of November.
The wind is GONE!!!!! Finally. We had up to 50 knots wind here. Today is sunny and warm up to 28 in the shade , no clouds but on the ground we could see good thermal activity.It is dryer then dry, which is very bad for the economy as lot`s of farmers suffer. The weed is so bad that farmers put their cattle in to eat it.Pretty sad!!!
It is 4 PM now and Eddie started at 9 and is still busy. I just see him pass by! Good to see that atleast “something” is flying here.
