Nearly 23.000 spam- messages have been deleted from this blog, since it started, all in the comments “department”. With my hotmail address it is in fact not really necessary to have this possibility for comments, so I might close it!
Not a lot happening, yesterdays weather was superb, today we are back to autumn in the morning but the afternoon was not too bad. On September 11 a lot remembered that dramatic day, some in the USA with a nearly 700 km flight. Nice to see “the dust-devil-trace” from the LS 1 from Mountain Valley all the way up to Truckee close to Minden, with cloud streets till nearly the evening.
1702 points for the winner of the UK mountain comps after 3 days and lots of scrubbed ones. Winner at Aboyne was Phil King with an 18 m. LS 8.
In the past I mentioned that I was asked while being at the JWGC at Rayskala , via a lobby, if I was interested to be editor during the JWGC in Musbach. As I heard nothing officially anymore, I was glad to see that my friend Katja from Finland did a good job during the Pre JWGC in Germany , being also the webmaster overthere. This ” being editor ” is new to her , but she asked for some tips which I gave her with pleasure, so when the competition director decides and…… decides for her, she will be totally ready.
I have 2 other competitions to attend in 2011 and as you know I do only 2 a year.
Just saw a fabulous performance on a RAI TV sport channel, about the Frecce Tricolori. WOW, what a show !!!! They are just amazing!!!!!
Gliders from pilots who are spending their holiday-soaring overseas as in South Africa , Namibia or Australia and New Zealand , have booked a glider or are busy with the very last preparations to send their glider. I noticed that a Cirrus flew a nice 389 km flight in SA, so the beginning is there. In a few weeks those pilots are going to “top” the OLC list.
Places as Bitterwasser, Pokweni, Kiripotib and Corowa, Narromine and Tocumwal are finishing their jobs to be good hosts again! By the way , Australia, also Tocumwal and Corowa, got quite some rain and a lot of places really look nice and green or yellow from the conola fields, yes it is that time of the year. The well known Murray River has a high water-level at the moment.
Congratulations to the Argentinian hockey girls winning the WHC. “We ” lost as they played more effective , not really so much better.
As I said not a lot happening, so see you next Wednesday, cheers Ritz
