Sunday 23rd November

Tomorrow is another day!

The Contest Director, weather-man and task-setter (the others involved deny any responsibility) again broke bread at an early hour, immersed in a world of technology and local knowledge.

The day looked promising (the computers said so) and a modest but appropriate task was set - a 3.0 hour AAT for 18m class/Fresh Grade and the same task but 2.5 hours for Club Class/Juicing Grade.
AAT distances were 155km minimum, 256km point-to-point, and 364km maximum.

They should have looked out of the window!

Pilots gridded at 1130 under thick pre-frontal cirrus with no noticeable sun. They soon started looking for the weather-man and task-setter.
Even task "B" didn't allay fears of a violent revolt.
Sanity prevailed when all tasks were abandoned.
The good news is that the weather-man and task-setter escaped unscathed, and after all, tomorrow is another day.
