Saturday proved to be an excellent day, though not the 'day of days' they seemed to have in England. A good number of soaring flights with high cloudbases and people flying for 2 hours and more. Phil had a good wander around the Spey valley:

On Sunday we had a poignant moment between the frequent showers, when Robert and Jim Tait had a memorial flight for the late Bill and Margaret Hill. They were stalwarts from the early days of the club and we still fly on the launch that Bill supervised in its construction. Jim summarised their invaluable contribution to the early days of HGC. In line with t he Hills' own request and in the presence of their daughter and son-in-law, their ashes were scattered from the windsock hill. Happy landings, Bill !
