Tomorrow, Tuesday looks good for Lawrencetown slope.
Winds 22 kph directly on slope. Chris D, Al Coolen, John Walker and I are going out about 11 AM.

Morning was overcast and fine until I got to within a mile of Lawrecetown when I hit the "Big Fog" for which Lawrencetown is famous.
Chris Dean, Richard Giles, John Walker and Steve Wiper turned up.
Wind was fairly strong right on the slope. We all had a go, but models were disappearing in the fog and I gave up after about ten minutes airborne.
Chris had his new aerobatic AHI sloper which Richard flew well. Chris also flew his Radian Pro for quite a long time (don't know how he could see it at times). Overall despite the thick fog we got some flying in.
