Three of us met Saturday in Randolph. It was ODed and blowing over the back. None of which was in the forecast.
After a big cloud shaded out the valley for a while, things turned on Sunday afternoon. Five SLC pilots showed up and one more Colorado pilot too. Nine HG got roughly two hours each of fun flying in light thermals and ridge lift. Sometime during our flight, three PGs joined in the fun. Smiles all around.
Three of us stayed to fly Monday. We woke to 100% cloud cover but by 1pm it was mostly clear and starting to cycle straight in. But it was too light. No one wanted a sledder so we ended up breaking camp and driving home late Monday.
Today was looking really good but we would have had only one car and two pilots. Oh well.
The mosquitos were not bad until just about sunset. Then it was no fun in the LZ. There were some in the quarry for about an hour after sunset as well.
Gators is no more. It was finally sold in February. It was fixed up a bit and it is now called “Crawford Trough”. I think I’ll keep calling it Gators.
