Canungra Day 2: Wind over the back

The sky was still overcast from the front, but we were positive and wanted to try a task from Tambo. Four guys got off, but only Glen got up and flew around for a while. We got stuck in a tail wind on take off and had to cancel the day.
A few stories from the briefing which is at 8.30 every morning:
Len Paton had survived quite a severe car crash and hopes he can fly despite his ribs still hurting. Glad he is still with us!
Flocky had brought lots of pink ribbons to raise money for the "pink week", the breast cancer foundation. All cars and gliders are decorated now! It´s the time of year when even some houses in Canungra are painted pink! It´s great to be part of it and help a good cause!
A pilot from western Australia owns a seafood company and brought lots of fresh oysters over. The money from the oyster sale will also be donated. He showed us how to open them and explained the different qualities. Nope I didn´t try one, I am vegetarian...
I stayed with my friend Sue up on Tamborine mountain and enjoyed a really spectacular sunset!
