The above picture is Fred on the S. Launch waiting to pounce. After dive bombing him, I went out expecting to commit a top landing, but Steve and I began circling which inspired him to join us.

Lots of us out there. Guessing 6 HG’s and maybe 15 PG’s. Great fun. But it got busy when sink cycles came and we all scrapped the same lift!
Dennis Pagen was out with us using Sparky’s Sport2. I shared a couple thermals with him at the same altitude which was awesome. Might be him in the above picture. He got a great 1:25 flight, getting low and climbing back up many times.
Alex got a cool shot of my dear mistress, the Sport2:
Everyone seemed to have a great time. There was a great looking cloudstreet connecting to Boulder but the wind was too South to launch in the morning. Then it got too N to launch at times. Then, I think the shear layer combined with the extra moisture caused it to just blow up everywhere. Weird day. XC skies was saying 14k useable lift, but I don’t think anyone got over 8 or 9k.
BTW, the day before had this crazy looking Mammata clouds above my house…. Ghost Mammata…
