New hangar pictures

Here are a few photo's of the new hangar nearing completion. As you can see the gliders fit very well and there is no need for a " hangar shuffle" in order to get them out. There are doors along each side so there is access to the two rows of gliders. This allows for unrestricted access and fast entry and exit.

What a fantastic Easter!! We got to try out the new U-Hangar this weekend and it only took 15 minutes to get 5 gliders out and to the launch point!! Excellent flying conditions on Fri and Sat. Olav from Germany joined Ray, Greg, David, Tim, Richard, Chris and Ingo for some great soaring. Once again Bill did a great job with towing. Earlier in the week Peter from Lasham UK called in for a visit. Thanks to Chef Tim the BBQ's each evening were delicious!! Just amazing what can be done with a can of beer and a chicken - Yum!!
Nicole and Laurel are also becoming well renowned for their expert salad making skills.
It is so enjoyable sitting under the stars enjoying the company of wonderful friends. Thanks to Hanna for her terrific photos. Happy Easter to all our friends all over the world!!
