Freedom’s Wings Large Group on June 28 RESCHEDULED to July 5

Post by Cole Bishop » Thu Jun 27, 2019 2:58 pm

We will need to CANCEL tomorrow’s flight due for to inclement weather and high winds. It is being rescheduled for July 5th with a rain date of July 12th.

Assistance will be appreciated. Pilots and helpers are needed. Most of our guests are ambulatory.

Your support would be greatly appreciated. Lots of flying to be done.

Good decision - aside from the wind gusts and the potential for thunderstorms mid-afternoon, the combined temperature and humidity (35C) by mid-day will make it very draining.

July 5th is also the scheduled Bronze Badge course, so I will have a conflict (subject to what Tim asks me to teach and when) as may others, but a good deciaion nonetheless.

Better is it had been made earlier though :roll:

In the soar tails the bronze badge course is set to begin on the 6th and is also not on the club event calendar. If I understand it correctly.

Also the late final decision was based on this was an already previous postponed flight and due to the unreliable weather forecasts this season.

Everything happens for a reason.

The dates Tim gave me may be wrong. I understood it to be Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So there is an issue with dates. Tim, will you please clarify? 5, 6 and 7 or 6, 7 and 8.
