Sunday wasn't the optimal day for soaring but with a limited turnout we managed to get 8 rounds completed by 2 PM.  We had an eclectic group of 2 meter ships, a windy-ish day and about near zero thermal activity between round 1 and 5. Nice

The practice flights were all filled with plentiful light lift and then squat.

With five pilots and 0 extra timers we improvised by using the talking timer and one timer handled two pilots.

Now, to end a short boring monolog and to get to the results.
