Following the excellent Safety Meeting and a bit of snow on Saturday, Sunday was finally a beautiul spring day at I99. Many members took advantage of the clear blue skies, unlimited visibility and calm winds to kickoff the soaring season. Tod Rutledge served as informal crew chief, Ed Escalon provided tows and many members assisted with other crew activities. The unofficial count was 22 launches. There were 5 instructors on the field, and at least 3 members completed flight reviews in addition to a number of other pilots making initial season flights with an instructor.
