2006 Flyin (Friday) - 29th September 2006 - View the entire paragliding news archive
Powered Paragliding Ontario Flyin 2006

Some wind, some rain, some flying...


At 4:30pm on Friday night it was already clear from the forecast that the weekend was going to include some showers and wind, but we decided to go ahead and see what the weather had to offer.

Rainbow


First to arrive at the Sodom Road field was Matt. He managed to take off with a broken toe!

Matt chancing his luck by taking a peek at the American border. Lucky not to get shot down!

Matt was really making good speed and was easily able to out fly me.

Once the light was gone we all landed and started making preparations to camp at Sodom Road

Dan was extremely well prepared. He had brought enough supplies to feed a small army. Within a couple of hours we had a small refugee camp set up

Dan brought his camping supplies


Not only did Dan bring tons of camping supplies, he also brought a mobile kitchen and was soon preparing dinner for us all. There are no shortcuts with Dan. The fries were chipped and fried at the field. Andre was responsible for illumination.

These fries were delicious. Thanks Dan!

Chips (fries) cooking at the field


Hungry faces look on as Dan removes the fries from the oil. We were soon tucking into Fajitas and fries... and the beer was soon flowing.

Jason (my brother) had given me a drunken haircut when we went to Annecy in the summer. Andre reckoned there was nothing to it, so I got my mop chopped, again.

Haircut1


Look at the concentration on Andre's face. A true professional at work.

Haircut2


Now, I'm wondering how bad the back looks. Judging by Andre's expression, it's not good, but it can't be any worse than the front (I hope).

Haircut3


So, that was Friday's fun. I'll post Saturday's write up in the next few days.
