Over at Bridal it was kinda shady at first but the clouds eventually broke and it became very sweet. Windy at Ludwig but otherwise uneventful...Alex reported seeing a speedflyer really high at Killarney and a helicopter in the area beforehand so we figure he must have launched from Cheam when the clouds broke.

Toplanded Upper Bridal and had a nice siesta watching the gliders come up from Lower Bridal. At one point I was searching for the memorial propellor from the plane crash a few years ago...I eventually found the top 3" of it sticking out of the snow...the rest is still buried. Lots of snow still behind launch!
Nothing epic XC-wise or altitude-wise (1700+m)...just a nice "regular" Bridal flight during a typical summer day.
