Saturday was too nice to stay inside and self quarantine besides, even the guys from Illinois that are on “lockdown” are permitted to go outside and recreate, we just need to practice proper Covid-19 precautions. So, our small group of less than 10 people all stayed outside and at least 6’ away from each other in the sky (and on the ground too).
We tried out Mariyan’s modified winch and made some additional mods during the day too. By dark it was working pretty good and Dimitry was able to get quite high on tow. Just a few more tweaks and it will be dialed in.
Jeff and I rigged up his new reserve.
Conor added a bunch of flights and worked on his motor-on and motor-off landing accuracy. Just 5 left for him to reach the magical 25th flight.
Alex made a couple longer unsupervised flights until his hands got too cold.
Adam and Ken played with their new wings. Yes, Ken got another wing.
Robert gave a little flying demonstration for his best friend and his daughter.
All in all a great day playing outside in the sun. A great way to escape from all the craziness going on right now too.
Unfortunately the governor just announced that all non-essential businesses close starting Tuesday. So today looks like the last day Madcity Paragliding will be actively teaching for a while. Hopefully this will be sorted out sometime soon and we can get back to our regular shenanigans. Stay healthy and keep flying!
