Well, another year has bitten the dust, so just how well did you do on the flying stakes? Our man Terry Shields keeps a detailed log of all his aeronautical excursions, just for the fun of it he assures us. So, once again (just for the fun of it) here`s the bare bones of his 2017 exploits.
Not bad you may say, but very lean pickings compared to the bumper year in 2010 when he managed 139 outings!
Once again a poor year for slope soaring, but I would guess that age and enthusiasm have had a bearing on the above figures, like Terry, most of us preferring the comforts of Kerloch on a calm day. Interestingly, our man travelled a staggering 3,000 miles to throw some assorted bits of balsa / depron into the air and decanted around 180 cups of tea from his thermos in the process ...... no wonder he has to “pee” so often!
Have a look at your own stats and see if you can beat that!
