3rd day at the Nardt worlds

Today we started off with fog again. So with a delay we carried on where we left the previous day. The livestream centre seemed to have been battered by last nights rain, leaving them no option other than setting everything up in a van. Only later in the morning could Martin Weberschock begin with the commentary. At one stage he required a list of the line up for speed, and waiting in the ready box I handed him my copy. Big mistake!! He used the opportunity to question me and have me greet everybody in my three languages. Hope you all had a laugh when you heard it.
Anyway things seemed to improve slightly for us, but yet again Craig was robbed of good air in his speed run! His duration was great, except he fluffed his landing, but his distance made up for it. Michelle likewise did well in here distance. Even Nigel gave a good showing.

Today we stopped at 19h00, to make provision for an outing to a nearby powerstation and some dinner and entertainment. Needless to say, we did not opt to go to the powerstation, as we were not permitted to fly our planes off the tall building :-) . Instead we had dinner and a couple of Pilsners.

Now, before I fall asleep on the job, I'll sign out and get back to you all tomorrow.

Jochen I must commend you on the great work you are doing in managing the team and writing this blog. Keep it up! It's great to watch you guys on the flight line (I missed your interview, Bummer! I would loved to have seen that) But seeing the Team closest to the camera is great! Give us a wave every now and again!
Keep up the good work and best of luck with the rest of the comp!
