Nevada’s Skies Start Cooking…

Stewart Crane from Air Sailing Nevada sent his club’s news to Soaring Café: “So far, Chukar is 5th in the US for today and Dragonfly is 10th! Here are pictures of them after landing and a group picture with Mark and Skimmer. Neita says her feet got cold, so she is open to suggestions on boots and heat pads. I was just amazed that not only did Chukar fly that far but that he made it back. Do you realize how short the wings are on a 1-26?”
