Friday 28 Aug, Day 4 close

Well, it was a lovely morning for launching into  a cumulus laden sky , typical of so many that we have here at Wolds GC at this time of year......

Day 4 Dusk


.... but sometime in between it had all been very different. The first sign that something more significant than a modest shower had passed by was when Bernie Svenson came into the clubhouse looking as if he was warming up for a wet T-shirt contest. For a moment the awful possibility that someone, having seen Steve Wilkinson's bronzed torso in a previous posting, really had arranged auditions for a Wolds GC "Calendar Boys" fund raising publication seemed to have become a reality. Meanwhile gliders were disappearing from Spot the Gliders! at an alarming rate. For a while after dinner (or lunch, as they say at L*sh*m) Pock looked like about the last place you'd want to be heading for as the rain passed through. At 15.30, when your correspondent set off to look for a glider in some very long grass at Leconfield MoD base  (sorry, no photos, Official Secrets Act and all that) only a handful were still airborne. But by then, apart from HNA, all the gliders that were to return to Pocklington having completed tasks were already there......
