Infomail 3 - 20 July 2012

Weather forecast
For the Weekend:

I uploaded the Maps to the gallery:

In Short: The weather is bad and as soon it starts to be good, there will be too much wind in most areas of Switzerland. If you really like to fly, best would probably be (Sunday) Zinal, maybe Verbier.

For Monday, training day:
Its difficult to make a prognosis for the wind for Disentis. If I would have to make one: Its flyable early (take off at 11-12 hour). Later the wind will pick up.
If it is not flyable at Disentis, there is a good soaring possibility nearby.

For Tuesday, first task:
Looks good! Whow.

Next info
Next info will be Sunday evening about the training day. Remember: Pls register for the training day with a short mail to me (up to now only 1 pilot).

At the moment 76 pilots are registered. 80-90 pilots would be perfect for this area and a good size for a nice championship.

We managed to negotiate a good price in the Hotel Baur:

The Hotel is right next to the cable car and 5 minutes from the headquarter (by foot)... It is a 3* hotel with big rooms, nice breakfast-buffet and a little bit of wellness.
