First Flight!

I had a rather full day, which is unusual for me. Started off by going to the Efthimues for Worship Practice. I then ate lunch at their house and proceeded up to up to Harris Hill to the soaring club. It was a rather cloudy, and very windy day, but never the less, I was able to take my first flight with Ryan! And it was one of the coolest things ever! There were really fast winds coming across the ridges and we only had to be towed 500 ft before we let go. And it was awsome! The wind made it like a rollercoaster and whenever we made a really sharp turn, the G's (which I didn't think gliders could produce for some reason) made my head feel like it was going to explode! But it was lots of fun! After that, we went out for pizza with the Jurors and I had a good talk with Chris and all of them.

That's all I have time to say, so see you tomorrow.
