Air Cadets from the local Devon and Somerset Wing have finally beaten the weather and completed a lovely evening flying session, writes Jill Harmer.

Some of the Air Cadets were helpers at our Competition Enterprise last year.

Meanwhile, in other gliding club news, congratulations to Tom Sides who has passed all the BGA tests and joins the DSGC team of instructors.

On Friday, we held a special trial lesson voucher day to catch up on bookings that had been hit by a run of poor weather. Amongst other trial lessons, brothers John and Mike Reed enjoyed flights and then son Tom Reed from Exeter University decided to join in the fun.
