It was an slow, somewhat leisurely day at Avenal today.  As it should be this time of year - no one wants to get in a big hurry in the heat.

Rick I. was down from San Jose and got a handful of flights with Alex and with Kevin.  He's making very good progress and will soon have this whole soaring thing figured out.

Quinn M. had some good times with simulated rope breaks and working some awesome dust devils.  (and for good measure, cleaned out the restrooms - thank you, Quinn!)

Alex C. and Carl L. worked on preparations for Carl's upcoming practical test.

Alex and Jim R. completed a flight review. And then Richard W. and Jim replaced a bad valve core and air'ed up a tractor tire and Carl took it out for some mid-afternoon mowing.

Dan G. towed and generally kept the place under control.
