it can rain in Europe!

Wow, we've got the very first day below 25 degrees and with something wet coming from above. And it doesn't want to stop! Anyway, it gives us time to finish off with all the paperwork, documents and other formalities. It is all looking very good and we are ready except for few minor things that will not stop anyone from flying.

Cmelak super tug!

Go Craig! (he finished 6th that day averaging well over 130 kph)

Yesterday was a very tricky day as a convergence line was approaching bringing showers and thunderstorms which cut off the way back home for some pilots. Ben tried to put the engine up but it turned out that the engine battery was flat and he ended up landing 50 km out. Gonski and myself went to pick him up. Great paddock but a bit soft and muddy after the rain ... the boys had to push me in the little VW Golf and the trailer out of it before they could jump in. We succeeded and were home just in time for beer and dinner.

Cmelak is just huge!

the Yanks are our container neighbors - very funny crowd

took this photo especially for our dirty Simon :)

Ziggy forced (no idea how) the organisers to print out an identification badge for him saying: Ziggy Very Important Person (with his photo on it). Everyone is envious as we just have the standard badges saying Pilot, Team Captain or Crew. His is very special. And so is Ziggy.

My mom came to visit for a few days so we take her out for a nice dinner in our hotel tonight. They have brilliant food here. Mr. Gonski loves every single thing that he tried in Poland and he is definitely putting on weight. Ziggy ordered a huge poppy seed cake from the cake shop today. It will be ready for Saturday ... wait till they try that!
