Mike Muscat is on scene at the SOS World Record attempts and skills camps. He reports,
The second day of the Masters Skills Camp was met with overcast skies that didn’t budge all day. Jeff Jones, John Hamilton and Russ Manhold made use of the morning meeting with valuable instructions on flying quadrants and radials and how best to use the ‘Red Zone’: 100′ out; 100′ up: When we were gathered again, in the afternoon, we all knew it was to be released for the day. We had been treated to only a few blue patches of hope from above, but the clouds squelched each one in short order.
While we had predicted correctly the reason for the circle up, Jeff Jones also proposed a new plan for Monday. Originally, it was scheduled to be a day devoted to getting the ladies a Women’s SOS World Record. While that has not changed, we will also be doing the second day of the Masters Skills Camp where the focus will be on building larger formations. The formations were kept smaller on Saturday. That idea met with much approval from the group. All but a few would be able to attend for the much needed learning and practice.
Let’s hope the clouds are a No Show !!
