Thanks OP and Jonathan.

I have been getting so few days to go flying lately. Would have been a real bummer to deck out so early on such a decent day. With finding nothing promising on the glide all the way to the corner house I really thought I was done. Even after the first circle, only just barely maintaining, which is common in little bubbles over the LZ. Still in doubt after several turns, weak broken lift, slow climbing, but at some point I transitioned from "holly cow this is possible" to "for goodness sake don't loose this thermal and f-up this second chance"...:)

glider on the LZ ramp

It happened to work out nicely for Chad but whoever it was, c'mon, don't be a dufus, get your glider off of the landing ramp pronto.

I saw that one from the LZ, was truly a great job. Everyone else was falling out of the sky. Nice job!

@Greg, yep, we should all be careful to make sure we clear the LZ when there are others landing (or possibly landing).

@Jeff, yep, thanks, glad someone else saw that save:)
