As many of you may know by now, Day 3 was cancelled on account of weather. We awoke to mostly overcast skies this morning, and the weather briefing, being somewhat optimistic, suggested that we would be able to fly. But with the possibility of thunderstorms. So, of course, we were on the grid waiting. The day was officially cancelled at 2pm.
On Tuesday evening the American team, along with Giorgio and Mariangela, accompanied
the South African team to a wonderful Italian dinner at La Pannocchia, which is located in the village of Cantalice. La Pannoccia is one of Georgio's favorite restaurants. He is a personal friend of the owner, and has been going there as a regular for 25 years. The food is exceptional!
As a side note, it appears that unfortunately Jennifer's glider cannot be repaired in time for her to continue in the competition. Jennifer Bradley was the South African representative in the Club Class.
The wireless internet continues to be a major problem in the campsite area. Reception is intermittent at best. (since this is being written on Day 4, I can tell you the wireless has failed. It is under repair and may be fixed by this evening. Maybe not)
