First flight at McClure

Took the glider to work on Friday 12th and drove down to McClure at the mobile home park where Carmela was staying. Slept in the car. Carmela fed me a hearty breakfast of pancakes and bacon (Thanks Carm!). Right after the site intro from her we went to the launch and I was the first one that morning to fly. I was instructed to fly pretty much straight to the LZ. Felt some great thermals right after launch, but I followed instruction. Did some zigzags and then overestimated by glide to the spot landing area and overshot it a little bit. It was a scenic 3.5 min sledder anyways. I was told I needed a little bit more practice at Ed Levin, so I took off that afternoon and returned home.
