NOT JUST OLD MEN WITH BEARDS – SHOCK!

by

Clearly if you are up to date with new media you would have been picking up on the underground buzz dominating the blogosphere that Channel Gliding Club is no longer just old men with beards. No I don’t believe it either, but something as big as this needs investigation by an undercover reporter. I therefore donned my own large false white beard & a ridiculous hat and went down to investigate. They are not a very suspicious (or observant) bunch so I managed to blend in pretty well even with a quite preposterous rushed fake set of whiskers that no one even attempted to pull off. Soon suitably attired and by standing around aimlessly and talking nonsense at length I was accepted into their pack as one of their brethren. Where upon I managed to surreptitiously take this astounding image which I bring to you now.

Amie flying & Rachael launching a club K13. Not even a silly hat between them. The world has truly gone mad.

    Yes, very disturbing, Steve, and setting a dangerous precedent. Gliding is after all a “sport” (and I use the term loosely) for wizened middle aged male trolls such as you and me. And nor is the infection confined to CGC – here at Welland we actually soloed a girlie last weekend. This madness must stop. Regards to all at CGC from all at WGC – Mark

    I am having difficulty transitioning from juvenile aviator to grandfather figure… as a former owner of a beard I feel sort of trapped in early mid life crisis.
    Removing it was a tactical decision
    The weight reduction is not massive, but clean profile helps reduce drag.
    As a born again pre solo pilot, I am compelled to torture instructors…
    Colin has been a tad concerned about my lack of hearing…
    I am considering installing my hearing aids, both ears, with a conspicuous red tag . “Insert before Flight”
    Then he can be confident that it is my brain fade responsible for lack of cogent circuit planning, not his quiet speech level…
