Day 1 Pilots Meeting

Don’t do anything stupid on the first day. We let the gaggle go one way when we went another. The first time it payed off because we took 2 10knt climbs and made it to the top of the gaggle. The second time the day was ending and we came home at best glide just below the finish and used the engine to make a proper direction landing.
