Much fettling, some flying

Phil made the Team's first practice flight today and reported 6 knots to 5000 feet. Everyone else stayed on the ground working on their gliders. Peter came close to flying, but decided to take it easy one more day. Sarah, Sean, Tom, and Bill worked on instruments all day, and are close to ready. We're hoping that everyone will fly tomorrow.

The crews worked hard all day establishing our presence on the field, shopping, programming mobile phones, exchanging currency, and raising the Stars and Stripes over our base camp. We are getting a lot of help from the friends we met at Uvalde in August.

They will call a Task tomorrow at the 1130 (1430 UTC) Briefing.
