We've been adopted

Our secret weapon at this competition has been Graciela Gentile, a Chaves resident who met the Sneads in 2008 and has been a friend of US glider pilots ever since. She met the McKnights at the Junin Regionals in 2009, and this year she adopted the entire Team.

She has provided us with translations, food, local knowledge, housewares, supplies, and pleasant company since we arrived, and on more than one occasion has joined the crew for a retrieve.

You can hear Gracie saying good morning at 01:27 in this recording.
