Sunday May 16th

The soaring forecast for Sunday was calling for a fairly strong day limited by 5,000' cloud base. With all the difficult soaring weather lately I couldn't pass up on an opportunity to catch some ISA action. Unfortunately I had to leave early in the afternoon and could only stay around for the first launch somewhere close to 2:00 PM.
