But they count backwards. So that means in order to proceed forward, you must proceed backwards.

Perhaps upward would work better.

(Sorry, Jerry, we all know what you meant)

Anyway, I agree! I'm certainly not passing up any launch opportunity as long as the weather cooperates. Club launches are a great way to get out and enjoy the hooby in the fresh air while still being able to observe 'social distancing' practices.

Ed, so true. And many of us have mastered the “social distancing” at launches, pursuing that drifting chute, or runaway glider ...
