Today was the last practicing day before the Opening Ceremony scheduled at 5 pm, the Championship beginning tomorrow morning at 8 am.
We decided to practice at site number three as official practice flights were at site number one. When we arrived around 8.45 am it was foggy, and the Austrian Team was already there, waiting for a better weather. Loïc flew a couple of minutes, but the ceiling was so low he had to land. I went to the headquarters for some information and met the Korean Team at the processing. When back to site number 3 the weather had cleared up, and the Team had flown a round. Team from Venezuela, New Zealand, Colombia then USA joined, and the French Team finally flew four rounds, in a 90 degrees crosswind.
At 4 pm we went back to the hotel to dress for the Opening Ceremony, and then the Welcome Reception
The day was not finished as the Team Manager Meeting held by Michael Ramel and Dave Guerin, scheduled for 7.30pm was completed by 9.15 pm after we visited the two sites, number one and number three used for the competition.
Back to the hotel, we met in the lounge for a Team briefing to prepare for tomorrow..... Good luck everybody....
