Ozone Fest at Nummela

This morning woken by the sun, and by an incoming text message that urged paragliding students (and instructors) to come to Nummela airfield asap. Before 11 we had a nice crowd there. Initially the wind was very cross and some low fog clouds prevented us from towing but gradually the sky cleared out a bit and the wind turned South, and the towing could begin!
I actually encountered buoyant air and even some small patches of lift, nice! Once I landed I noted that all gliders present were from Ozone, so it looked as if we had some special event going on. I'd to leave early to fetch some scouts from a weekend event but I'm sure everybody got a couple of tows in nice conditions.
