TRAINING UPDATE

Training has been challenging this year so far because every morning we encounter overcast, low clouds, etc. and we have to wait till it clears.  Most mornings that is 11:00-11:30.  Even then it's certainly not ideal.  Hopefully we will start getting better mornings.  Good luck to all.
