Bogong Day1

The morning brought alot of smoke. After the morning briefing we headed up to Emu1 where they called an 80km task. At the time it was just about possible to make out the shadow from the mountains on the far side of the valley, but it was always very heavy smoke. The rules say 5kms vis is required and there were mixed opinions when the field started to launch. After about half the field had launched pilots started to radio back with reports of very limited visibility on course and the day was canned. BBQ tonite and hopefully better conditions tomorrow.
