Cliffside report (late)
Mark Sanzone: About 10 pilots had multiple flights Tuesday. It was smoky and ridge soaring most of the afternoon, a little punchy early, and then lighter. There were a number of sink outs but most of the time we could top land. Occasional thermals got us maybe 500' over launch. Mark
