Shell Creek #878

Got out early. Launched from South end of runway.  Climbed to 6100 and flew to Tracks and Trails.
Landing was exciting. When I got back to the LZ, it was starting to pop. At 300 ft I was being tossed around pretty good and had to go around twice before I could get on final at an appropriate altitude.  Seems like I kept getting lifted just as I was finishing the base turn and was too high for final.  Then I encountered sink on the runway and to flare very quickly to avoid a hard landing.
Tom Spiers arrived from Colorado yesterday.  We were lucky to hook up with Richard at Shell Creek because he was happy to let Tom hanger his WST in his hanger.
