As we know, there are not more beautiful memories we can keep about our nice experiences than some photographs, so we sent Maci to the front line (actually we didn't have to send him, he sent himself there) to take some shots, that we can give to the participants at the end of the competition as a gift.

We have encountered a mosquito free period

For general amazement (and for great happiness) of our club members, it seems that we have left without mosquitos in this season. :-)

We, clubmembers hardly can beleive this, but the hunters wandering frequently in the forest Gemenc, don't understand either, how this mosquito free period occured in summer of 2007. There were rumors amongst the hunters earlier, that surprisingly few mosquito larva could be observed on the water surfaces of forest Gemenc. Some of the hunters even thought that it could be the result of an environmental pollution, but we haven't yet experienced any official announcement regarding this.

Many of the hunters can imagine that the reason of the the low number of mosquitos this year is the extraordinary heat and drought. This explanation seems much more reasonable for us, laymen, because we have experienced the very same mosquito free conditions during our visits at lake Balaton this year. (Sure, we know that the mosquito liquidation process is more intense at the lake Balaton than at other parts of the country, but the this situation was the same earlier, and even so there were a lot of mosquitos there. But this year almost there aren't any.)

So, whatever is the reason of mosquito free period, we really hope that this will last fore this whole summer! And if this will happen, the nights will be pleasurable on our rapidly approaching Gemenc Soaring Competition as well. :-)
