Default Uvalde Day 6

A front passed through, leaving us on the north side. Good cumulus at
launch. A 4 hour MAT, 150 miles of triangle out to the west, then do
what you want. The first triangle is a rocket ride with clouds lining
up well and strong 6-8 knot thermals. As we got back to Uvalde, it
started bluing out from the east. Everyone went either west (eagle
pass) or south and played around in the good clouds. Most of us then
had to struggle to make it home as the blue moved in from the east.
Many stories of woe on making the long upwind final glide in the blue.
One more day to go!
