They came to the airport in Michałków for a long time before the competition. Sebastian Szczurtek and Rafał Lokumski from the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management have the task of preparing a weather forecast for gliders - difficult, complicated and very accurate. They meet with the sports director who, depending on this forecast, determines the tasks for a given competition day. At 10:00 am, at the briefing for pilots, they face 130 players and say: you will fly or not.
Lokumski and Szczurtek are laughing that they have chosen a thankless job because in Poland everyone knows everything about the weather, as well as about health, football and politics. And when asked whether they have magic glass balls in the institute for forecasting the weather, they say, in a serious tone, "Yes, we have".
