Entered by: Chelle
Web link: Rainfall Weyr
Summary: The AWLM organizes the weyrlings into a fake fall drill, complete with Wings and Wingleaders, in order to practice their between skipping, flaming, communication skills, coordination, and leadership abilities.
Article: Ga'wer waited on the practice field and watched as the weyrlings showed up. He was excited and hoped this would go well since it would really give them a taste of what wings did in threadfighting. When they were all seated, he stepped forward and slapped a hand on his leather covered leg. "As you know, today you be taking part in a threadfall drill. We'll have the ropes as usual, but things will be a little different. You'll be put into wings. Three, to be exact. Each will have a Wingleader and a Wingsecond. And one of you will get the honor to be the Weyrleader today."
