No night flight tonight, airport issues!

I must say I am progressing well with my night flying albeit ambit difficult to get up in the mornings for work! I have accumulated 3.6 instrument hours and about 5.5 dual night hours and tonight I was supposed to do a mock test only to finally taxi to the holding point for runway 17 when we realized we couldn’t turn on the runway lights. Grand Central is unmanned during the evenings so we turn on the runway lights by pushing in the push to talk button 4 times on the Grand Central Traffic frequency. We tried and we tried but in the end had to taxi back and park 😦

Will do the mock test on Saturday night and then my night navigation flight on Sunday night and hopefully do my flight test sometime next week, all dependent on the afternoon/evening thunderstorms which occur every single afternoon up here on the Highveld
