We had lots of members show up Saturday. It was the biggest crowd we had in over a year. Lots of air traffic with 8-10 planes in the air at any one time. The wind stayed fairly steady out of the North. Was only about 7-10 mph breeze, but that was enough to get most of the slope stuff out, just had to "hug" the hill to keep decent altitude. Plenty of good times.

The wife and I finally got back from our California trip. Had a great time in San Diego, Long Beach, Solvang, San Jose, Napa and Sacramento. I actually enjoyed LA, except for the freeways......... I also discovered Cailfornia drivers actually use their turn signals, something I never see in Florida (we coud learn something from that).
Now that I'm back, I got to enjoy some of those clean winter winds we get. Saturday had a good strong wind and it was great at times, coming out of the West. Unfortunately it switched to the NW several times which placed it on the point. We had a good turnout with only a few minor midairs. All in all a great day.

Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm on vacation in CA this week. But I heard from the guys that yesterday (12-12-09) was pretty good on the hill. Apparently it was a sloper day with lots of wind.
In the meantime I took a break today to check out Torrey Pines. I've attached some pics.

Enjoy,

I arrived late Saturday, had to distribute club Xmas gifts at the gate. By the time I arived on the West side conditons were getting poor. There was a good wind (10-15mph), but it was on the SW corner and rain was approaching. I was still able to snap a few pictures before the showers began. We left early for the Peachtree Restaurant and lunch.
