Weather was great, thermals and a 10-15mph wind out of the West. That meant the first time we had flown "slope" in months on the Westside. Unfortunately this negated winch launching practice for this weekend's Ocala contest (besides, cross wind launches on a slope are no fun). As usual, I arrived late, so I only had time to throw my Acacia together and and make a few passes before packing up.
Hope to see you guys at FSS #5 in Ocala this weekend........

No blogs to report for the last 2 weeks. I and the wifey were on vacation on the "600 mile garage sale". Don't laugh, the things a man must do to keep the wife happy!
Unfortunately I didn't get up to the field this week till late, So I don't have too much to report. Due to the heat/humidity and possible rain, we had a small group flying (8). Most of the guys were winching on the West side. They shifted to the Southwest bowl, to slope, as the wind increased to 12-15mph.

PS Don't forget guys, the FSS #5 TD contest that we are running in Ocala on 9/3-9/4 will be here shortly. Here's a link: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1481663
