Christmas eve found the Pompano Hill Flyers on the West and East sides of the hill. A small contingent was on the West side winching to their hearts content. The larger group was on the East slope enjoying the thermals and slope lift which were surprisingly strong considering the wind. I think everyone got in more flight time than they could handle. Probably the temp being 80deg and the lack of that funny white stuff you Northerners get ( I think it's called snow?) contributed to a large turnout.

Happy Holidays....

A contingent of the club headed up for the Florida Soaring Society end of the year contest at the IRKS field: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1548911&page=2

Because of the contest and the impending holidays, we had a small turnout......only 6 guys. Of course, in retrospect, maybe the six of us should have stayed home. The winds were light out of the North and we were taunted by stronger breezes which desolved whenever we pulled a sloper out. Lots of thermal and electric flying with the emphasis on electric.

Happy holidays

Last Saturday was a "b'tween" day. Windy enough to fly the slope but not to windy as not to get some lighter thermal planes out. Had a good sized crowd. All smiles by the end of the day, although Larry L did lose his eHawk to a mid-air. Also, Larry L shot some videos. I've attached his videos below.
