This year only 3 hardy souls ventured out from the Pompano Hills Flyers for our annual Oregon slope trip. Tom, DJ and I both arrived mid-day in Portland. We made a straight run to Hood River, dropped everything at our motel and went straight to Lumber and sloped till we dropped. Not bad for a first day.

Saturday turned out to be the best of both worlds. Winds were light in the morning, so we winched on the West side. As the winds picked up out of the East to about 10mph we shifted to the East side for some sloping. Couple guys had new planes to maiden, James had his Sunbird and Andrew had his Multiplex Fox. Both flew well.

I was out of town this weekend. But heard from the guys there was some decent winch flying on the Westside in the morning. Also that the wind picked up and there was some decent slope flying later on. Also, Ben got some pictures of the completed "HOLLYWOOD" sign on the South side of the Hill. Looks like they'll be filming scenes for Rock of Ages very shortly, possibly this week.
Additionally, a few of us our heading for our annual Oregon slope trip (Tom, DJ and I), next week. Hopefully we'll catch some big wind.

Saturday was a 2 part day.
The morning was a light south wind, which was great for winching on the West side. In fact, Waste Mgt, I understand from Paul, has cleared the West top side of pipes and made for some excellent winching and practice landings.
The afternoon was was "windier" and had everyone in the SE bowl enjoying almost 15 mph out of the South. On a side note, they are preparing for a new movie (Rock of Ages) on the hill and a Hollywood production crew is busy setting up a 2/3 size replica of the HOLLYWOOD sign on the South side.
