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.

There was no wind this Saturday. Any wind we got was a thermal generated wind that brief at best. If you weren't flying an electric or a handlaunch you weren't doing much at all. As usual I arrived casually late, about noon. Unfortunately, I missed some winch flying. Paul had setup the winch for some practice, but had to leave from some "pre-mother's day" activities by noon.

I ddn't get many pictures Saturday, I was on call (got there a little late) and also wanted to test out my FVK Gillette (hadn't flown in years). We had a steady NE wind, about 12mph, so most people were working the slope (NE Bowl) when I arrived. Overall a nice day, none of the rain that was threatening arrived, and the clouds kept the temps reasonable.

This Saturday started out with a decent wind (10-12mph) out of the East. As the day progressed the wind shifted to the SE and everyone ended up at the SE bowl. Plenty of good fun, DJ had his new Mini Vector out and ripping and I ended up having a mid air with Jamie (both don't worry).

Several of us "Pompano Boys" went to the Florida Soaring Society (FSS #4) TD contest in Punta Gorda. So no blog report. If you want to see info about our escapades there, read Gordon's report at:
Paul should have a brief video up shortly and posted to youtube.
Hopefully see you guys on the hill this weekend.
