This was a good weekend. The landfill was open both New Years Eve and New Years Day.......Yeah! Of course both days they closed at 2PM, but we packed a lot of flying in. Both days were the SE Bowl, Friday was about a 10mph ESE wind, while Saturday was rocking at 15-20mph out of the SE. Plenty of pics, so enjoy!

With our site closed for Xmas, a small cadre of us showed up for some flying on the 24th. I understand a smaller group had the same idea and showed up on the 23rd to test out Paul's retriever.
We had some great flying, the wind was out of the NE with more East than North. So the guys spent most of the time on the East side. Wind was pretty steady at about 10mph which enabled slope planes to get out. I got a chance to try out my early Xmas present to my self, a 70-300mm Tamron VC zoom. All the pictures in the 12-24-10 blog were shot using it. It looks like a keeper to me (pictures look a little sharper and more contrasty....to me).

Last pic, hope you enjoyed. Also, the landfill will be closed Saturday (Xmas day). However it should be open till at least 2pm on Friday. Some of the guys are planning to get some flying in on Friday (Xmas Eve).

There be wind! After nearly a month long "drought" we finally had a good breeze. About 15mph out of the East to ESE. We all gathered at the SE "bowl" and flew till about 12:45pm when a strong rainstorm reared it's ugly head. About 1/2 of us headed down to the Peachtree and enjoyed a great lunch and some added treats of cupcakes from our favorite waitress.
