The guys down at Vista View had a picnic on Sunday. So I swung by to visit a few friends and try to snag a few minutes of stick time. Quite a bit of action going on with EDF jets on the runway and gliders in the winch area. I shot a few pics, hope you enjoy.

Another brutally hot Saturday...hottest October in Florida I can remember. We actually had some wind, out of the SE. This gave us a chance to fly in the SE bowl. Not a big turn out of members, probably because of the heat. At least we could fly some heavier stuff, thanks to the occasional 10mph breeze.

Last Saturday was another hot one.......I see a trend here. It was West and NW light breezes, or actually "thermal breezes. Sloping was out, but the thermals were excellent. Must have something to do with drier fall air starting to show up. Once you got away from the hill, you were going up and staying. Real "hatsuckers" they were. I just shot a few pictures....enjoy.

Was a another hot one. Winds were predicted out of the East, but were out of the West and North. It was a hand launch and electric day. At one point there was nothing up but Radians. Not our best day , unless you had plenty of batteries or a good DHLG arm.

DJ also took some shots Early Saturday morning of Julio's F-22 with a missle following him. Well, actually the F-22 had a plastic toy missle attached with fishing line. It did look like the missle was locking on. See DJ's thread at :
Also, Ben shot a few shots. I've attached them below. Thanks Ben and DJ.

Saturday was a good day. Mainly East winds with thermals. Winds weren't strong, but were enough to keep up some slope birds. Thermals were strange with a set ceiling on height. We couldn't seen to get over 200ft high.
Enjoy the pics.
