Sorry was out of town and not checking the forum.

Historically, its been the +/- first 2 weeks in April. Some come earlier and some later but that is the general target date for most. Almost guaranteed to get some 40mph+ days at Weldon at that time of year... PM me if I can help with cars, hotels, etc. Happy to help any way I can...

I'll keep monitoring the air miles tickets on the web, as soon I get a seat I will book it =)
I think 2013 will be my Weldon debut hehe, fingers crossed.

Thanks guys,
André

What are you flying?
 
With all the trees in Brazil, im not sure where you could DS. But then there is always a great new experience awaiting if you havnt already.

Yes we have some spots to DS, threre is a few ones close to me city, problem here is not trees but wind, today we faced some "not common" windy day solid 25mph gusting 35-40mph went to spot to fly and the clouds was too low :(...
We did try dome laps but our planks was too light, mine was 800g when should be 1.5kg:o

But for Weldon I'm planning to build 2 "wurms Ds" with some lead on tips

Send me a PM and i'll do what it takes to get you up on a hill and flying at the very least. I have nothing crazy fast but without a doubt you will have something to fly.
