That's true, there IS no guarantee for weather. That's why, since time is slim for me, I want to spend it with a plane in the air as often as is possible.
Yep, it was windy at that the Fresno Spring Fling (at Visalia). But, low and behold, a couple of slope bums stayed and used their ballast sets and still had fun.
I'm just saying that I don't like the idea of more 2 day slope events far from the bulk of the F3F populace. If there is a local contingent, great. With the price if gas and my iffy work schedule, I'd rather stay local for F3F and fly one day events.
2 day thermal events are less risky for me and worth the gas and time, since the likelyhood of getting no flying in is low.
Hope to see you banging turns with the Pike one day soon.
