Darn, I will be in Phoenix for F3J that weekend. Hopefully we can fly out there on a few other Saturdays this winter. It really is a nice facility and the lift is usually booming.

Looking forward to it as well. Hopefully we'll see some wave like Rick did a while back.

2 Weeks away

Hi Guys

We are only two weeks away from some great low desert soaring. I hope you have all had a chance to look at the past videos.

We invite any and all to come and enjoy the severe clear skies.

Mike I don't think I can make it (too much work ), but I have your winglets still. Maybe I can drop them off with Dennis, or check if Mike Lance is going and meet him Friday during my lunch

That's fine, Frank. I don't think I'll be making it either. See you next time.

Weather now says rain and wind up to 20 mph on Friday, then part cloudy to clear Saturday, with winds up to 15 mph...then clouding up and raining again Sunday. Sounds like things change rapidly in the desert.

At what point would it be considered too windy to fly there?
