Happy Father's day you Mother's!

Not sure here in San Antonio with the wind either Jeff. We had booming wind Friday after work and yesterday as well. Even with 18.5 oz of lead in the cargo hold, my Wizard felt light. Insanity is the only was I can describe the flying. Today was supposed to be a measly 10. Two fathers I know had kitchen passes to fly and no dice.

Isn't it nuts how lead additions the weight of some foamies into my crunchies hardly makes a difference?

Oh yeah--- I'm father to two of my own boys-- oldest graduated from Cal State Fullerton and we had the PARTY last night!!! I'm in recovery mode!!!!
And my "bestest girl"-- not married yet but one day-- allows me to be a second father to her 3 girls-- all grown and college educated too!! I've got my 22 year old son going back to college-- so in a couple of years-- another "grad party" to be held!!!!!!
Whoohooooo!!!!

As far as wind--- Torrance is still reporting SSE--- OC/John Wayne -- has SSW? So it's a CRAP SHOOT!!!! I may fly later at LIlly Chappel down in Laguna Niguel because the onshore flow will start with the heat inland--- but I don't know if it will swing around far enough for Fermin!! The White point F3F race got skunked yesterday there!!
Good luck and GOOD FLYIN DAD'S!!!!

Happy Father's Day to all.

As for the winds... they are blowing at the "Windmills" if you don't mind the heat.

I was there from 2:30 to 3:30 or so. The pictures make it look a lot better than it was. Pictures by my daughter.

Nauga,
who had a happy father's day

Three cheers for all you guys who juggle kids and spouses and pets and jobs and mortgages and cars and everything else and yet still can GET OUT THERE and build n' fly.

And the positive influence you are on all these people..... Man that can never be understimated.

Happy Dad's day, Timmig!
I winch launched the Eagle (downwind!) about 6-8 times today. Still in one piece. Never got the courage to put the Nyx up, though...

I guess you heard that the race was a bust yesterday at WP! Bummer!

PS. I got an honorary phone call from my 14 year old stepson today, wishing me a happy Father's day. That was a very nice suprise!

Fatherhood is the toughest job I ever loved. I'm unsure whether my daughter will like flying with dad one day - but if slope doesn't do it for her, I'm willing to get her an electric, too.
