The 5 planes in the turn shot is a gem for sure, that man on man high speed insanity hour was over the top, it was amazing how coordinated it was. I felt pretty comfortable flying the Espadita.

Maybe this Fall we can get a huge Espadita Man on Man try not to kill each other fur ball going? What are there 5 or more in the neighborhood now>

Joe looks pretty happy, that's what it's all about!

Wind report for this weekend?

Looks like I will be heading to Pasco this weekend for a graduation party and I'm hoping to chuck a plane or two. Problem is that I'm not sure which website to trust for wind direction and speed, SO, can one of you more experienced Eagle Butte'rs give me your opinion if Eagle will be working Saturday afternoon? Windfinder.com for Richland airport is showing around 11knots out of the SSW. I won't have a lot of room so I'll have to bring a smallish plane, maybe two. If the windfinder forecast is close to accurate, I'm thinking an EPP wing (shudder, waiting for the smack upside the head from Dieter ) and maybe a 60" e-glider.

I won't have vehicle for SDR (soccer mom van most likely) and I've never been to Kiona or Chandler so I'm pretty much stuck on Eagle Butte, wind or no.
Thanks!
Tom

Time was too short, but I was able to get out for an hour and a half. The wind was good, but a bit slermaly on occasion where all the sudden the wind would just stop for a few minutes, but I flew both planes that I brought. Carl and Stan both made the trip out so I had some company on the hill while I was there. I think they were staying until Sunday as well but I had leave early for other family obligations.
All in all, a good day at Eagle.
Tom
