lol - I got TWO flat tires at the same time, if that makes you feel any better

(have I mentioned that I hate driving on CA99? )

for those that havent attended the cal challenge yet, here are some pics to whet your appetite.

the field is amazing! big grassy open area to launch, and you can range as far as the eye can see. the launch field is the larger of the two grassy areas. the field is unlike any other field with the water that surrounds about half the field. this makes for very interesting decision making

there is a structure that is large and provides shade and a work area. it is a real lifesaver.

hope you all can make it!

Lex,

Sign up me and Terry for this, as I might not be able to make Poway and need a Summer DLG fix. Channel 15 and 2.4 for me, Terry is 2.4 .
