We seem to have a plan "B" if the parking gates are closed like they were today, probably because of the holiday weekend. Park out on Jackson St by the tennis courts. If you just have an airplane you can walk through the gates with the posts on Jackson St. If you have equipment try bringing your equipment through the open gate by the fenced baseball field scoreboard on Jackson. It was open today and it looks like they may not normally lock that gate.

We just need to keep learning the idiosyncrasies of our new field. The lift was excellent today and we had about 15 pilots. Next week is the Tomcats event and Bruce and I will be there.

Tim,

I can't make it but I notice the wind will be out of the South tomorrow. Not too good for Dartmouth

I'd like to fly Sunday. How about if I bring a winch and the LZ cones so we can set up the field for the contest?

I'll be at Independence High school by 9AM to start setting up.

It looked liked the gates were locked. I went to Dartmouth with the electro. The field is empty here.

The gates into the school parking lot are locked. If you park on Jackson there are openings in the fence you can walk thru.

We were out at about 9 until 1.

I'm going to try and be out Wednesday at Dartmouth. I'll post here Tuesday afternoon if I can go.
