Here is a video of our field being renovated back in November of 2000.

It was all done with the help of the Winnebago Sport Modelers Club which was a bit before I started flying.

However I did have the pleasure of meeting one man whom Im sure had a great deal to do with the design and completion of the project, by the name of Gordon "Gordy" Cummings, who turned out to be a great help to me not to mention a good friend.
Sadly, Gordy passed this year and will be missed dearly. Best wishes to his family.
Thanks Gordy, you will be missed by all.

Nice to have a thread. Thanks for setting it up Steve!

I guess George is going to have to get a computer and an Internet connection now. :-)

Wind / Weather

For anyone interested, here's a real nice link that shows you what the wind is going to be doing throughout the day. I use this a lot and find it helpful.
