-----------------Dave's Beach Sloping---------------------

Well, it looks like it's finally time to split off and give Dave's Beach it's own thread.

For those that don't know where it is or how it got the name Dave's Beach, here are a couple of informative links;

Dave Kellogg
Map to Dave's Beach

Use this thread to post your next flying date, wind report, upcoming events or just flying topics related to this site.

We're lucky to have several good flying sites in San Diego County and a great group of fliers. Hopefully, this thread will just allow us to focus topics related to flying at Dave's.

Not expecting much this weekend Tom,...

...but has been 6~8mph W to WNW the last couple of weekends. Flyable but not ideal since Dave's is a 250 degree facing slope and ideal in WSW winds.

This weekend may be best suited for propellor planes doing orthbound "Touch and Gos"

Here are a couple of representative wunderground stations near Dave's Beach

Alta Mira is on the East side of the 5 Freeway on the side of the Hill

Beacons is right on the Coast about 2 miles South

If we can get Hilton Gardens to post weather stats, we'll be in the money!

I'd love to see people there more regularly. Not too many good days this summer, though.

Yeah,

...with the new Hilton Resort down the Coast Hiway, we may have another good chance to convince the Hilton Garden Inn to mount a web cam & weatherstation.

It may help them with loss revenue
