Steve, i'll be sending you some $$$$$$ for the membership card and the decals i'll let you know how many i need. Maybe this weekend it will clear up enough to fly, the dang rain has plagued us all week and there has been no break at all, clear 1 minute rain the next. Still working on that 1hr, maybe someday it will happen. Steve your doing a great job on this whole program, if i haven't told you before thanks for putting this together. This program is great for me, there is no way i can travel to any contests, running 2 body shops leaves little time on the weekends to go anywhere so most of my flying is in a 30 mile radius of my shop, i'm just lucky enough that my shop sits on 5 acres and nothing but a few trees between me and wide open spaces so if i feel that urge to get some air time out i go.

Everyone have a great day
Steve

Weatherman claims it's gonna be nice this weekend, i hope he's right i haven't flown all week i think i may be going into withdrawals or something like that, i may need to seek professional help

Steve, Joe and the rest did anyone get any flying done this weekend? Went out yesterday and it was a perfect day to fly. put up my new to me Sharon 3.7, man this thing is awesome, 3 trim flights later this bird hit a HUGE thermal and up it went. I set the timer just for the heck of it, the 1st two flights with it were 10:45 and 26:33 then the buzzards showed up and showed me where the lift really was. I don't know if we actually touched each other but one of those birds did some quick rolls and i could see the Sharon wobble, so maybe we did. After 45:00 minutes of flying i decided i needed a place to park my backside and set in for the long haul. To make a long story short i did get my 1hr plus an additional 13:23 extra but guess what NO witness oh well it was a great day anyway to just get out and fly.

Everyone have a great day
Steve

A few tasks down

My sons and I were out for a couple hours yesterday at the local sod farm. It was overcast, but we got in 5 landings together. I also got a slow bubble from the brief burst of sunshine we had. I only got up to about 700 feet, but I got a 9:37 flight to cover one of my 5-minute TD tasks.

The 1 1/2 inches of rain we got Thursday and Friday turned our sod farm into a lake.
No Soaring for us! @#$$%@^
Next weekend is looking good so maybe.....

Since we got rained out of the sod farm I finished and maidened my 50cc this weekend. However, today was a great day! One of my best friends showed up for a surprise visit after not seeing him for over a year. He got here at around 10:00 into a flight. He then refused to let me land to greet him. So he chatted with my brother and I while I flew out a 33:35 to become member #4. At that point it was all up and an hour would have been easy as the day just kept getting better. I landed and stopped flying though to visit as we only see each other for a short time every year or two. It made for a great day! "SO ALL HAIL MEMBER #4, YOUR FEARLESS LEADER".

Congrats Steve and about time you got that done.

Was out this weekend flying some F3F. Had a blast. Won the thermal lottery and busted out 55.xx sec run that included a nasty bunt on the base B turn. Hill record is 51.xx. For those that don't know F3F, a bunt is when you start to turn too early and have to push the nose across the pylon plane before going back the other way.

You flatlanders need to get out and rip up some slopes with your big, full house thermal ships. In light winds they are a blast on a slope.
