Yippee!
Wyoming Wind Works Impromptu slope fest

Hi all,

Adam is hosting an impromptu "slope Fest" here this weekend 12th-13th of September....... Sorry about the short notice, but that is the way things go sometimes

It will be purely a fun event, with no prizes or anything, just a good time and a "fling what you bring" attitude.

The slopes here are great and cover every wind direction including a couple of great DS hills and some quite large front side slopes! (can anyone say "Lead Slead"?

The "Shop" will be open for people to take a peek, and we may even do a couple of demonstrations like vac-bagging a wing or laying up a fuse using the bladder technique....... if there is any interest.

There will be beer and BBQ (very family frendly) at Adams place the night of the 12th.

There is space for camping here or we can help find a hotel in the area.

PM me or Adam for more information, or post in this thread.

Chris

Oh man Chris. I'd love to get out to this one but I just came off vacation and my porch pass is being held

I hope you guys get a great turn out and have a ton of fun. Did you ever get your P-40 done? If not, take a side trip to San Diego and fly mine

Can you tell those of us who don't know, exactly where in WY you are located? That will help me decide.

Ouch I wish I could attend!!! It isn't all that far from me here in Rapid...
But alas - my $$ is tied up to go to the ECHLGF just a couple weeks later... I will have to keep my eyes open for another event though. Sounds like this could be a lot of fun!!

Cody, WY is 6 hours driving from Rapid City, SD.

Maybe next year I'll do an official one with several months advance notice.

The whole idea of this "fest" is for a group of like minded slopers getting togeather and having some fun!

If the wind dosn't show up, then Adam has offered to have his shop open, you could lay-up your own Stinger or Stingeron fuse or have cores cut on the CNC hotwire..... either way with or without wind we are sure to have a good time!!!!!

Hi Frank,

Shame that you can't make it, it was nice meeting you last year at Soar Utar.

Yep, wish I could head out to Cody as well...my son has a soccer game in Mitchell Friday night...300 miles in the wrong direction.

And don't forget, the Black Hills Air Rally will be held out at the Buffalo Chip campground in Sturgis this weekend. I'm going to head over there on Saturday when I get back into town on Saturday to check it out. I'm going to try to bring a couple planes to sell as well, just in case. Gotta fund the last few items for my latest project...

Change of plans means I may be able to make it after all! What are the landing zones like at your slopes? I don't think I have a flyable foamie right now ...
