Norm, I believe we have met. If you are part of CASL, I am the one that timed you at the dirt field when you managed to land safely after losing part of your tail. I had two Radians at the time, if that sparks any memory.

Do you know where you are flying this weekend? I really need a grass field at this point until I get the plane dialed in. With today's wind, it doesn't look like I will have much opportunity.

yes i do remember. it is past my short term memory time frame so i am good to go. The only 2 fields I have flown on with grass are the bowl and the Elliot field. i have no issue with going to Elliot. If we can talk Charles into coming over it is nice to have the grass. I'm game for wherever on Saturday only, i head back to New Mexico on Sunday am.

Eliott is good. An alternative is this field, if you don't mind the trees.

I'm flexible, especially given you're adjusting your plans to accommodate my lack of catching skills. This field looks good.

I will practice more catching today. I was throwing to 100ft yesterday evening...very inefficiently I'm sure, at least that's what my body is telling me. I will need to take it easy today.

I like the Elliot field, as well. It only has one street adjacent, and if you land off-field in any of the other directions, it's not lost in someone's backyard, just out in the dirt, or the other retention basin.

I fixed the blaster yesterday and I have the weekend off, so I'll likely be flying tomorrow. I'd prefer the Elliot field, despite the drive, but I'll probably end up wherever you guys go.

Ouch - quit twisting my arm! I'll be at the Elliot field between 2-2:30 pm.

That's it Tim. I've never even been to the east field, but from the maps it looks just as nice.

D'oh! Hopefully we can have a repeat next weekend, maybe after the ALES contest.
