Next trip is when we can get the darn Canadians motivated to make the trip down. Get your priorities in order gentlemen!!

(But all will have to watch out for the guy that flys JR 2.4 - I'll stand guard and tell everyone when to run for cover.)

Look for the Tri-Cities in WA. Eagle/Kiona/Chandler/SDR are along I-82 just west of Richland/Kennewick.

Tri-Cities is in SE Washington State. Thierry hope you can join us on one of our outings. Connect up with Pikebuck and wakumann at Soar Utah and they'll fill you in with all the details.

Thanks for the pictures Sanders. The 3.3m Pike Giant was my weapon of choice on Sunday. This is an excellent all-around slope model. Originally designed as a windy day F3J ship, it excels in crosswind or slermal conditions at Eagle.

Well on my trip down to SoarUtah I stopped at Eagle.

Well I learned a few thing... this place is crazy fun.... and second lesson... I don't have the right planes to fly slope like that.

Mine are way too slow...

So certainly some new expenses in the next days

Thierry
