New hill record in Sacramento

The small band of ds'ers in Sactown finally have radar, and Seth set the hill record today at Folsom's Dyke 8/Folsom Point. Seth was ripping it up all day, getting a 141 with his D40, a 111 with his Mach Dart, and a 178mph run flying his Dynamic 60 in 15-25 winds. He even dodged all of the rocks on landing by parking her softly in the top of a 100 foot oak tree

The plane was retrieved just before sunset with just a small ding in the LE. I was the witness, using a Pocket Radar. Nice flying Seth!

Ya know, we've been kinda thinking the same thing ourselves This place rocks in N, NW winds and there's 3 miles of water the wind travels over before it hits the dyke. As close to coastal air as can be found inland. The only downside is there's a lot of foot traffic and we only DS when there's nobody anywhere near the line. So we get a few good laps in, then have to wait for the walkers to clear. I think 300 is possible at Dyke 8 in 35-40 conditions, which we don't get more than 3 or 4 times a year. Not very deep on the backside so it makes for some white knuckle turns, especially when the shear tries to roll the plane on the bottom turn. Stay tuned for a new hill record, somewhere over 200. Seth and I have a bet going: the first guy to go 200+ has to drive to Weldon
