Goat Rock Fest 2011

So Neil Walker got me thinking..."Lets do a Goat Rock deal"

If you haven't flown Goat Rock when is blowing, you're missing out. It has a DS groove, as well as some serious front side compression. I've flown my Higgins plane there and been freezing, with my nose and eyes watering, and not wanting to land.

Anybody up for a Goat-Fest in, say, March of 2011?

The site about 1 hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Sonoma County, CA, just south of where the Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean, just off of Hwy-1. Landing is fairly easy, and the site is friendly for everything from PSS to foam. It's about as close to a park-n-fly as you can get. Neil also made the suggestion that we take over a campsite somewhere where we can barbeque after the shin-dig.

It'd be nice to get all the Bay Area locals out to one flying spot at one time. Who's up for it?

I'm up for it - been skunked twice at goat - no wind and then fog.
Third times a charm.
That time of the year we'll have to make some sacrifices to the
wind and rain gods to get some good weather.
