There are about 10 cars at AD, but no one on the field and it is hotter than blazes. Why can't we have a good month of cool air and worm sun? It went from winter to summer in 2 days.

There is a guy running a machine over the ball diamond at Ad and putting up dust. Can see bubbles of lift in the dust clouds.

I am. My goal is to make all the Blue Skies events this year, if possible.

You'll hear it one more time. BSOA is a pylon day too (not to mention I'll probably miss pylons that day due to work )

BTW, some of my pylon buddies are worried that I'll be posting to that group that "I can't make the xx/xx/xx races, I'll be in California at a dlg contest"

Killer lunch w/ AD @ 12300. HUGE lift. We had an AULD where we were just tossing it. 7 minutes later we are bored and come down! I was in a thermal 100' from AD and we both ended up in the same monster. What a ride. 2 B3's on an elevator are a good looking pair!!!!!

AD's "project" is Killer!!!!!!

If you dont have a droid phone, you may want to get one.....

And Finch. Seriously, drop it with the pylon XPS already!!!!!!

PS, Finch you aint that good at Pylons and your DLG aint that great either, but its better than your pylons!!! So it seems logical you could face a life of mediocrity in 2 disciplines, or fly DLG and get good at it.

Zenni Optical (HERE). Maybe that's why I can only see my plane to 900' Actually they are pretty darn good for the money.

Hey kids. Wondering about a 1:00 ish flip fest. Was thinking LPHS would be great if those fields are open. My fear is that the winds are picking up vs dieing down. I just came in from the West desert and its blowing a Gale out there all the way into town.

Last night we had sustained 20-30 mph winds ALL NIGHT!!!!! I need some sleep.

Hate to have everyone come down to the farm for a blow out...

What think ye.
