I'm game for either BDO or WSUD. Jim or Jeremy should make the call tomorrow. Ace, pm us your cell # so we can call if you're already on your way. I hope we get some sun.

Loved the poster, and the punishment for talking about all that electric mumbo jumbo!

Nice poster ace. Jon doesn't look a bit upset though. Looks as though he's liking the beating.

Well, looks cloudy all day , but I'm still planning on flying. J is it foggy down your way? The fog has cleared out here, but it's dark gray up high.

It's clear and blue in Ogden, but BDO is 2 miles away from me. Has it cleared up down there yet?

What time are we meeting? Noon?

WooHoo, finally someone else is awake! Forget Christmas morning excitement... this is what keeps me awake

I spoke too soon earlier. It has not really cleared up here in Syracuse, but we normally have fog when no one else does.

If it's blue skies down there, then let's shoot for BDO @ 'high' noon.

Umm. Clouds rolled in just barely. Sorry. Not foggy though.

Too late I'm sure, but I'll see you at BDO. Probably cloudy all over now.

Great day of flying today guys. Thanks!

Alula, Epona, Lighthawk, Blaster, Longshots, Stobel. Great to see such a variety of planes and we all had our shot staying up the longest.

Merry Christmas to all tomorrow!

J

Thanks for the company at BDO today. Good fly! The field was in great condition with zero snow. I'm always amazed at how much lift can be found on a gray solid overcast breezy winter day with temps in the 30's.

Finally maidened the Stobel! It definitely left me smiling...

J's new B3 looks and flies awesome. Jim was tearing up the sky with his Epona, and won some AULD rounds even with 3oz of ballast on board. Had his new open altimeter going and was getting some very nice launches (must be the altimeter ). Alex and A.D. came with their Longshots, plus some of their friends with Alulas. We also discussed a little F3K task strategy. It was great seeing all those gliders in the air! We need to do that more often. Thanks AD for letting me chuck your Alula a few times, and for a go on the Extreme Wing. Sorry about doinking it and busting a prop. I can't fly anything with a motor anymore... .

Next up is our New Year freeze fly, first contest of the year... well first DLG contest ever in Utah! The 10 day forecast is showing a storm next weekend, so let's plan on Jan 8th. BDO might be the best spot for it if the sod farm still has 2 feet of snow. Will monitor. Stay tuned.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Mike

Merry Christmas all! Great flying with all of you today, wish I could have stayed longer. That whole "just one more flight" thing is really addicting especially with great friends. Looking forward to the 8th.
