it's ODOM Time at DeAnza today as the Power Boaters rage at the Pond

Sure, its right here:
if coming off the I5 free way turn at Garnett and go south or exit at Clairemont and go North, then turn at the light just south of the Golf Driving Range,

and left again into RV land as the grassy park on the left ends.. if you are coming from the SD Boat pond just wrap around Mission bay Drive to the North end the bay and you can't miss it..

Jack,
the .pdf is great.. wow lots of great info thanks a lot for posting it here.. I Epecially like Bill Mullica's ODOM Tips article at page 55 near the end..

As to "Mr. ODOM " .. I'll gladly leave that title to Jess Atkinson our Class Sectretary.. considering all the paperwork BS he has to do, I'm sure he deserves it far more than I ever would.. ..

Keep em' coming please.. JimS

Got some real interesting Video yesterday at DeAnza but..

I also got a brand new Video Editor from MAGIX and am trying to come up to speed on it .. so it'll take a while before I can edit it properly and post it here..

not easy to Title, invert , and do a PIP with proper transitions and stuff with several hundred new fangled features and functions distracting the process..

Patience is a Virtue.. wish I had more of it..

Say Today / Saturday should be great for sailing practice with a buncha ODOM guys at the pond.. Hope to be there about noon.. and Hope to see Ya there Too! JimS

Hittin it over lunch today..

Winds should be building to about 6 to 9 at the pond over lunch today..

So, I'll be looking fwd to yet another duel of the Odomites..

I'll likely be sailing the new-to-me CAPO sails in the Points Race coming up this Saturday so don't plan to switch rigs before that.. but you never know..

got my new mast head keycam rig so I should be able to point it better to catch all the key action ahead .. or behind .. (but not both).. wish I had a way to tilt and spin it under servo control but that would be too bulky .

Good Batterys for Servo/ Receiver in the boat

Had a ball a the pond over lunch today.. but one of the guys couldn't play cause his 5 cel battery was low and he was only seeing +4.7 on his Rx battery (unloaded) after charging it overnight..

and I gave him a bumb steer. so want to correct it here..

I told him to go to cheapbatterypacks.com. (which is fine for slope glider batterys)

but it's really
www.onlybatterypacks.com
http://www.onlybatterypacks.com/show...ItemID=10413.7
that I can fully recommend since they work great in my ODOM.. 10 C surge discharge capable for those quick MAIN/Jib gybe's downwind.., and generally i draw about 400 to 600 mah per day of use ..

Great video Jim,

After this PSS Fest Spitfire thing is done, I've got to start getting serious about looking for a boat.

Dale
