Good to hear your doing well and busy Aradhana
Everyone really missed you at bsoa!
Hopefully weather treats us decent this weekend.
I 'd like think we could add more local one day contest/practice events , and get more participation up .
My goal is to practice as much as possible this winter,and attend all the 2-day comps in Az,Nm,Co, and Ut this coming season.
So if there's anything I can help with/do to benefit our little dlg community I'm ready and willing
Many thanks
Tom

Weather looks great for tomorrow, so we're on for Saturday at the Sod Farm.
Warm up at 9 a.m., start at 9:30.

Is there any particular skill you guys want to work on? Otherwise, I have a plan...

Many thanks to the gang in Northern New Mexico for the good times today - especially the "hangar flying" after the wind came up. Good work, Tom. I'm pretty sure you took what ever honors there were to be had, today. Matt, I hope you can find a worthy airplane to supplement the faithful Vortex. Aradhana, thanks for the preparations. I'll be eager to hear more about future projects, and if you want to talk more about wind tunnels, let me know. And Buzz, thanks again.

I can most likely get Fridays off, if it will help Skyler.

Yours, Greg

Out this morning under scattered cirrus, winds light and variable.

3-minute flights were a dime-a-dozen, but I could not, just could NOT put together a 10-minute flight. The best was 7:59.

It was the perfect day to see whether the 3-vector analysis of thermals really works - and, it really does.

Yours, Greg
