Greg,

I'll try and be there. Anywhere. We can do Socorro or the BFP/Sod Farm.

Ha! Fightin' words ... too bad your fair state's altitude is closer to Mount Everest than Death Valley. While you're shoveling snow and battling arctic winds, we'll be practicing in shorts .. and waiting for your arrival. Muhaha!

P.S.: Once you've figured out how to fly these glider like Charlie and George, drop me a line. I stll don't have the faintest ...

Cheers, Charles

Not available

Friends,
I have a prior engagement: My wife and I's 30th anniversary is on the 28th.

Before then, I can get the ASA sound cart to Matt, and provide the tracks to build a playlist. Let me know what I can do, for on the 28th I will not be around.

Snow/ice on the ground in ABQ?

Request for a conditions report: How is the ground in Albuquerque?

We have snow on the ground up here, and it doesn't look like it will melt at any of my flying spots before the next storm (Tuesday night through Wednesday). Tomorrow you guys have +7 on us, and winds look to be calm.

I have launch tests to do with a logger, comparing two fuses, and I'm willing to drive to Albuquerque to get them done, if the ground is safe for twirling dervishes.

If the ground looks okay, any suggestions where would be best? Off hand I'd consider Rio del Oso or Manzano Mesa, since I don't have a current pass for the balloon park.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

George, Charlie, and your families:
Happy Holidays from New Mexico!

Greg and everyone flying on the last Saturday of the year:
A look at the calendars show our hand launch event is on the 29th, not the 28th. So I get to fly with you all, weather permitting.

And on that note, let's consider travelling a little farther south (or north) for our get together, if travelling helps. There are times when the south has snow while the ground is dry up here around Espanola, and more often, the south is better than the north.

Tom,
That sounds great, thank you! I'll be at the gate (which one?) at 10:30.

Truth in advertising: I'll be running a sequence of launches comparing different components for at least an hour, and that sequence might be repeated. What I'm saying is I'm not sure how long I get to play flying games.

So long as that's okay with you, I appreciate you letting me in to the park.

28th or 29th

I realized the actual date is the 29th, and I'm good for that date. However, I also suggested the 28th, thinking that way, Skyler could make it, too.

I'm OK either way - the 28th (and Skyler can make it), or the 29th (and ASK can make it).

Flying further South is OK, too, but me (and I'm pretty sure Mark) can make it as far North as ABQ. If we do fly at Socorro or somewhere like that, I'll bring donuts.

Yours, Greg
