Where are we flying

Hi every one I've been watching the post sites to find out where the club will be flying. Point -- Kearns I'm planing on comming out and watching for a short time. Just got permission to drive, Still no weight bearing on the left foot for the next 8 weeks. But can seat on my butt and watch. Scott would like me to hold a event on the 11 . This well be a test to see if I can handle it.

I'll be where the main group is hope to see everyone thier

That is 3 Pilots so far. I talked to Dan and he is 50/50 on if he can make it. so that could be 4.

Race Canceled to to weather

Tomorrow morning will be very light with and early switch to the north. http://www.weather.com/weather/hourb...xtbeginIndex=6

Looks like we will postpone the race for now. Could be some could Dynamic Soaring wind tomorrow afternoon on the North Ridge.

Maybe we can fit this race in before Soar Utah? What kind of turn out would we get next weekend?

Yep. Looks like the switch will happen. The chance of rain usually means super big thermals and better then normal lift. Could be better then expected up there.
