Planes that were flying were Kinetic 100, carbon sunbirds, D-80, D-60, Vector DS, JW, SOS and Johns custom wing.
Can't wait for next weekend!

Joe, glad your back around. I haven't flown Parker in years, was thinking of going there this w/e with the winds not cooperating at Convict Hill.

I have some pics somewhere of the day Fermin Bill almost rolled his little blue pickup at Parker.

I was sort of a strap hanger in that group that played with DSsing but those guys taught me how to combat DS at low speeds just relaxing having a great time.
I've never lost my love for slope soaring, all kind of started at Parker

Predicting wind a week out is not the most reliable thing... at least that's what I'm hoping.

JOe has not responded to anybody for a while now to my knowledge. Bruce and Sloper Joe have tried to get in touch with him to no avail.
We all hope Joe is doing fine.

So what's the latest... guess pending rain this will be cancelled? Is it going to be windy (and dry) anywhere else in SoCal?
