John,
I tried to fly with the DARTS, but every time I went out to the field no one was there to fly with. At the time I was just starting back up after a looooong break - I had an EZG and an Omei and was putting together a Spirit Elite. I also flew at the Wingmasters field behind Wegerzin, but got scolded because I had my EZG over the pits at 500' or so - the guy got really ticked when I tried to explain that the thermal was there and there really was no danger to anyone.
Had to move to NC in 08.

Martin,

Yeah, the guy was definitely in mortal danger with your ship 500' over his head. I'm sure he wasn't aware that unless it's a huge bubble, thermals move and the time you spent over the pits probably would have been very brief anyway. When we have power flyers at our field, I just stay in contact with them vocally and tell them when I'm getting down to their altitude and in the pattern. I stay out of everyone's aerobatic box and we peacefully co-exist. I fly power (electric and gasoline) myself, so I fully understand the differences in speed and handling. Some guys think the silent flight guys are a pain, so I just go hunting air somewhere else. When there's boomers around, they don't see me anyway.

I will be pleased to meet you if I come down.

Dave

Oh Go

I'm in the middle of a bunch of medical tests right now but it looks like I may be able to move one of them enough to make it. Looking forward to seeing you guys again, it's been a while.
Besides Reisinger is coming and we can't let him get out of town by himself:-)

You guys are scaring me now. First Denny. Now Randy. Please, do come!

I may have to get me a serious ALES model next time. Too late for this year. So you are safe as far as kicking my butt goes

I seem to recall you and Paul Naton kicking butt with a Radian Pro and a Radian, respectively.
