I have read the entire dom thread, It is a great representation of who slopers (most) are, I dont think we'll have a problem getting Jim to re sticky it.

Thanks James
I have sent a PM to Jim requesting it be re-stuck.
Its a shame that one request from someone that has not been involved, can have the thread unstuck.

send your PM's to Jim

Lilly's

We had some good wind at Lilly's, and a few more of the guys got to fly the Dom. I made some new taller winglets and we tried them out.

Who is next Zipper? If Cory is next, I just need an address.
Jonathon, are you going to be around tomorrow? I know you want to fly the Dom, I don't want to hog it. If no one is ready for it, should I recover it?

As late as it's getting I'm starting to think it should come to me next. I'll send you a PM so you can send it if Zipper approves.

Tom, will you be at Lilly's tomorrow? Being fathers day I have temporarily increased clout and will try to bend the forces of the universe to cause my wife to escort me to go flying.
Shoot me a txt or call me when you think would be a good time to meet up.

There is an elephant in the room here so I'm gonna be the one to point at it and shout.
Are you guys who are flying the Dom making the prerequisite charitable donation as per the intent of the trip?

Sorry Cory, I snuck in a date with the Dom but will have it shipped out tomorrow night or Wednesday at the latest. Tom brought it to the 3rd Speedo MoM races yesterday at Lunada Bay so I could fly it before sending it off, but mother nature decided to let everyone know who was in control and it was pretty much all we could do to keep the Speedo's afloat let alone the DOM which according to Tom is not a light wind wing anymore.

I was planning on flying it this afternoon but in the scrum to get the kid in the car, kiss the wife good bye, and hurry out the door to school and work this morning I accidentally left the DOM on my work bench in the garage . Tomorrow though, the DOM will be flown at Pt. Fermin and if anyone else local wants to make it out for a fly please let me know. I can be there anywhere from 12:30ish to 2:30ish but only for about a 45min window so please let me know in advance. After that it will be headed to the post office.

No apologies needed. I only care that I have it in time for it to be ready for Soar Utah over Labor Day weekend. Get at least another good flight in before you ship it.

Thanks Cory. Wind conditions look good now, but I think I will hold off heading out for a bit to allow the lift to pick up some more as I want to make sure that tip stalling is not an issue.

A couple questions to those who have set up the DOM in the past.
1) There is a little white paper in the box that looks like it's for setting up the throws but it beats me if I understand it. Can anyone help? (see attached below)
2) Is CG marked on the wing? I forgot to check although I doubt it needs any adjusting.

Lastly a question to Zipper and the DOM community in whole. I took the time to scan the log book and now have it in a PDF format I could post up here on the boards. Is that something that would be ok to do, or should it be kept as part of the experience of actually flying the DOM?
