The plan was to build a completely new runway at Sarah Park and make an airpark. That plan turned into a bunch of old men bickering about it. We will revisit this issue in the fall. Our runway is horrible for jets, but it makes you a pilot!

Holly Toledo, Sara park is much better than what we have in Corona. Maybe I'm a better pilot than I think.

I'm an old guy, but I hate other old guys, all they can say is "where are we going for lunch?" they say it over and over and over. They are too cheap to buy hearing aids, they expect 1942 prices, they have elastic bands around their wallets, their wives have to get involved with everything, they drive everyone around them completely mad.

They are just like me. LOL

What was my name, and oh I forgot to ask, Where are we going for lunch?

That field is so bad. You can not nail the landing first 30% of the runway.

Heck the pit area is twice as big as my local runway, and every landing is a carrier deck landing for me. I will say that the two other clubs that I am a member of are really first rate though. One has a 600' concrete runway and the other has an 800' asphalt surface. Full power and facilities at both. After landing on the Nimitz all day I look like a pro on the larger runways

I know Tam
right now there calling for 98 on Saturday and 97 Sunday
but with it being over a 100 all week ... it will heat up fast in the morning

I'm shooting for early morning ..it's tough to fly before 8:00 at Oakdale your looking staight into the sun.... by 9:00 it's no problem... I should be set up and in the air by 8:00

I'm a fair weather kind of guy.. so 12:00 I'm gone..lol

Cool Bob,
are you going to fly it up at oakdale? or just showing it off?

later
Ron
