Going to AMA tomorrow. Might fly Norco on the way home.

No wind to day at the beach.

I'd suggest Sunday PM at either Hodges or Poway:

Forecast:

CAZ050-130815-
SAN DIEGO COUNTY VALLEYS-
902 AM PST SAT JAN 12 2008

.REST OF TODAY...MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGHS 69 TO 74. LIGHT WINDS
BECOMING NORTH 15 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.
.TONIGHT...MOSTLY CLEAR. AREAS OF DENSE FOG. VISIBILITY ONE
QUARTER MILE OR LESS AT TIMES. LOWS 40 TO 50. LIGHT WINDS.
.SUNDAY...MOSTLY SUNNY. PATCHY DENSE FOG IN THE MORNING.
VISIBILITY ONE QUARTER MILE OR LESS AT TIMES IN THE MORNING.
HIGHS 71 TO 76 IN THE WESTERN VALLEYS TO 65 TO 70 NEAR THE
FOOTHILLS. WINDS EAST 15 TO 20 MPH.

which should be enough for a few turbonators to fly (not mine unless I spend all day all night all morning on it!!)

Man, I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow... anybody who has the time tomorrow should go out to Mt. Laguna, with lots of lead (and a parka, ear muffs, gloves, goggles)

Sorry to hear that Greg. I hope everything is ok or gets there soon.

I finally finished up the testing I was doing at work so I have 4 days off! Going to head out to the shop to solder up some connecters on a couple LiPo's and if the wind stays light I am itching for some stick time so I'll probably fly the 3D. Don't think I'll be sloping until the west wind sets up.

I'll keep an eye out to see what everyone is up to,
Jim
