OK guys let's get one thing straight- sloping is fun, great fun in fact. but it rarely involves the amount of beer nor numbers of young ladies screaming a rugby game attracts.

Although, during the spring and summer months Dave's beach can be a very nice place to be!

looks like I might have a surprise for the chevron wing class this week if we get some interest at Saturday's HURL.

What do you say MIKE K.?????

Chief calling him out.

He had the only chevron entered last week so we placed him with the weasels, this Sat he will have to fly with his own kind!!!!

Where is the Burly Electrician? I thought for sure he would be racing weasels with us.

The Burly Electrician's business is booming, he's raising his granddaughter while her mom 'n' dad are in Iraq and the lawn needs mowed amongst other mundane chores such as rebuilding the back yard, fixing the clothes washer, taking down 3000 Christmas lights, going to Arizona fly-ins and the AMA Convention, planning the flying venues and LipoSack booth for RCX this year and slowing down every now and then to play with a newfound interest in EDFs. Otherwise...

...I'm not doing a damned thing with my life.

I am unofficially changing the name of Dave's Beach to Dave's Beach Park

GRASS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just drove by Dave's Beach at lunch and the City/State sprayed hydroscape over the entire dirt area of Dave's Beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No more 30 grit landings, but soft cushy grass landings!!!

We will see how it grows, but it sure looked cool just with the green hydoscape sprayed on it!

Life is Good,

Too bad they can't just put down some of the artificial turf. I doubt anything would ever last there with the foot traffic and planes "landing" on it all the time.

Hmmm, I wonder if we should start a turf fund? What's that stuff called? I think LT advertises it.

Hope to see you Saturday,
Jim
Haha this sounds awesome. How will I know it's you anyways?

And what exactly is this HURL business?

H.U.R.L. is short for Heads Up Racing League. Here's the official thread

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=813694

Just another excuse to get together, talk trash, and be slope trash.

Oh, bring it on now. Greg, just pray you don't get in my heat

I'm the guy in the HURL thread pictures with the ugly red white and blue M60 (www.northcountyflyingmachines.com). Think there's a post-race-pilot-meeting-picture showing me next to my plane on the ground using one foot to scratch the sore shin that I just hit while making the rushed pilot meeting landing The one where I had everyone convinced that I landed it upside down...on purpose. (it flipped upside down after hitting my shin).
