TH on Sunday

Things were howlin' up there Sunday! Only about 4 or 5 of us up there. DCairns had his 4 meter(?) sail plane up there and it was an awesome sight.

We had our wings waaaaaay up there with some really decent thermals at one point in time. The wind shifted once or twice where we had to set em down for a few minutes but I ended up flying from about 3:30 to almost 7 o'clock. I had to make up for lost time.

But it was good to see Matt and Warren up there and DCairns. My friend Lewis came up from San Clemente and he managed a few pretty good kills..the rat ba@#$$rd ! Every time I "killed" him I went down, although I did "scare" him out of the sky once. And I managed to hit him in the arm at speed with his own wing! And my P-51 apparently mistook Warrens truck for a bogey once... Sorry Warren. It was a dead center kamikaze on the roof. Guess that's what happens when I don't get out and fly for a couple of months.

I am planning on being out this Thursday if the wind cooperates. According to the reports it's supposed to be 240 degrees most of the day with the wind picking up big around 5pm. So I hope that holds. It will be good to get back out with the TH gang again

Keeping an eye on the weather. Hope it's good for Thursday. So far it looks like SSW 5 to 10.

I passed TH yesterday ( Tues ) on the way to work - the flags on top of the Shilo Inn were pointing west ( off shore ).
Coming back from work ( around 4:30 ) they were limp - no wind at all and I saw no one on the hill. Apparently yesterday was a transition day from Santa Ana condition to regular onshore wind.
Tomorrow should be good.
Unfortunately I have to work !.

Hey Think4WD and ElmoG,
I've briefly met Warren and DC before while up at the hill. I've probably met you too as well, but with all these RCGroup 'handles' I sometimes forget some peoples real names! my name is dan mcneilly if that rings any bells. Yes, I used to be at TH pretty much every Wed or Thu whenever the group was up there Mewhitlock and greygoosegregg etc.. Before that I used to be up there with a Wanderer and then I was out of flying for a couple years and just got back into it last year and ended up meeting all the mid week boys. I was working out of the house so I could run up there anytime but now I'm back down in newport so it's tough for me to get out midweek So I'm looking foward to tomorrow and hope the winds are with us.

On the way home from work, I pass TH around 5pm.
The flags on Shilo inn were fluttering in the right direction.
So.. tomorrow should be good.
I saw a flyer retrieving his plane from the slope.

Handles

Yea I agree Dan(CharlieFoxTrot) it can be confusing mixing the internet handles with the real names. If you used to come up midweek Im guessing Ill remember your face. I think we need nametags or something hahaha or put our handles on our wings in vinyl!!

Hi everyone, I am new to the slope scene but I was at Temple with Think4WD a couple Thursdays ago to check it out. Since then, I have been building a wing of my own and will be flying it for the first time tomorrow. I look forward to seeing you guys again and possibly meeting a few new people as well! See you all tomorrow.

-Tom
