This weekend was virtually a carbon copy of last week. Slightly more wind at the end of the day and it started picking up at noon. Again, it was a good chance for the guys to test their heavy birds for the NW trip. Fortunately, no major carnage and all planes left intact.

PS no captions this week. Iím posting this blog on the way to Oregon. No time to caption.
Next posts will come from the NW....Continue Reading

finally a little more wind. Nothing fantastic, but better than last week. And actually the last hour from 1-2PM, was ripping nicely. Because of our upcoming Oregon Slope Safari (only two weeks!), we needed an opportunity to test out some of our heavy slope birds. As usual, a good time was had by all.

I was out of town for the past two weekends. Fortunately, Larry L took some pics and had a short report from the weekend before last. Thanks Larry!

Sat was a clear hot light wind day. Good turn out and good participation.
The sea breeze front came through at about 1 PM which allowed for some plank flying, Good enough to Gulp and Moth, in the SE bowl.
Tried a new burger joint, Tucker Duke's on Powerline Road just South of Hillsborough Blvd. Good food, but limited menu and sparce, crowded seating. As usual a good time.
Best regards,
Here's a short vid:
