Last week we had predictions of light wind and it was rocking. This week we had strong winds predicted and we had "meh" winds. Actually we had about 10-12mph winds, so we shouldn't complain. But we were greedy and hoped for stronger stuff (weather channel was predicting 20+mph).
Actually we got some great flying in starting on the NE bowl and switching around to the East face over Powerline Rd at days end. The tally at the end of the afternoon was 12 smiles and 3 crashed planes (don't ask).

PS Amos shot all the pictures this week, which allowed me to fly. Thank you Amos!
PS Also, this coming weekend is the Buzzard's Tangerine TD contest in Ocala. If you are in the area, swing in.

Saturday was a surprise. Wind was predicted at 5-7mph and moving from NW to NE. Instead we had a pretty steady 10mph wind out of the NE. I actually put in quite a bit of flight time on my Falco (suprising….I know) and spent very little time on my camera. Thankfully, Amos shot most of the pictures this week (thank you Amos!).
Also Larry L just sent me some links to some short videos he shot this weekend. Thanks Larry!

Another weekend of wind! Yeah! We had an unusual 20-30mph wind out of the West. Haven't had any true sloping out of the West in ages. James had his newly repaired Schwing up and flying. Fun was had by one and all.
