Saturday was excellent. We had a strong15mph wind out of the NE with gusts to 20mph. The NE bowl was rocking and their was fun to be had!

This weekend started out rainy, not a good start, but by 11am it had cleared. We had the normal Summer wind pattern of SE or ESE. Although a few of the guys moved to the East slope (they said it was better on the East), our main group setup camp on the SE bowl. It was a suprisingly good day with a steady 10mph wind until 2pm.
Needless to say everyone left with smiles

I missed flying the Saturday before last. That's why no blog. Several of the Pompano Hill Flyers, including me, were up at the FSS#2 Thermal contest in Kenny World: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...1868204&page=3
I thinks this last Saturday was an 8 on our slope-o-meter fun scale. We had a good breeze on the SE Bowl, easily about 15mph. Some great slope flying, along with good thermals meant lots of combat and speed runs. Enjoy the pics!
