We got 2 good days of flying in with Fiday being New Years day. Saturday brought us a cold front (Brrrrrrrrrr). But as we all know that means North winds....yeah. We were cold, but got some great North Side slopeing. Again I let our illustrious Ben C be our photographer, so for once enjoy a different photographer's perspective......

The landfill was open New Year's day and guys got some flying. I didn't attend but I heard it was windy, choppy air that hovered on the SW corner.
Ben C (Falcon880) was kind enough to get some pics and send them on. Thanks for the pics Ben.

We had lots of members show up Saturday. It was the biggest crowd we had in over a year. Lots of air traffic with 8-10 planes in the air at any one time. The wind stayed fairly steady out of the North. Was only about 7-10 mph breeze, but that was enough to get most of the slope stuff out, just had to "hug" the hill to keep decent altitude. Plenty of good times.

The wife and I finally got back from our California trip. Had a great time in San Diego, Long Beach, Solvang, San Jose, Napa and Sacramento. I actually enjoyed LA, except for the freeways......... I also discovered Cailfornia drivers actually use their turn signals, something I never see in Florida (we coud learn something from that).
Now that I'm back, I got to enjoy some of those clean winter winds we get. Saturday had a good strong wind and it was great at times, coming out of the West. Unfortunately it switched to the NW several times which placed it on the point. We had a good turnout with only a few minor midairs. All in all a great day.

Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm on vacation in CA this week. But I heard from the guys that yesterday (12-12-09) was pretty good on the hill. Apparently it was a sloper day with lots of wind.
In the meantime I took a break today to check out Torrey Pines. I've attached some pics.
