Pretty fair afternoon at Eagle with better things to come tomorrow (as long as the rain holds off). Glad to finally get to throw a plane or two off this hill after having been here for a couple of months now. Also glad to put some faces to the names on this thread. Thanks for welcoming this transplanted southern Californian and his modest foamies to the Tri-Cities slope scene. If we get some big air tomorrow I will better understand why you guys drive so far to fly here.

Does 35+ qualify as good? That's what we got after the 10 AM rain squall. I suppose for the Portland and Seattle guys it seemed normal, but for this ex-San Diego guy it was pretty amazing. I put all the slugs it'll hold into the Raven and it ripped! In fact, it could probably have taken more, but the speed I was getting was scarey enough. Great flying with you guys and thanks for all the tips and help. Only problem is now I'm gonna have to get heavier planes and heavier clothes.

Hello Keith,

60+ steady winds. Brio went pretty good.

It was an awesome trip!!.

Friday was great, flew pretty much everything I brought.

Saturday not so much wind but I flew some light planes and electrics, and had a fun time BSing with all the guys there. We even made a side trip to Chandler for "exploration purposes only".

But today was definitely the BEST. Flew my Rodent with a full load of ballast, what a hoot.

SrWAde and I loaded up our Ravens and flew some formation half pipes. He caught on to this BIG WIND stuff really quickly. We'll turn him back into a Northwest flyer yet. Great Job Mike!!!

I had to leave about noon but they say the wind hit 73MPH later in the afternoon.......


Thanks for all the fun guys, hope to do it again in the spring.

Great air today! An overall fantastic 4-day mini vacation for me. Good company and great flying. Wind was howling today. Can't imagine what it will be like tomorrow.

My new to me Big Ceres flew great!

Pilebuck... Buddy. 60 mph steady is tough to fly in, but add in a little rain and ice pellets hitting your face. No thanks. You pulled it off without batting an eye. You da man. Nice job!

Sam,
is used to rain and this kind of weather from 'Danger' Bay.
Assume he has the whole EB slope for himself by tomorrow.
Sam, you should put the GPS modul on your Euro trash just to prove your flew.

Cheers
