Flying Frenchy Style

Greetings P.E. - S.A. Friends,
This sure isn't Montana or the Maitlands, but I've watched several video clips of this guy flying in the French Alps. Someday, I've love to visit this place and fly. Enjoy!

Flying and School

To Sean and all in PE who've put up with us Montanans invading your forum:

For us, flying this summer began well with a trip in June to Williston, ND for some big air sloping. After that, it tapered off to very few outings, especially in July and August.

As usual, I had prepared for the start of a new school year (being a high school teacher at a private school) and was hoping to get to the slope a bit before school began. Then on the night of August 25, some ill-intentioned person(s) set fire to our school. After that, we scrambled to find an interim location to begin the new year.

Amazing things began to happen, and a classroom building on a local Bible college campus "just happened" to be sitting empty! With great cooperation from staff, board, and families--including a tremendous outpouring of community support--I'm very thankful to say we only missed seven days of classes. In fact, we just completed our first week of school K-12!

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I've tried to include a few pics of the main campus (gym and adjacent classrooms) to give some idea of what we've had to contend with the past three weeks--and why I haven't been flying much or even able to frequent your fine slope forum.

As always, Better Than I Deserve,
TIO, Montana

Man the place is ”racked”. I am very sorry for you especially the children. Education is everything in this fast moving world.

But I’m also happy to hear that you guys managed to get on your feet in no time. Well done. Thank you for sharing.
All the best

My hanger does not have anything in it to fly in those conditions!

Now where are all those pieces of my Jart?
