They'll be there, maybe the very first DAW KA-6 too. I went to visit Dave the other night and he sent me away with about 5 planes, the KA-6 prototype included. : )
Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Well another one for the history books. Thanks again to all the volunteers to make this event happen; Lynsel, Bruce Devisser, Tim Candee, Brian Seargent, Brian Chan, Jerry H., Bob DeMattei, the tow pilots and of course Alberto of Hobby Club and a few more I can't recall. Thanks to all who participated and supported the event. It was good to see old friends and renew friendships again and see a lot more new faces this year. I was there for Saturday only this year and I was flying the slope, so the pics below, which are a few of the many I took that day, mostly reflect the slope activity during that day. Maybe we'll show the rest at the meeting.

Great photos, Sean. And another thank you to the folks that put this great event together. I'd forgotten how much I missed slope soaring.

What was the name of the pilot who owned the beautiful Fauvel! I passed the link to the manufacturer when inquiring about buying one, but did not have the owners name!
