The forecast has become a bit less promising, but it sounds like it will still be "doable", but from say 1PM on...

Friday's prediction for today under-rated the direction and wind speed, and today was a "normal" medium Fermin day, despite the marginal prediction.

Tonight: Cloudy, with a low around 58. West wind 5 to 15 mph becoming south southeast.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 59. Southeast wind around 10 mph becoming west southwest.

Sunday Night: Patchy fog after 11pm. Otherwise, cloudy, with a low around 58. West southwest wind between 5 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.



How many of you plan to show up no matter what? If there are enough folks, since there is no backup date for this race, I will risk it. If we are likely to get a poor showing, then I'd rather cancel it now and plan on doing something else with my day.

PLEASE CHIME IN with your intentions.

Again, Friday's prediction for today under-rated the direction and wind speed, and today was a "normal" medium Fermin day, despite the marginal prediction.

I am in, even if not stellar. Perhaps we should gather at noon, if the AM shows SE winds?

We do have Saturday June 25 showing as a backup date, but is this taken by the delay of the Vincent event last week? Will we be doing one event or the other on that date if tomorrow is out?

Looks like @ a dozen or so. If anyone else is going to back out, please let us know as this is a critical number for Fermin due to the landing delay.
Clay and Frank I haven't heard from and Sam, Bruno, and WD are out for one reason or another.

Lets make the show up time 12:30, and racing as soon after as is possible. We will plan on flying until at least 5:30 or 6 as needed to get the rounds. The SD guys can push their departure back an hour.

Target

I'm in. The primer on the fuse is drying at this moment and the TX battery is charging. If we gather at noon, I should have plenty of time to paint, wet sand and polish it.

That's a bummer, Sam.

Hope you feel better, and have a plane to fly, very soon.

OK, for those that want to know-

Summary is, the wind never shifted from south or southeast all day. After @ 3:30, a few of us went on a slope safari to the top of the hill and flew a spot that only works on the 3 days out of the year that it is from the South.

After that, we went to dinner and chatted about plane setups and the old days of DS, to which I mostly listened.

The back up race will be helmed by DocHolliday48 on either June 25 or 26, stand by for that announcement.

Thanks to those who showed.

Bob I am making a plea for 26th if possible as I have a wedding on the 25th to go to.
