BrigantinoThursday 5/19 9:15 AM


Wether looks good again for Thursday. Rich and I are bringing equipment at 9:15.

Brigantino is not affected by shelter-in-place but still use common sense.

So Brigantino is not in Hollister City limits or San Benito County?

Don and Rich are Not Bringing Gear Tomorrow


Things are evolving quickly. There is now similar restriction in San Benito County. Given this, Rich and I will not be bringing launch gear to live up to the intent of the order.

Called Thursday to check on our use of Brigantino. Was told no organized activity (that includes driving in with equipment) until at least August!! We can fly as individuals using carried in equipment (e.g., hi-start).

When will Brigantino Park reopen??


Any updates? I have been flying at Davis Middle School in So. SJ . There is a great grass field there and never any people except a few walkers. Have not set up a winch, just electric launch.

9-11 Update: Park is now available to SBSS. Anyone going out this Sunday?

Brigantino Sunday 9/12


Rich and I are tentatively going to bring out launch gear tomorrow. It's tentative based on air quality. I will post tomorrow by 7AM if it's a go or not. Saturday AM the AQI was 156 but predicted to be lower tomorrow.

Air quality is a little better for today. Let's give it a try. I for one am tired of being in the house all of the time. See you out by 9.
