I'm posting this picture for a couple of reasons:

1) To show off my Cherokee II.
This is the picture that the Vintage Sailplane Association is using to promote the 2013 event at Montague.

2) And to show the layout of our field.
The taxiway to the right of the main runway is the local RC clubs line for the no fly zone. At our XC event we try to have an even greater buffer. This year because of thermal drift we violated our own rules. Will not happen again. Launch site will be moved closer to the start gate if we have the same wind conditions next year.

Speaking of next year. How about something in May. As many know I'm obligated to do other things in June and July.

Good morning
Here's a brief clip from Montague 2012.
This was supposed to be a nice couple of flybys showing the crew.
Used a Radian, with an 808HD keychain camera.
We weren't able to try to break the unofficial Radian distance record of 22.7 miles set last year, but Team Broken (Flaming) Aero had a great time.
