Sorry no blog in a long time. Between a couple weekends of rain and our Ocala FSS contest I haven't been up on the "hill" untill this weekend.
In the meantime we had a great contest in Ocala, see RCgroups thread:
Also some of our guys (Jamie and Mike) hit the World Soaring Masters, see thread:

In the meantime, this weekend was not fanatastic. As Paul M said, "I would rate Saturday a 3 out of 10". We had about 7mph breeze out of the East. Which put about 1/2 dozen guys on the East slope.
I spent my time with the other 1/2 dozen fliers on the winch. All the way over on the West side. We had a lot of problems with the retriever and the thermals were very small. Not good. No crashes though, and only a small mid-air accident. So I guess it wasn't a bad Saturday.
Next weekend, I won't be up (work has called me in), so I hope someone gets some pictures and I hope some better flying conditions.
