Well I've got a ~60oz Fat Albert 60" that I plan to be maidening at Parker... seems like lots of North in the forecast, which is typical of the winds we get this time of year in Santa Barbara too...

I'll be there about 2:00
Bruce and Allen kind of want to fly at Camp 9 but they might just go to Parker.

Does this tend to happen later in the afternoon? Just asking because I'm coming up from Anaheim.

Parker can be good all day.
Today was blowing about 35 and pretty smooth on the back side we got there about 2 in the afternoon. Bruce, Alan, Joe M.,Parker Bob, Joe-LVSloper, Tim and John P. we're there today. Top speed was mid 320s or something like that. most seeds were about 17O to 310mph.

Planes that were flying were Kinetic 100, carbon sunbirds, D-80, D-60, Vector DS, JW, SOS and Johns custom wing.
