This spring we should start an event up here, seems like all the flying events are down south. We should start a get together flying weekend up at Coyote or where ever there is a good flying slope that we agree upon. I am sure we would have a big turn out.

Ideas?

I like it!

Down South, we use almost any excuse to have a Flying Event/Get together, even if the wind doesn't show up.

I'm planning to hit Coyote Hills Saturday for some madien flights

you gotta make a deal with the wife, when there's wind all bet's are off, or give her a gift card to go shopping at a place that will take her all day to get to, that will keep her happy and let you get out of any plans she had for you.

I'm shooting for 1pm,

...since the wind kicks up a little later up here, than I'm used to. I should be set for a range of wing velocities, from 4 to 18mph
