I dunno, guys airnet showing winds peaking today at 11 mph by 5pm . Tomorrow somewhat better. Could make for an "interesting" combat session as we all try to stay together.

I arrived at the the killing fields around 6:45 pm . It was deadly silent. No remnants of streamers, props or foam. Checked the refuse cans for any evidence of a battle.....non to be found. The sun was setting low in the horizon and a light northeasterly breeze. I launched a Stingray with a orange and black streamer and circled the field to entice any lurkers, but none were there. Next an F&F with LEDs aglow, but still no takers....just dead silence.
I then packed up and headed home wondering why I didnít get the memo.

Larry,
I preceded you by about an hour and a half and too was by myself. The wind was so bumpy and wild, I was lucky (no skill) to get my plane back on the ground. Thoughts were going through my mind like "Where are you going?" "Why that way?" "Oh No, Pull up!"

I really did land on the field, amazing.

Sorry I missed it. Out here wind was crazy and I got caught up in honeydos. It finally calmed down around 8, and sounds like it did at stony as well.

If we do stony, we'll be looking into the sun. Not the worst thing. What's the consensus?

Hi Larry, glad to hear your combat spirit is still alive. I do miss our combat sessions. Down here they do combat Friday afternoons, which unfortunately doesn't work for me due to other commitments with the misses. Have to keep a balanced life style. As the saying goes, "If Momma's not happy, no one is happy".
