The cool thing about Delia park is there are a few field options you can choose to fly from based on wind conditions or if the fields are being played on (soccer / foot ball)
Here's a pic with crude highlights showing what parts of the park we have flown at.
The arrows indicate the take off and land directions.



So where do you go for breakfast?

When we flew there, we used the area on far left and far right. Is the big mound still in place in the left area?

Breakfast location varies, but we always agree here on thread by Wed evening. Most recently Moni's on 24 just west of Romeo Plank at 8:30. (Flying after at Stoney Church 26& Jewell). When weather warms we will probably move to the Pantry on 27 (flying after at Stony Creek metropark) or Romeo cafe (flying at Armada Aerodrome )

Yup!
The staff here at Global HQ are right on it. So skilled are they that the casual observer would think they were doing nothing, but when nothing is what you have to do, you have to do something to do nothing.

A quick anecdote. At the dollar tree store near me .
Cashier to young boy in line with his mother "what are you doing today?"
Young boy "nothing"
Cashier "well how do you know when you are done?"

Everybodyís licensing old names this company is using Victrola. Anything to get into the market I guess.
This is for Eric:

You know those bags you can get at a convention for handouts? Pick up one for me.

OH, put that boat and heli/drone copter in it and bring the bag to the next breakfast.

Thanks,

Luck, yeah yeah sure sure

I might have to have a go with the Swamp boat and Lockeys Vixen
if the wind will stay calm enough.

This is the time where Slide and Go capable planes really shine !

No snow, but the pond is frozen nicely. Wanna try T&Gs? The plane retriever is at his post for you.

No, Ken , Ranger is buried out behind the pond where he liked to play. That's Shadow our Lab/Catahoula mix. He has some big paws to fill, but he's coming along at 3.5 months.

Steve, winds aren't in our favor over the next couple of days, but we'll have to keep watch. Sounds like snow by weekend on news tonight.
