Is the parking for the river area, (don't know if it has a regular name) the same as it has always been. Small little lot off of town. I've been in there with my Van before but not sure about navigating that area with my Van and trailer. Other options? Hoping to get in early enough Friday to fly for a bit. But we will see. Forecast looks NE Friday ideas?

Hey Chris,

I'm happy to loan most of my gear. While this Blade has a pretty small range it is a great engine. Had it for years and never been spanked by it !
I'll be sure and toss it in ! Jeff will like to see the shampoo job so it is win, win !

:bigok:

PS bring your own KK if you find you need them.

I'm kinda thinking that since the forecasters didn't mention this hail storm, that perhaps they will also be wrong about the forecasted E winds for tomorrow

I'm not responsible for the hail. The light snow in the mountains didn't follow me. This storm came from onshore. So, tomorrow should be great. Right?

The flying was not great, but three days on the beach in relative sunshine was incredible. I think Saturday was warmer than some of the days I was down for in June or September. Awesome to see everyone. Thanks for suggesting it, Bugeyed.

In case someone posts any pics of me dancing or of the sand ditches, it's all a setup, it wasn't me, I had nothing to do with any of it.

It was nice to stand around and tell stories and lies for the day. I know I had a great time.:crazy:

A bad day at the beach is better than the best day at work. Wait a minute, this is my work.
A bad day at the beach is a good day at work.:lol: Yeah thats what I meant to say.:cool:

Nice video Big Kid. Great choice of music; are you trying to give a little culture the group? Sort of like adding yeast to the wort when making beer.
How many rods did you guys break?

I don't listen to much music anymore and I have no idea of how to get some with out paying. So if youtube is willing to give it for free and it is already there, it's a no brainier. Besides, I didn't recognize any of the bazillion songs and artists that were listed except a few of the oldies. But you are correct, our group needs a bit of culture.:lol:

Gerald broke only one tube and it was the ferrules so it will be a easy fix.

Would have been a great day for the kite drags, but nobody had the nerve to try it out.
I was talking to a couple that decided NOT to do a downwinder and put his kite away, but asked about the small foils we fly. I showed him a 2m NPW on just bridle and handles. Bad Move, butt scudding at 35mph is very hard on the jeans. But what a rush, so I guess I am the winner, the world champion, the best in the west, the undefeated champ. I am the Mohamed Ali of Kite Drags. just glad I stopped before I ended up with this:moon:
Think I will hit the trophy shop later today and have a big 4 foot high trophy made up. I am the Greatest..:lol:
