At the field

Flying at the field

At the rate things are going,  it sure looks doubtful. Normally it'd be frozen and accessible. Maybe we'll get lucky and get a break from these successive storms.

Based on the weather forecast for the week, it looks like the night temperatures will be low enough to freeze the road and runway. Daytime temps in the low 30 degree range if it's calm and sunny will be very flyable even for an old fart like me with lousy cold weather tolerance. I'm sure I'll be giving it a try, possibly on Wed.

I am over busy at work, as usual.  And the weekends always blow.

Is anyone going flying this weekend? I have a new bnf e-flite opterra 2m flying wing that needs its maiden flight.

Yep, I'm planning on going out tomorrow around 11 if the road is good.  I've got a 2.5m powered glider that I just got back together after scavenging parts from it for the last few years.  Hopefully I'll see you then.  John C. is going out there today and I'll talk to him about the road condition and post here if it is not good.

The road was fine last weekend, so should still be good.

I'm planning to be there sometime in the morning.

Really had a great time meeting and getting to know some of the club members on Saturday. For someone new to the hobby, I was made to feel really welcome. Thanks for putting up with my rookie questions.

Jim F. and I had a Grand time at the field today. Bright sunshine, no clouds, calm winds. It was absolutely gorgeous. We had good flights from 30 minutes to 45 minutes and not one drop of fuel was burned! We soared with Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and a white hawk Jim will tell you about.  :lol:
