I'm going to bring 2 dozen bratwursts, and the same number of buns. I also have plates and napkins. We are out of cups. I have some plastic utensils but very few. I also have some ketchup and mustard. I think we are treating this as BYOB, but if we have many non-member guests they probably won't bring anything. So, it would not hurt to have a little extra in the way of drinks. Some NA would be handy for those who do not drink.

The latest information from the flying field location is that it is a muddy mess. Jacob Edson, who lives about a mile from us, tells James that if there is any more rain tonite it will be days before things dry out enough to access the site. I have not heard from the Board yet, but I'd expect this even to be cancelled. I was really looking forward to it.

Anyone up for making a day of it next Saturday. Just stay out there after the Partners event, and Oktoberfest it. I'll do it. I'm out there till 3 or 4 most Saturdays anyway. Since the spouses are invited maybe they won't mind you being gone for a day. It'd be flying, eating, flying, BSing, eating, BSing, flying, drinking beer (getting driven home). The LED lights are on my Slow Stick for evening flying.

James and I took a really good look at the access road situation today, including how things are working when it is actually raining. Yes, we were running around in the adobes in the rain. Not too nuts. Anyway, even if the remainder of the week is dry and we got no added moisture access into the field on Saturday is going to be iffy. In my opinion, to be fair to the Partners folks we need to cancel the event as soon as possible so they can contact all their folks. See the flying site conditions thread for more details on what we found out there today.
