I'll be there and so will Steve Spooner. Denny (DWayne) from the Chico Fly is also coming-- we're going to do the TNT Zero vs Fearless SUL throwdown. Steve can play too with the Ocius SUL he's buying from Mike. Should be a fun time!

The wind is looking better & better for Ripon Sunday. Hope everyone makes it!

Somethings come up and I'm not going to be able to make it. Maybe next spring.

I'll be there.

I'm no replacement for Denny, but I'll take up some space out there on the soccer field.

I'll be there, I'm really looking forward to seeing all of you.

Thanks to Tony's help with MKF, I can now simultaneously lawn dart multiple kites.   I feel like an absolute beginner when attempting to fly two stunt kites at once (frustrating but fun). I keep thinking that with a little more practice my dueling lawn dart routine (and mid-air collisions) will become a distant memory. Thanks Tony for getting me started ;D

You're welcome :) Keep practicing and you'll soon confirm that Einstein's theory about two objects not occupying the same space at the same time is correct :)

See ya' !

I like that upper field, so it's all good. Got fog?

No fog. Gonna be on the warm side here, but there is already an sul breeze!

Had a great time at Mistlin Park today, even though the wind sucked :)

Thanks Allen. Thanks to Antone for the assembly help. Will be adding line length to accommodate the new triads. That was 30 and counting. It is great to see this fly taking on a life of its own. Good to see you all today.
Geo.

I had a good time ever though the wind didn't fully cooperate. It was good to see everyone.
Turns out the Fearless SUL has about the same wind range as the TNT Comp UL. They weigh about the same too.

I hadn't ran into Denny since Roseville when Steve won the mystery ballet on his birthday. Good memories. Good seeing friends old and new.
