I'm game.

How's the wind this time of year?

I've been wanting to go up to a Chico fly, but it's just too damn far.

Maybe we can get Chico to come south a bit..  Smiley

Westerly Deta Breezes are already calming down.  The north winds will be blowing by the end of September though.

Always San Francisco in two weeks, Temps will certainly be cool. Steve & Chris should be coming along with Rhonda & me for the two days. David Gomberg is scheduled to be there along with Dean Jordan, Jose Sainz, Scott Skinner, Barry & Karen Ogletree, Dave Sablino & a good contigent of Power Kiters, Brian Champie, Jim Strealy and on & on. Of course Troy Gunn will be there again providing co-ordination and color from the sound tent and on the field.

Visit the website for full details, this event keeps growing under the enthusiasm of the promoter Ron Young with a growing list of sponsors & participants. This year looks to be an even better event then first three and really should be on your schedule.

Just pointing out something that is already coming up & within an easy daytrip of the Roseville gang. I don't recall any of them making this event in the past and since we look forward to it as much as WSIKF I think it really is a worthwhile event which would only be better if you all were there too.

Of course we would be up for any fly in Roseville too.

Apples & Oranges.

Gettiing a group of people together to fly and hang out vs. sharing limited field space with show flyers and civilians.

My lasting impression of the first S.F. Festival was lack of space. It would be fun to go and watch, but it's not a flyer friendly event.

Just flew yesterday at Buljan Park, not to bad, better wind then at the Festival this year.
I would be up for a fun fly.
Not going to be able to make it to S.F. will be at Bodega Bay (Blow By the Bay) that weekend for our annual family get together, hopefully the wind is just right. Events we do, lots of Kiting and some Metal detecting, (Picking up that Jewelry people lost), and lots of food. Four days of R&R Undecided (But lots of exercise to burn off that food) Wink

I would most definately be up for a Fly in Roseville.

I am new to this sport and any time I can connect with others who can help me learn or just hang out with would be great. I live in Elk Grove, so the trip would be easy. My folks live in Paradise, so that will give ma an excuse to go to Chico for the next Fly.

Hope to see you in Roseville.

Talked to not Bob the other day and he will be out of the state until late October.  He and his dad are going on a father son cross country road trip.

Maybe we need to schedule a Halloween fly in Roseville.  Break out your orange and black kites.
