WElp next fun fly is coming up june 12.  HOpefully the weather will cooperate.  Been a good turn out so far. Any suggestions to add to this?  I've spread the word about it to quite a few people that have seen me out flying so we may have a few potential addictees joining us to try out stuff and watch.

Map link for any new people coming or if you forgot how to get there.  http://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF8&q=mistlin+sports+park+ripon+ca&fb=1&gl=us&hq=mistlin+sports+park+ripon+ca&hnear=mistlin+sports+park+ripon+ca&cid=0,0,16532008222262927255&z=16&iwloc=A

Last weekend at the San Ramon Art & Wind Festival I talked to several people about Ripon. Two for sure will be coming to play and several others  showed interest.

For the new people we fly at Mistlin Sports Park. From highway 99 take  Jack Tone Rd go North to River Rd, you will see the park.

Be glad to have you there JIm and so far the wind looks to be good. Forecast says 11 but thats relative to time of day.  Last fly it started with 3-8 variable untill about 4pm when it kicked up to 14 ish.  Use the link I posted and click on the little details tab.

I'll be there by 10:30 am to stake out an area and should have the SLKs up shortly after if the wind is right.  Most everyone starts showing up around noon.  See you there.

Lynn and I have been visiting friends in San Jose the past couple of days.  Plan to get away 10-11 and be in Ripon during the noon hour.

See you then..........

THis was probably the best fly  yet.  Not the greatest of winds but a great turn out and always good to see so many.  Jim and Lynn it was great having you and the couple of new people that came out will definitely be coming back.   Jim, George, good to see you guys out again too.  See you all at next months fly Smiley

We are planning to be at the fly on July 10th. 

We'll probably pack both lunch and dinner and stay late.  Last month temp and wind were just getting nice when we all packed up and left.

Besides, if we get back to Walnut Grove too early, I'll end up doing some more painting on the house. Embarrassed

LOL sounds good winds are supposed to be around 10-11 and sunset is about 8:50pm so it can be a long fly day.  Hmm rc neon kits for night flying?
