Ripon monthly fun fly is coming this Sunday.  I canít think of a better way to spend 9/11, then in a park flying a kite.  I plan on being there around noon.

Yep since the fest was more work than fly for a host of reasons and the requests were made, THe fun fly is on for next weekend.  I'll be there around 9 to catch some no wind practice.

It looks like work will be getting in the way on Sunday. If I can make it at all it will be late in the afternoon. Have fun my fellow kiters. Geo.

good day for socializing but not so good for flying.  Lots of sul practice.

That's too bad, but it's sorta the nature of the Valley. It's cool that you guys can get as much wind as you do. I'm going to try for next month. Heat should be down a notch or two by then.

I laughed because when we left Sacramento winds were ~15mph gusting to 20, then we get to Ripon and it was ~1mph gusting to 3.  Heh, well not that bad but it was ironic.  Usually Ripon has much smoother/stable/higher winds.

I was raised and spent much of my adulthood in Fresno. As far as I'm concerned, one Valley town is much like the next.... except on days when it's not. ;-)

So, do people call it "Rippin" or "Rip on"? My dad sold ag chemicals and at the end of his workday, he'd come home and tell us of his adventures. Once in awhile he'd come home and say that he'd had to go to Rippin. I've never been there, but have always meant to go. Now I've got a reason, so it's all good.
