Hey everybody, this coming Sunday is the Ripon Fly. Who is planning to show up? Right now, it looks like there might actually be wind! Hope that holds. I missed last month's fly (was sick as a dog), so I am really needing a fix.

Fixed! Sorry about that Jynx. Apparently there's a Ripon in Canada too.

So, it's looking like a small turnout tomorrow. I am ever hopeful, though- the more the merrier. It's looking like there really will be wind, but now I am worrying over the fog. I don't mind driving in it when I can see the car in front of me; notsomuch when I can't.

What does it matter? The weather's probably all the same right?

No problem Jynx!

Well, the forecast is holding. Should be wind. I'm moving sloooow, so while I plan to be there I'm not sure what time.

Was good seeing everyone yesterday.  I think I left my PL quick release handles out on the field, gettin' old I guess.  Cool  If anyone happens to be in the area and noticed them, snag them for me.  No worries if not.  I was gonna drive back out and get them last night, but the gas to get out there would exceed their cost.  Wink

thanks,
  Mike
