WHAT a fantastic weekend, I'm glad I dropped down to Oregon for the weekend While Saturday was a little less than even breezy, a Sunday at Seaside more than made up the difference with a truly spectacular day!

thanks everyone!

What a FANTASTIC weekend, especially yesterday at the beach (3-8 mph and sunny)! :)

Deepest thanks to Monkey, Wayne, Eli, Katrina, Brett, Bri, Chuck, Kevin, CJ, Amy, Wyatt, Scott, Cathy, Geezer, Theresa and of course TK for a wonderful two days.

Farthest traveled awards go to CJ (from Montana) and Monkey (Vancouver BC). :)

Special thanks again to Chuck for doing the legwork on our Hillsboro flying location, even if the wind did end up being really poor.

Such a wonderful group of people, and so much improvement by yesterday afternoon, it was a real pleasure to share the field with y'all.

What do you say, shall we do it again sometime? :)

Heads up guys, we've made a last minute change... Headed to Sunset Beach (near Seaside OR) tomorrow, wind was really light and variable in Hillsboro today, forecast is worse tomorrow... Beach wind is in order... I'll send a PM to Cameron and MercFlyer too, just in case.


That explains it.
Was gonna stop by and yak with ya on my lunch time on Sunday, but nobody was there.Posted Image
Just figured you went looking for a better spot.
Glad Sunset beach was better.

In case no one could tell, I had a great time with the people and the kites. The wind really does blow in Hillsboro sometimes, but nobody can predict when. (For instance, this evening was rather nice.)

Sunset Beach is so close, that I would be up for this sort of event every month or two. I know that means finding time among many other commitments, and time for CJ to drive from Montana (?), but I will certainly participate.

Thanks especially to John and TK for fitting this in two days before leaving for Singapore.

I like the impromptu thing... Works out really well for me with such a busy schedule, and it keeps it informal. :)

No replacement for the West Coast Rev Clinic (full curriculum), but awesome for the year in-between!

I'm up for keeping this going, and will definitely do a separate topic like this one when I've got another good weekend for it.

Love, hugs and good wind!

I've posted the photos I took on Saturday in the Gallery area:It was certainly sunny, even if the wind was feeble.

Guess who showed up at the Fairgrounds tonight? A very nice, steady 10 mph wind from the north. I flew a mid-vent for the evening. What a change from Saturday. We could easily have put up a dozen kites with people flying in groups.

Great photo CJ.

I would love to see the other group and your many other shots. Did you take any on Sunday? Would like to see what I missed on Sunday :kid_cussing:

I did love the networking on Saturday between wind spurts :kid_smartass:
