Looks like TK, Yuji and myself will be at West Delta Park this Saturday (October 23) if the weather is suitable.

Hope to see some of you there, probably from 10am onward. ;)

One old friend I met years ago at LC at the festivals! Hoping that others could join in!! Know it's short notice and all, but going and inviting any to come!! Nothing particularly special about tomorrow, just hoping to beat the rain!! Know it's the middle of the week and all - but if you can get away!! :) Might make it up this weekend (Sat.), won't be until after noon though!! :angry:

Speaking of which, I'm awaiting confirmation from Cathy Tung regarding that but it's likely the first weekend of dec, the 4/5th

I'll confirm once we know for sure.

Hey SV, you might be able to get another person to pay for you with Paypal maybe, then give them the cash or whatever.

Would this work John?

I could do it but live rather a long way away for the exchange of cash :wacko:

I guess Delta is a little far for me to travel when the weather is cold and I'm usually ready to go after an hour or two. If you went today, how was it?

I went to the Wash Co Fairgrounds today and had a couple of great hours with my vented 1.5, including a tube tail part of the time. Yesterday I had about an hour with the Hawaiian. Friday Ron Payola and I put up Rev 1.5 full sails but the wind was too squirrely to consider it enjoyable, so we mostly just caught up on each other's recent adventures.

I'll start watching more closely for postings, as I would really like to get some more team time, but December is getting pretty busy, so maybe in January?

Meanwhile, Merry Christmas to all.

Chuck
