We used to think we could only fly there in northwest flow, but after these two days we know for sure that due north is a perfectly good direction out there too. Most flew there for the first time, and a bunch of us flew to Waimea Bay and back. There were some nice strong thermals baking up through that cold air, and pilots were also flying some mind blowing convergence lines. We used our usual launch at the knob, and also a new launch on the north corner of the ridge, near the picnic table.
Thanks to Roland for leading the charge. Thanks to TommyRD for donating the large canister of cold refreshments! Thanks to caretaker Richard for tolerating our potential bomb outs in his field. It's a testament to the great conditions that we never needed to use it today! Every single pilot landed on the beach! Thanks to Duck for the grape juice and massive sandwich and other good stuff. Congrats to Larry Mac for flying his home site for the first time. Congrats to Laurel for getting back on the horse. Congrats to all the first timers out there.
I know there was a lot of footage shot today, and hopefully some pictures too. Let's see what you guys got! I will try to put my footage together.
Roll call: Alex, Duck, Woody, Dave, Roland, Harvey, Jorge, Bonnie, Bill, Thom, JK, Pete, Gaza, Laurel, Maui Tim, Scrappy, Steve, Nova, Larry Mac, Berndt, Ginny, Carolyn, Rich, Jim, CA Josh, Kevin.
