As a reminder the Thursday evening flying sessions have been going on for two weeks now. The weather has not been the best (windy last night) but we have been having a good time. This will continue every Thursday till the end of September. Right now we have daylight till 9:00 so come on out. For those working on LSF task the calmer evening air is a good time to make landings or work on other skills.
We also picked up where we left off last year by going to the Mexican restaurant in J-town after flying for a group dinner and some hanger flying.
Now after saying what I did above I must say next week we will NOT meet on Thursday ( June 23) evening. For that matter we will not be at the field on the following Sunday either. This next week is the Mid-South competition in Atlanta. Gordy, Tony, Ron and myself will be flying with the southern boy’s next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There is no one left to get the winch to the field on these days. This coming Sunday we plan on being at the field by 11:00 am.
We have new club t-shirts. Light grey (NOT ORANGE!) in color as Ben keeps reminding me. The logo is more in line with what is on the web site in the upper corner of the screen. Shirts are $12 each. I am also looking to take orders for a white shirt with a collar in the design style of golf shirts. If we can get a dozen commitments we can order this shirt. Several members have expressed a desire for a more “classy” shirt for contest flying than a t-shirt. If you are interested let me know so I can add you to the list. Price would be about $25 each.
