Frankfort Sloping!

Frankfort Sloping!

Last Sunday (December 17th), the LASS crew headed for the Frankfort Slope. A group of about 10 guys from around Kentucky, Ohio and even Tennessee sloped in light to moderate conditions. Tom Hill came up from Knoxville (I think) and brought along a bunch of DS machines. Dave Smith from Versailles cranked out his Halfpipe on the frontside and Gordy brought out his trusty RnR Synergy to rip some 3-meter DS laps. LASS’ own Tony Utley pushed the technological envelope with some aerial photography!

Speaking of photos, there are some photos here: 2006.12.17 – Frankfort!

Seems that LASS regular and handlaunch enthusiast Brian Kopke got together with fellow DLG-flinger Bruce Davidson and flew out at Bruce’s “ranch” in Shelbyville a few weeks ago. One of them returned home one plane shy of a quiver.

Brian got his Photon II discus-launched glider caught in the tallest tree on the lot. Repeated attempts to extract the plane have been fruitless. Bruce has sent in some photos to attest to it’s predicament as his goat (“Nickolas”) and his pygmy donkey (“Lucy”) stand guard.
