July 26th, 2017 - Freedom from USHPA Day at Dockweiler

Postby Bob Kuczewski » Wed Jul 26, 2017 7:48 pm

I would like to mark today - July 26th, 2017 - as an important day in the history of hang gliding.

Thanks to those who've helped ... you know who you are.

That's all I can say for now.     :thumbup:

A lot of foolish people think they're hang gliding with parachutes - but nobody ever thinks they're parachuting with hang gliders.

Next time you're found,
with your chin on the ground
There's a lot to be learned,
so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can't
Move a rubber tree plant

But he's got high hopes,
he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie,
in the sky hopes

So any time you're gettin' low
'stead of lettin' go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call,
and your back's to the wall
There's a lot to be learned,
that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin' that dam

'cause he had high hopes,
he had high hopes
He had high apple pie,
in the sky hopes

So any time you're feelin' bad
'stead of feelin' sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon
They'll be bursted soon
They're just bound to go pop
Oops there goes another problem kerplop


Thanks to all members of the U.S. Hawks who've maintained their high hopes.

Oh Boy,
I can hardly wait for the breaking news.
Just to be sure I'm going to start surfing the Hawks late Monday in case the news breaks just after the closing of the business day.
But I'll have to guess if I should start looking at about 5:00 Eastern time or maybe Pacific time :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:
Or maybe just after midnight on Monday.
I GOT IT!
I'LL JUST PARK HERE AND KEEP CLICKING ON, "REFRESH," EVERY THREE SECONDS STARTING NOW!

If the web site seems a little slow for the next few days ...
... just picture Bill clicking "REFRESH" every three seconds.
