I received a call today from one of the pilot in the LZ for their XC try for Tularosa, NM, to Dog Canyon and back maybe.
Pilot reports that it should be a good day for flying the course and also that the new wind sock was stuck but a 7 mph wind brought it around finally.
I texted that we (I) will take an extension ladder over next weekend. We may have to flush the dust out of the bearing and re-lubricate it.
I recommended streamers on the north fence for now. Mike E. and I usually put up flags on the north fence when we fly. :thumbup: :wave:

Robinator, Driver Man Extraordinaire.
I used some supposedly corrupt files of our May 12, 2017 XC flight to post another YouTube upload.
Mike has ordered new radios as the two he had along on his 41 mile flight gave him twice as much trouble as one radio will.
This video tells of how to be a good chase drive and how to practice for the event.

My look at the weather for this weekend is blown out Friday.
Good Saturday.
Doable Sunday with thermals.
Too ESE Monday. (But the mountain range could block the east push and we could find thermals)
However when it comes to weather forecasters I hold bank tellers and heart surgeons in higher regard.

Maybe Ann can post some pictures. I'm going to be too busy to spend much time posting for the next three weeks.
Velma Woodcock gave me all of her pictures of this Memorial Day Weekend flying so if time permits I'll put some up.
Robin will post an account I'm sure. :thumbup:
