Hello Fellow Hawks!!!

It's my great pleasure to let you know that John "Ole" Olson will be holding a book signing at our Second Sunday Fly-In and Club Meeting this Sunday, November 10th, 2013. You can read more about Ole (including two full Chapters from his hang gliding thrillers: "Tales from the Wild Blue Yonder") at:

     viewforum.php?f=27

Just look for the topics authored by "WingedGringo". : )

We will also have our normal Second Sunday food and drinks, and my Falcon 195 should be available all day for anyone who wants to take it for a flight.

So please come out to Torrey this Sunday and hang out with your fellow Torrey Hawks!!

Thanks as always for your membership!!

Here are some pictures from our Second Sunday in November, 2013 ...

Unfortunately, the winds were too light for sustained flight.

A few paragliders gave it a try, and here's what they looked like when we last saw them (on their way to the beach):

As usual, the Little Hawk Hang Glider was a hit with our guests (who were able to have fun running with it):

For a "non-flying day", we sure made the best of it.

Location: At large in North America. These days I'm down to wandering between New Mexico and Old Mexico.
Bob muchas gracias amigo for your enthusiastic help and support. :srofl:
Hawks, clearly I would not have been welcome at Torrey in any degree if not for Bob. The owner/operator of the place just gave me the cold shoulder, which was fine by me, but puzzling, to say the least. Clearly, in his mind I am one of "them" and what I have to sell is of no interest. :crazy:
Bob made my visit worthwhile by opening his wallet and buying seven (7) of my thrilling novels, all of them with words in 'em, which is all it takes to push my buttons. I only sold one (1) more book, to some kid from China, who I hope was old enough to read it but I'm not so sure. :lol:
Thanks again Bob, you made my :D day!

You're more than welcome Ole!!

It's been almost three years since these pictures were taken, but I still have your books on my desk.

The outreach we did that day (letting people stand by Little Hawk for pictures) is no longer allowed at Torrey, and USHPA is refusing to renew the Torrey Hawks Chapter Status.    :(

But the US Hawks has grown and grown.    :D

Fly safe Amigo.     :salute:
