Hello Fellow Torrey Hawks,

Our "Second Sunday" for July will be on July 13th, 2014.

Here's the current wind forecast as of 9am on Friday:

Sun Jul 13
8am 9am 10am 11am Noon 1pm 2pm 3pm 4pm 5pm 6pm 7pm 8pm 9pm 10pm 11pm Mdnt
W W W W W W W W W W W W W W W S S
2 2 2 9 9 9 10 10 10 7 7 7 7 7 7 2 2


From my experience, that forecast (National Weather Service) tends to predict lighter winds than we usually experience at the site. So we should have some relatively good flying around mid day and early afternoon.

Also, through a generous donation by Torrey Hawks member Joe Faust, we have a supply of Otto Lilienthal's:

    Birdflight As The Basis Of Aviation
      A Contribution Towards a System of Aviation

We will be giving away at least one book at each of our upcoming fly-ins ... including this Sunday. The book was published by Mike Markowski, and it contains documentation of Otto Lilienthal's early research into manned flight.

Thanks again for your membership in the Torrey Hawks!!
