Thanks, nice shot of the ridge ! :thumbup:

Even in your photo the radar station is already gone. It was on the cliff very near the trailer, just south of launch.

What year was it removed? Do you remember that huge parabolic dish? I never saw it operational, maybe only the weather station.

I hope the dusting off is going well!! We'd love to see any memorabilia that you might have.

Also, here's the television coverage of last year's event:

And here's a link to reserve a Tee Shirt from this year's 45th Anniversary Meet:

Hey Bob, I have some old airbrushed and screened shirts from the time. Should I start digging those out too? Do you think anyone would be interested?

There's still a few threads holding my fav one together, white body with red 3/4 sleeves.

Another hang gliding VIP attending: I just got word from Dave Cronk that Tom Price will be coming with him to the meet. :clap:

This is definitely going to be a day to not be missed by anyone wishing to be immersed among great spirits of hang gliding. One of the spirits that will not be visible to us, but I'm sure will be felt there is Richard Miller and many other HG pioneers who have flown on to the next thermal.
