Being there back in 2016 I can picture myself there a couple days ago. I sure wish I could have been!

Hey Bob, are you as sore as Joe was a week ago? If so, drink pickle juice! :lol:

I couldn't fly on the day of the Otto meet because of Windsports restrictions requiring USHPA membership. So I wasn't at all sore on the Otto day. But when I broke the site record the next day (with 102 flights) ... that's another matter!!    :shock:

We missed you Scott. Maybe you can make it out next year.    :thumbup:

Erica trying out my new custom swing seat system.

Next week I'll be replacing the seated adapter bars with ones that have a nice smooth curve where the bottom corners are on the ones shown in the photo. These adapter bars, for seated flying, can be put on or taken off the prone rigged glider in one minute.

I have lots of videos and some stills of the event but I've been so busy with my current projects that i haven't edited and uploaded the videos yet
