Here's a few pictures from the Fly-In on Saturday. Thanks to Alamogordo and the USFS for the use of the launch and LZ, and to all who came to help - Wyatt, Terry, Nancy, Finis, Steve and Steve. The Tom & Cindy West Memorial Fun Fly was a fine and safe event!

If you'd like to see a short video of our 2019 fly-in from Finis Miller, go to this site: https://vimeo.com/splododyne
And Steve Crye supplied a video of his PG flight as well: https://youtu.be/lF2vw2eqdNY

It only took 6 years from Bill's original request, but I finally wrote the "BBCode" tags to embed Vimeo videos in the forum. Here's how to use both the "vimeo" and "youtube" tags in the forum:

Original links:
    https://vimeo.com/338775551
    https://youtu.be/lF2vw2eqdNY


How to use new "vimeo" (and older "youtube") BBCode tags:
    [vimeo]338775551[/vimeo]
    [youtube]lF2vw2eqdNY[/youtube]

Embedded videos:





Thanks Robin, Bill, and the RGSA!!    :wave:

Thanks for making that visible, Bob. I enjoyed rehashing our fly-in from back in May. It's time to prepare now for the Columbus Day Gathering in October. (October 11 through 14.)
