2015 July 12 Dockweiler notes
Shelly Butler, Ian Brubaker, and JoeF flew the Condor 330. JoeF got most distance into the wind. Ian gained good altitude and had one-way soars in light breeze. JoeF had 8 flights. On the eighth: right back thigh muscle knotted again, as yesterday on the fourth of four flight. So: 12 flight by JoeF this weekend.

This season, so far: I flew Dockweiler May 23, May 30, each weekend of June (one was a two-flight-days weekend), then July 5, July 11, and July 12: Eight days of flying (many flights per day). Leg muscles have been getting needed workout; strains are limiting the number of flights. Gliders: Antares, Condor, Falcon 3, Dream 205, Alpha 210 owned by Windsports, Alpha 210 owned as demo for Windsports: six gliders. The taking turn with friends has been most special.

Thanks, Frank! Right on. That is what was in my mind, but it did not get out of the keyboard.

Alpha 210 owned by Wills Wing as demo for Windsports for the one day:
is the bunch of W words that were sitting in my tired brain.

Thanks, Mike, for showing the Alpha 210 setup and flight and packing. And your great talk at Sylmar later in the evening!
