It looks like a good day for Dockweiler today. Is anyone else interested in going?

Today, I'm not going to Dockweiler.
Best to those who show ... !

This is my first weekend miss in a long run starting on May 23, 2015, at Dockweiler.

Nice horizon below the wing plane!
Good to see you and Ian B. get some time along the ridge!

My next Dockweiler will be Funday Sunday (third Sunday of each month) on August 16, 2015, when Frank C. might have his new Alpha meet the Dockweiler airs.
So, I'll miss this week and next too; some fractional-second HG is done right near my home in the mean time.

Thanks for taking and posting the photos.

I'll have to ask the camera man to crouch down the next time so my feet can clear the horizon.    :srofl:

Dockweiler really provides a very special kind of flying.    :thumbup:
