Steve and I had a fun day of flying at Dockweiler today. We set up both my Alpha 210 and Steve's Wills Wing Spectrum. We each got multiple flights on each glider.

Here are some pictures of Steve flying his Spectrum:

I was hoping for another Christmas at Dockweiler, but the forecast is pretty poor.

So I'll just leave it at this ...

Merry Christmas!!

This Quote from JoeF:
Joe wrote:the County thus fulfills its mandate to bring health to the citizens via recreation solutions; the result of recreation bring a vibrate and prosperous citizenry and strong State, it is hoped. In any arrangement participants and visitors have a common law responsibility to avoid hurting property and persons; there is also a common responsibility to report to enforcement agents and assist agents as needed for the protection of property and persons. If a visitor/participant injures property or persons or self, then he or she is responsible to the injured owners or persons unless gross negligence was involved by the non-self-managers or persons. The millions of visitors individually to the beaches are not required to obtain third-party insurance to cover their recreational activities.


A BIG THANK YOU JOE, and the rest of the gang.

Your writing style so allows us to see the "old school" , respectful, and "playfully leaping & tumbling" attitude of what "RE-CREATION" (a lost art) is all about. Personal relationships are at the core of US HAWKS, and why Dockweiler, and other sites, remains strong with the community they are part of. (we will have to wait and see about Torrey) Good on ya.

Here is the best to y'all in the new year, from the "canyons of the ancients"
