Meet in LZ 9:00
Where: 14811 Black Mountain Rd San Diego, CA 92127
Jan 9th & 10th 2016 : Double Site Work Party & Flying - Two Days - Two Sites
Both Little Black and Horse are in need of some much needed TLC.
Please come out to help make "your" sites shine to their former glory for all of us to enjoy. Lots of hands make for quicker work allowing for better flights today and Tomorrow!
We will be leveraging the predicted rains to help with our efforts. So Rain is good and what we are looking for! Work Parties will be held regardless of weather conditions and post work flying will be weather dependent.
Still a Go for this weekends work parties, Sat then Sunday.
Per NOAA Horse looks clear till after 4pm on Sat with 40% chance till 70% @ night
Then on Sun @ LB is showing 40% in the am and clearing to the afternoon and night. Other WX sites also show rain on Sunday.
Priority is to get the Horse LZ cleaned up. Not sure about how soupy the road up to Horse is going to be . . . and we may want to stay off it and or minimize traffic on it. Traffic us should be limited to 4x4 vehicles only. Greg is available this weekend with his tractor and not the other weekends. If too much rain on Sunday, we will reschedule the LB work party till two weeks out with Pref on Fly-in for the 16th vs WX alternate of the 23rd. Work Party scope of work See below.
Martin Palmaz (USHPA Executive Director) will likely be flying in to join us for our Fly-In on the 16th. He would like to talk with us, answer any questions, and get our feedback regarding USHPA & Insurance issues.
