Based on the WX forecast Friday AM, there was a general consensus that it would not be a good day to have a fly-in on Sat May 21st.
Although some HG and Advanced PG pilots will be heading out to Palomar to check out the conditions and maybe hang out.
Most felt that it would be better to push that date out to the next available date of June 11th so that there would be a greater possibility of good air and more pleasant conditions in the LZ for a wider audience of pilots.
