    I'll be out there tomorrow. Sunday and Monday are family obligations, at least for me. I understand that a film crew is at McKinney High School with 2nd place in the Finals TARC team right now and may be out there tomorrow. They might be disappointed if the wind keeps us from flying anything besides E2X and streamers. The field is covered with hay bales.

    Yes we were out there on Saturday. Other than a LOC Hi-Tech on an F26 and a G77 it was all low power. A good time was had by all and the breeze was welcome even if it kept us from going big. A professional film crew was there recording the exploits of one of the McKinney High School All Girls TARC team members for some kinda documentary or commercial. They brought Dickeys BBQ !

    Hopefully the weather will cooperate for y'all.

    My heavy travel will be done at the end of July, so I expect we'll be under a burn ban in August to further delay me getting a chance to fly something.
    I'm not very smart, but I can lift heavy things...

    Today's weather can only be described as "brutal" and Saturday looks even worse. https://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin...y=Gunter%2C+TX So you brave souls with the stamina for fun in the sun...take it easy and stay hydrated. This hobby isn't worth a heat stroke.

    I don't think I'm gonna be able to get away during the first week of school after having been in Japan half the time since February. I'll have to miss AirFest this year.

    I'm looking forward to some great flight reports from you guys...
