It was a great event, and I think we all learned a great deal. Joe's morning lecture was full of useful information, the flying was great, and the drills we did in the afternoon were very helpful.

Special thanks go out to Joe Greblo, Andy Beem, Kat Shaw and Kathy Thompson for really making it a great day and a successful event!

Yes, indeed - absolutely great clinic! I know that a lot of hard work went into this event and I appreciate everyone's effort, the food & drink, the space to make it happen, and the expert instruction. The flight was also spectacular! It's rare to get above launch in the mountains during the summer, and I saw people over the TopaTopa's!! The convergence also delivered as usual over Andy's LZ - if it was any stronger, I might have had to toss my chute just to get down and finish the clinic :-)
Fantastic day in beautiful Ojai!!!
