Thursday, April 11

There was Andy with tandem, Ron and I.
We launched around 2, it was a bit windy, and the winds were
a bit switchy and choppy.
We were getting near 4.3, but nothing inspiring about it, specially
towards T-s.
Later I got to 5.1+ west of towers, but the winds had picked up
more and it wasn't getting any smoother.
So, basically, we played on the west side mostly and called a day.

About our setup area and launch ramp:
Big thanks again, to Joe and friends, who did a tremendous amount of work there. You won't recognize it.
The setup and approach are wider and flatter. There are 2 designated "pads"for hang checks.
The ramp is wider too and steeper. It also has moved east a little.

So heads up, on your next launch be aware of different from usual
air currents around you, adjust accordingly and watch your AOA.

Ron took some quick snapshots...

Thanks for the report Vrezh and Ronaldo for the photos and most of all to Greblo and crew for improving the launch ramp and setup area.
Cheers,
