Based on what I’m seeing for the weather we are a go for
flying Sunday at Twin Towers.
BUT, Norm Poti scouted the field a couple of days ago
and says there are many horse jumps still on our field.
I contacted the parks but Norm checked last night and
they had not yet removed the jumps from the field. There
is also standing water on the field. It may be dry
enough by Sunday morning to use our vehicles to drag the
The responses on what people want to fly looks like
winch launched MOM thermal duration but some are also
bringing ALES to fly after.
If we can’t deploy enough winches due to jumps and water
we will have to improvise. The wind profile shows an
increase to 15+ mph by 2 PM we want to be at the field
early so we can have winches setup by 10.
If we get in at least 4-5 rounds of MOM then open
winches and fly some ALES skirmishes.
If you want to help drag horse jumps be at the field
before 9 AM. Watch here for an update on field condition
but don’t count on it.
We may have to deal with what we find Sunday morning.
