Lots of Wind this week! 9/26

I was out of town this weekend up in NJ. Wind was smoking up there. Back in ATL looking at the forecast and things look pretty darn good this week. Anybody thinking about going?

Neil, On Thursday you might be able to do a downwinder from Old Federal to Vanns without the wing

To paraphrase Chris Voith: Yes, all the damn time.

Starting with tomorrow

I sure can’t keep up with ‘all the damn time’ but will give it a shot once or twice, including today.

Let me know what time you guys are thinking....today. Tomorrow looks equally as good. I would rather have some company.

Barring unforeseen work stuff, I intend to arrive at VP between 1:30-2. On a call till 2 but might get there earlier to set up while listening.

If I can make tomorrow, it will be later - earliest 3.

UGH, I have hit a brick wall and don't think I can deal with the driving today. Traveled all day yesterday coming back from NJ. I am going to take it easy today and try and go tomorrow and then Thursday-Saturday Have fun today

Neil missed a good one. 10-20+. Hamdi and I rigged 4.7s. I think Gene and Chris P had mid 5s? Rhett went low with a 4.2 but was fine until the wind faded a bit late. Dave Delozier kited a 14. Robert took some pics.

Missed the rest of you guys - it was a nice day. Gene made it through a jibe but he says it doesn't count because he touched down. I play by "local" rules - as long as you don't have to start from a dead stop on the other side of the jibe, it counts. Lol

Morning
Glad you guys scored. It takes some force to keep me away but I just couldn’t handle almost 2 hours on the road yesterday. BUT, I am ready to go today. Doesn’t look quite as strong as yesterday but I think there should be plenty to have fun. Probably arrive around 11:45am.

It's going to blow all afternoon. No rush. Smile Probably after lunch for me - trying to be a useful human and get some stuff done despite the windy week.
