I'd like to come, but I have'n't had time to fix my recovery system and I've got SAC's and tests this week. I'll have time to fix things next week though.

Gday Brian,

The weekend after the 9th, is the HPR launch Sepinetine.
If were blown off on the 9th, we'll try for the 23rd. (2nd & 4th satudays of the month)
Sorry mate, but a couple of the guys only get there kids on alternate weekends
and I told them long ago, that's the way we'd do it.
I suppose you could pray for rain :cry: or not
Hope to see ya at the next one??

As a very newbie I'll be trying to get along for a look. Hope the weather is suitable.

Cheers, Joe

Na. Didn't bother going. I looked out the window at 8am and the flag in the back yard was getting blown around. I'm only round the corner from the paddocks, so if theres wind here, theres wind there. I couldn't even fly the planes on sunday, because of the wind. And look at it today, not a bresse in sight. Just like friday. DOHHHH!!!!

Like I said, that's what next weekends are for?

I'll be home by then Stu, but I will probably still be jet lagged and I will have a lot to do to get ready for the next launch at Serpentine. If I make it, I make it, otherwise I hope to see you at Serpentine.

Gday brian & all

I don't see why not. But the weather dosen't look promising. I'm waiting for tomorrow's 7:30pm weather report before I make any calls. I recon it could end up being postponed. I'm not sure when too, though.

Next weekend is the serpinetine launch (which, by the way lamp, I can't make, as I'm entered in to a fixed wing comp.) So maybe wait untill next month??? not sure yet :?

No worries Stu. I made it home yesterday but despite not sleeping yesterday during the day I cannot sleep all night and I'm wide awake...jet lag is a bitch!

Pity you cannot make Serpentine next weekend, if the weather is good it should be a great launch.....See you when I see you, and good luck in the competition!
