Today was warm, 50 degrees, calm and sunny at two PM. I had a fine time flying my Radian and Blaster. But I made some tracks in the turf inadvertently. Did my best to repair them. The field is so soft in places after the thaw that even with a light car you make tracks. I will be parking in the lot from now on. [Name withheld]

Fellow pilots – please take this to heart and park in the lot until the ground can tolerate car traffic.

On a different note, check out Charlie’s build thread on the SKSS Forum. A teaser picture below. NICE!!!

Walt shared the following report:

I finally got the opportunity to fly the Topaz last Sunday. What a great airplane! It launches straight, turns tight, climbs in the lightest thermal, and looks majestic in the air. On its second launch, I flew it for 18 minutes and then landed on the tape for 94 landing points.

Now that I have an airplane to fly, I guess I should register for the SKSS ESL contest next June. Heck, I might even be able to take the Novice trophy with this airplane.
