FRIDAYFirst flight was one and a half hours mildly bumpy. I repeated yesterday's flight and climbed to 9800 ft MSL to take in the whole scene. There was a lot of activity at the field. I could see Russ Bateman and his son ripping it up and groups of two and three launching and heading off to the East. It was shaping up to be a typical MV morning, light winds from the south east building as the sun rose.

Pilots were arriving in mass by the time I landed. Chad Bastian and Leanne were on the field and there was a Delta WST being assembled. By the time we left for lunch I had counted 40 pilots.
After lunch at the restaurant with Mike and Jennifer I went back to the house to take a nap.
The afternoon flight was Epic. I circumnavigated Eagle Mesa and got some great video of a couple of guys playing in the rocks. The air was smooth and winds were light. It's a great day to be alive.
Dinner was Spagetti a la Dawn and Jennifer. Later we went up to the campground and hung at the campfire.
