Unhappy 4 day weekend and it's supposed to rain all weekend!

Well we have a 4 day weekend starting tomorrow thrrough Monday and the forecast is for rain rain and more rain... possible clearing up Sunday evening into Monday... but more storms are headed our way so who knows what will happen.

Bummer, I was sure hoping to get a lot of flying in but looks like we'll have to wait at least til late in the weekend anyhow, maybe.

Bill,

That planes a beauty! Very nice, is that a kit or ARF, and who makes it?

I haven't even seen the forecast here in CT but I was planning to maiden my Mountain Model's EVA this weekend. Hope we have some good mornings.

Thanks

It has rained (petty much) all summer here in Cornwall, and when it's not raining the wind is gusting.
I don't remember such a grim summer...

Forge,

This plane was built from Dumas plans. It is a Pat Tritle design. The genteleman I bought it from at our club builds, but is unfortunately unable to fly for health reasons. So he builds and sells to club members. He also built this one and another frind of mine has it.

Bill,

The guy look like he has some awesome skills. It's tough to get a true measure from a photo, but the covering job on the Waco looks really beautiful.

Good luck if you get out to fly it this weekend, and have a great Holiday!

We have been having torrential down pours and some pretty spectacular lighting here all morning. It's supposed to move out this afternoon and be sunny through next Wednesday. Whoo Hoo, I have the next 9 days off.

Thanks Scott, yeah it sure is sharp huh? The catch is he builds what he wants to build and then gets them into the hands of folks who want to fly them.

Would be cool if took orders though for sure!
