Didn't plan a time yet, depends on the weather - need to hand launch my planes so I hope it will not be too cold.

Just checked the weather for Stoufville. -7 with a 20k wind (-13 windchill), if you thought last weekend was cold, tomorrow will be much colder.

Better bundle up.
Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory.

Better bundle up.

Looks like this is the only option -9.3 with gray sky is not the best :(

Watch out for groundhogs if you fly today! If we can figure out where ROGO Roger lives, maybe we could do a TEMAC  version of Wiarton Willie!

Hi Guys:

It was fantastic at TEMAC on Saturday afternoon!  Brisk for sure (-6C, wind chill -12C), but the winds were quite manageable, 13-15 kmh from the SW.  I was there from 2-4 pm.  Snowpants were great for pre-warming my flight batteries per Ed's recommendations!!

Yikes! Andy if you had your batteries in your snowpants, I hope you didn't get your wires crossed! :o

Oh yes, I was really careful to keep my wires uncrossed.  I learned that from Simon's sagely commentary about FireWire at the January workshop! :)

I did a couple of flights with the glider and Jeff flew his pylon racer and rifle - started nice but when then the wind picked up a bit and together with the clouds it was freezing....

Just in from the field. Good times. Cold but tolerable if you dressed for it.
