Fall 2017 Clean Up
« on: October 12, 2017, 03:41:37 pm »
Hello everyone,

Somewhat different from Simon's explanation last evening, I do call it the "Fall Clean Up".  I think it was called "Field Closing" at some point.  But as we all know, there are folks like Andy who just can't stay away from the field despite the month on the calendar.

Anyway, I am currently looking at Saturday 04/Nov to do a little tidying up.  No idea of what the weather will be like so I shall update as we get closer.

It was great seeing so many at the Col's last night and thank you Simon for a very interesting presentation.  My takeaway is to forget all those calculations and just ask Simon what to do.

Cheers,
Graham

Graham,

Will put it in my book.  We'll meet at Tim's beforehand

re your comment: "My takeaway is to forget all those calculations and just ask Simon what to do."
Simon is an engineer.  All you are going to get from him is a bunch of numbers! ;D

Fun meeting.

Trump is 45*, not 42 8)
Oops, sorry.  You were referring to his IQ.  ;D

*45th pres


ps: just for the fun of it I asked for a dictionary definition of "Moron" to see if Pence was correct:

"a stupid person.
synonyms:   fool, idiot, ass, blockhead, dunce, dolt, ignoramus, imbecile, cretin, dullard, simpleton, clod; informalnitwit, halfwit, dope, ninny, nincompoop, chump, dimwit, dingbat, dipstick, goober, coot, goon, dumbo, dummy, ditz, dumdum, fathead, numbskull, numbnuts, dunderhead, thickhead, airhead, butthead, flake, lamer, lamebrain, zombie, nerd, peabrain, birdbrain, scissorbill, jughead, mouth-breather, jerk, donkey, twit, goat, dork, twerp, hoser, schmuck, bozo, boob, turkey, schlep, chowderhead, dumbhead, goofball, goof, goofus, galoot, lummox, knuckle-dragger, klutz, putz, schlemiel, sap, meatball, dumb cluck, took"

It seems like I have been called all those names at some point at the field.  They're taking it out on me! ;D

* for those who did not hear about my crash at the Orangeville Pylon races where I drilled my Pogo straight into the ground at close to 100 kmh.  Pylon sawdust!... but almost deep enough to strike oil. :D  Missed the core of the earth "by that much".

Micheal, I call myself all those things as I see my plane going down... Believe it or not, time slows down for me in these circumstances so that I can get it all in... This is therapeutic.

Then after the crash I can calmly walk to the car, get my recovery bag before taking the long walk of 'shame' to recover what's left.

On the brighter side, as I walk out to the alternative landing site, I always feel better thinking that I may be able to rebuild the downed aircraft.  If not, I can usually end up with pieces I can use in a warwing or other plane.

While tramping blindly through corn, you have a lot of time to think.
