I'm interested.  What time are you planning are going out and are you bringing a warwing?  I could go out any time.

Late morning, early or mid afternoon, I'm flexible.

Yes, to Warwing.

How about from 11 on.  I'll be out around 11.  See you then.

11 is good; I'll charge later tonight and early in the morning.

Is the corn gone?

Right now it's wet and foggy outside.

My batteries are charging, and I still intend to go fly, assuming it clears and dries up. I'll post again at about 10 am.

I'm all set to go.  If the fog is still hanging on, we can set the time back for later.  At least the winds are calm...

I'll go up around 11. I hope the weather is good enough for at least a few fun flights.

We got there at 11, and flew for 2 hours. It was cool and damp at first, but wind was almost zero.
The weather slowly improved, with the sun finally shining and the sky blue.

Bruce had 9 flights; I had 8. We each flew our own sport planes, and we practiced our Warwing flying too (I cut his ribbon!).
Bruce practiced aerobatics and I did a lot of low flying, now that the corn was gone.

Loy showed up as we were leaving.

I got there about 2 or so. There were about 6 of us by then and we all flew. By about 3;30 it had clouded over and there was a moderate cool wind, but right down the runway so no problem. I was starting to struggle with orientation so I called it a day. Still, nice to be able to fly in December and nicer to not have to worry about the corn!
What could possibly go wrong?
