TEMAC Warbirds Day July 21, 2019
« on: July 18, 2019, 08:34:31 pm »
TEMAC 2019 Warbirds Day
Sunday, July 21, 2019

Our “Warbirds” day funfly takes place this Sunday, July 21, 2019, from 1pm to 3pm. Enjoy flying your military/army/navy/air force type model airplanes at an informal but fun get-together with all your TEMAC friends. While we have no specific plans; in the past we have seen formation flying, warwings competitions, and more. Of course, we’re planning a barbecue with cold drinks ($5 charge to help cover costs). The flying is free to all members with flying privileges (‘wings’).

Unfortunately, the weather forecast looks rainy right now, but forecasts are often wrong. Make sure to check the TEMAC website, in case we have to cancel the event.

Currently, the forecast for Sunday afternoon is sun and clouds, 16km nw wind, gusting to 27km.

There's a risk of a thunderstorm in the morning, but no rain forecast for the afternoon.

Also, not as hot as Friday and Saturday.

As of now, the funfly is still on!

@Richard_RC_Guy - It's just a grin. 

How you read it is up to you?

What an excellent Warbirds Day.  The gusts were testing the skills of the Warbird pilots and everything flew beautifully.  Lunch was delish.

Yup! It was fun. The day started slowly, but the parking lot was full by 1pm.

The barbecue was great, and lots of 'warbirds' were flown, from WW1 biplanes to modern jets. We did have a warwing-combat friendly competition, and that was fun too.

Despite some strong winds, pilots were cheered for good flights and good landings.

There were several friend-and-member spectators as well. Thanks to everyone who helped set up, and who helped clean up. The event went smoothly without any problems.

Looked like a great day.  Sorry I missed it.  Great to see the Great Hoffer back at the field taking Scorch Danen's job of carbonating (carbon dating?) hot dogs.

re: Michael's "Despite some strong winds"

Sorry for the winds.  I was being selfish.  Did 4 sailboat races on Lake Ontario at J105Fest (34 foot long boats, 6 crew).  Racing sailboats without winds sucks.  We had 12-15 knot winds.  I will not be racing again this year so the winds will be toned down for the rest of the flying season.  I promise.

ps: sailed with the same Orthopaedic surgeon who was slated to do Jack Higgins' knees in October.  Unfortunately they discovered the aneurysm in the work-up and died a month before the slated knee operation.

This is for Frank who heard the call of the sea.
I found it on the web.
——

The Wind Blew

THE wind blew shrill and smart,
And the wind awoke my heart
Again to go a-sailing o'er the sea,
To hear the cordage moan
And the straining timbers groan,
And to see the flying pennon lie a-lee.

O sailor of the fleet,
It is time to stir the feet!
It's time to man the dingy and to row!
It's lay your hand in mine
And it's empty down the wine,
And it's drain a health to death before we go!

To death, my lads, we sail;
And it's death that blows the gale
And death that holds the tiller as we ride.
For he's the king of all
In the tempest and the squall,
And the ruler of the Ocean wild and wide!

Richard,  Deep.... very deep!

The Temac Poet Laureate would have written something like:


I went to the lake to sail a race
Instead of flying at the preferred Rogo Place
At least it wasn't windstill with fog
I should have stayed for a Hoffer Dog. ;)


Another talent I do not possess.  Mr. Hoffer can surely come up with something superior.  I feel BJ rumblings.   ;D
