What a weird evening.  Wind was up, down, sideways, lift, sinkholes.  No rain though.

Some highlites...
- Max connected at least 4 take-offs and 4 landings on his own.  His new plane (Valiant) worked well for him.
- Ethan had several flights and taught Vadim a trick or two.
- Ami had several flights and did some landings with me.
- Mike took one of his first walks of shame in the beans when his Carbon Cub refused to listen to him.  TX problems.
- Paul had transmitter/buddy box problems.  Do not know whether he got a flight in.
- Greg Cadez took up instructing and took up Mandeep for two flights.
- Richard Budney showed up.  He proved to me he was alive.  A Covid shut-in.  Great to see him for the first time in two years.
- Calvin continues to have landing gear problems with his Timber.  Solution... jump into the sky with full throttle and full "up" elevator.

Thanks to ground help Mar, BJ and Richard.
Thanks to instructors Philip, Vadim, Cadez, Carlos.

No camera, no photos.  Arghhh!

Another beautiful and somewhat breezy evening.
Special thanks to Frank who has taken a 2nd job helping repair my mistakes, so they may take to the skies again  ;D
