Our hosts at Godlewsky Farms are in full swing with their sales of holiday items.   From fresh cut trees, to wreaths, kissing balls, garland, and more, please be sure to drop by the greenhouses while you are out at the launch.    Your patronage is a perfect way to say “Thank you!” to our fine hosts for providing us such a great place to fly!

Go for Saturday November 12th Launch!

Friday’s winds will be diminishing overnight, making way for a mostly sunny but cool Saturday.   We are GO for our Saturday launch and contest.   The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm.

Important:  There is likely to be frost on the grass overnight.   The landowner does not want us to drive out on it until the sun has had a chance to melt it.    So please as you arrive, wait for an indication that its clear to pull out on the field before you do.   This way we won’t damage their sod.  Thanks for your cooperation!

GO for Saturday October 8th Launch and Contest!

We are GO for our Saturday October 8th launch and Fall Open Contest! The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm.   All fliers and spectators welcome!

A clarification on the Fall Open contest events.   Our last post had originally omitted one of the events.   We will also be flying C boost glider at this contest.   See our last post for the comprehensive list of contest events.

There is an increasing chance of a passing shower as we get into the afternoon.   So if you can, flying earlier in the day than later would be prudent.  :)
