Was at the field by 0630 hours. Calm conditions as predicted. By 0700 the wind had picked up with strong gusts. Aborted after test flying the wing. The air was very disturbed and continued to build over the afternoon. Gusts exceeding 40 mph at 1400 hours. The CSYC Spring series will either be a gas or a blowout.
Three quick flights. Weed in wing issues, followed by high winds.
When I got to Simms there was a cop sitting on the west side of the round a bout. I waited him out for 10 minutes and finally parked the truck by the roadblocks and No Trespassing sign. I figured it was time to see if they were going to enforce the restrictions to recreational users. He watch me unload the Falcon and when I was about to wheel it into the field he graciously drove off.
So… ‘m thinking that they are more interested in people dumping in the field than anything else. Good for us!
The air was light and I launched without trouble even though the trimmers were out and the breeze turned at the last second so that I was launching downwind ( 1 knot downwind… no big deal).
