The forecast for this month's Second Sunday (October 11th, 2015) predicts somewhat light conditions with a west wind at 7 mph from 11am through 4pm. This prediction is often conservative, so it might be a little better. Please check the following link for the hour by hour prediction:

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!!!

Friday Morning's Newsletter to the Torrey Hawks:

Hello Fellow Torrey Hawks!!

I'm writing to share three news items this month:

       1. New Board position of Safety Officer for Torrey Hawks
       2. Bill Moyes may be visiting Sylmar this coming Sunday
       3. The Torrey Hawks Second Sunday will also be this Sunday

1. At last month's annual Torrey Hawks meeting, we passed a change to our bylaws which adds a 4th Board member to our Torrey Hawks Board. The new Board position is "Safety Officer" and will be appointed by our President Brian McMahon for this first year. It will be a regular elected position thereafter. If you would like to serve the club please contact myself or Brian to let us know you're interested. Thanks in advance!!

2. From the Sylmar forum:

       "Just a quick note to let you know that Bill and Molly Moyes will be out
       at the Sylmar LZ on Sunday October 11th. We plan to arrive out there
       around 2pm and will have food and drinks on site from 4pm onwards.
       Hope to see you there!"

There's also been a similar announcement posted to the US Hawks forum at:

         http://ushawks.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2119

3. Given that Bill Moyes will be at Sylmar this Sunday, I don't expect a strong turnout for our Second Sunday. However, I will be there for anyone who shows up, and I've created the normal topic with the forecast at:

         http://ushawks.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2121

It doesn't look great, ... and I'd go to Sylmar if I were you. : )

Best wishes, and thanks again for your membership in the Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club!!!

Sincerely,
Bob Kuczewski

I work very near Torrey Pines, so I spent some time at the office before walking over to the Gliderport for our Second Sunday.

It turns out that President Obama's golfing at Torrey Pines Golf Course shut down flying for the day.

The gate to the parking area was closed and there were lots of police in the area:

The parking lot was virtually empty ...

... except that the Air California Adventure "compound" was filled with its usual assortment of living quarters:

The Air California Adventure "mascot" (a pig) was still there - hidden from view ... as usual:

I talked to a few people and documented my visit with a few "selfies":

Other than that, it was an uneventful Second Sunday.    :)
