USA World F2B Team Trials 2019-Tulsa
« on: August 28, 2019, 02:20:56 PM »
I hit town just after noon today and once settled at the hotel, got out to Gluedobbers (Reeves) field.  Here before us are Orestes and Jose.  Elwin Aud is getting his camera tuned for a hard week ahead.  Russel Honea greeted me as I drove up. 
Jose is doing some electric repairs,  Orestes and I each got a couple flights up.  It is VERY warm in that sun and hardly any wind right now - light and variably deadly......  cooling our heals under the ceiling fan mounted under the outdoor awning.....nap style...

New shows for the day were Frank McMillin and wife and Joe Daly and son.  Looks like we may have a shootout in the Junior division coming!  The field action was mostly Orestes and myself going for the practice flight derby.  I think we came out about even.  Pretty much non-stop for six hours.  It kicked both our behinds.  Joe Gilbert flew the lawn mower on a couple of the circles.

Early morning report.  New arrivals are Howard and wife,  Wes Eakin and Eric Taylor.  This morning we have a pretty stiff southerly breeze.  The last report I saw (yesterday) said 9 mph with gusts today and tomorrow.  Bob Reeves says maybe a short very early morning rain Friday.  The weekend is supposed to be more like yesterday-5 mph to calm.  Everyone took one or two flights in the wind but are now sitting it out.  May need to wait till evening for a break in the wind.  The flag here is straight out.  As people arrive today there should be plenty of open circle time for obligatory first flights.
Iíll get a few photos soon.

I wish I didnít have to crop these photos down so much to upload but in this shot I wanted to show the Tulsa treatment as to how they mow the circles.  There are three.  I copied this for my own circle at home.  Across the way is the church where the pilots meeting and weigh in will be.

Doc the answer is yes but practice is sort of a relative question in this wind.  When you are holding on to both cheeks you run out of hands to fly.  I wouldnít say that to a stranger, Doc!  Elwyn is fussing with his camera- canít get happy with it but Iím sure heíll have it well tuned by the weekend.  As it stands we have nine Sr entries and two Jr.  I think one more is considering getting in but not totally decided yet.  Rich Oliver is on the way and unfortunately Chris Rud wonít make it this time.

Starting to get light outside, rain should be out of here by noon. Another chance in the morning but thinking it will only result in a late start. Looks like our T-post markers held up to the 42mph wind gust we had overnight. Can't say the same for Howard's wind sock :)

As long as Howard didnít leave his toolbox and his handle at the field overnight, he should be okay.

In case anyone that is here sees this. If you drive over to the church do not drive over the grass area between the two driveways. With the rain we have had it will be soft. Worst case you will get stuck best case you will make ruts that I will have to deal with.

Thanks

A bit wet early in the A M so practice didn't get very active till closer to noon. Unusually cool here for August. In the 60's early on with the high around 80. Here are a few Friday Pics.

About to head for the field.  The forecast seems to agree with what we saw back on Wednesday's projection,  Sunny, low 80's and a light and variable wind maybe 5 mph.  It will come from what is to me an unusual direction at this site-from the north northeast.  Maybe not enough to matter but that puts it over and through a group of trees and the buildings on the north side of the main circle.  Could be interesting.  In a practice flight there last night I got a great full-bottom view of my airplane going straight down on an outside square.  Typically the breezes here come from the south and mostly unobstructed. A bonus to this though is you aren't flying maneuvers into a backdrop of buildings, trees, tents and vehicles which can be rattling when you are used to flying in open spaces.
Good Luck to us all!!

Round one (of four) is done and the judges are taking five.  Few scores posted yet but I will show them from time to time.  It pretty cool out this morning and grass is very wet.  Rubber socks would have been great.  We have a gentle north wind with few surprises.  I felt a little funny stuff in the upper loop of the vertical eight and in the overheads with the breeze coming over the buildings but not too bad.  Richard Oliver is firing up to start round 2.  Joe Gilbert is heading into the other circle.

  Hey Dave, if they have any bread, hot dog or hamburger bun bags, slip those on your feet then put your socks and shoes over those. We did that as kids before going out in the snow, works well for wet grass also.
  Have fun and be safe,
