It was good to see SIG Brothers acdii
, and c-crunch
at the SIG Fly-In this past weekend. Friday's weather was perfect with sun, temp in the 80's and very low wind - OK, well a little less humidity would have made it even better.
Saturday featured a 6 hour rain delay from about 1:00pm to 7:00pm. Things got pretty soggy! Many fliers left the field, but those that stayed enjoyed LOTS of great hangar flying stories. We went forward with the free "hamburger burn" for the entrants and their families a little earlier than normal, with everyone crowded into Hazel's main hangar. Hazel came up from her house in the rain, pulling her "Spacewalker" colored golf cart right inside the hangar. With the constant chatter and the rain hitting the metal roof, it was a busy noisy place. Only quiet time was when the Belmont Stakes horse race started on the TV.
After the rain stopped a handful of dedicated fliers enjoyed some of the best calm conditions of the whole weekend. It turned into one of those ideal flying sessions where you can't help but enjoy one pretty touch-and-go after another.
Thanks again to all who attended. We hope to see you at SIG FIELD next year.

Darn rain sure put a damper on all the flying, but hey with only 3 flights in, I still managed 3rd place in the Poker contest and one some CA glues. Hazel was there too during the picnic. My wife and I had a great time despite the rain. I also picked up 2 gallons of 15% fuel, some dope and a Catabria kit that I have been wanting for a while now.
