Still expect to be there, WX permitting. Tailwinds for us on the way in (from KSZP) if the forecast is right. Just hoping it's not too cloudy.

Planning to be there in the RV-7A/7 prototype, WX permitting of course, and hopefully bring some stickers and other stuff. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Can you get your money back? Lol, not looking good second year in a row. I think I'm batting about 2 for 5 on your last 5 events. Happy Birthday none the less!

Weather is looking dicey up this way too. Will check again in the AM, fingers crossed.

Little too socked in with clouds our way, not to mention winds.

Going to pass, unless some sort of weather miracle happens in the AM, That'd be a bumpy rough ride in a RV-12, most likely, with that weather front blowing through, the isobars are stacked pretty close together.

I’m afraid I’m out - the winds up here are already gusting to the high 20’s this morning, mostly crosswind at our runway (which is unusual) - and forecast to get worse. Definitely way outside the jet’s envelope, and wouldn’t be very comfortable in an RV either....

Would anyone come out if we have this tomorrow at the same time in addition to today?
