Its about time and open before Eloy. The fans look pretty fast. No need for a baggy jumpsuit as you can tell and its right next to the landing/packing/boarding area. Very convenient.

Yeah, as you can tell many participants are noobs and working on style and body position. This particular noob is working on his frog flying. Sly

Last Monday during the day I used the outdoor tunnel prior to the indoor one at Perris later that evening. Tongue

Excellent shot. I like the horizontal wind tunnel set up at the mock up next to the bar to help students get ready for the wind blast at the door. I think it is a valuable tool.

What ever happened to those guys that got blown through the bar onto the grass? Laugh

They ended up in the pool, simulating a water landing in the lake. Another valuable tool. We have it all.

I spent quite some time reading the Elsinore community forums. The 'Waldo' thing is hilarious, I am thinking of clever ways of introducing this at my home DZ! WinkLaughLaugh

Wow, they will be so proud. <tear>

Honestly, the Elsinore forums are a freaking RIOT! If you know the group, it makes the forums even more hilarious to read. I think there is something really absurd about several people from serious 4-way teams (and even a DZO/former Airspeed) rushing to be in the backgrounds of random pictures taken on the DZ, especially when they are usually in full gear and on the way to the plane.

I have no idea how they do it, but I love seeing those damned Waldos show up in the DZ pics every week!

Laugh

For all of those who where there this weekend - I think we can all vouch for the fact that Elsinore "had" a wind tunnel. How 'bout that weather -

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to Lake Wales. Felt like Ms. Nature got her Coasts confused. Whoever poured her that last martini on Friday night has some questions to answer.

yeah, but the "so-called" jinx only applies when GT and its traveling team members blow a bunch of air fare only to show up and be weathered out.

Just me doesn't count.
