[lektrik_flyers] Re: flying Saturday

Well, if weather holds, lets plan for a next saturday
fly if that's ok with everybody.  We can get a better
idea of the time as the weekend approaches.  I am open
to flying anytime Saturday, so early is ok, or right
after noon  or same o' time of around 3:00pm or so. 
Lot of that will depend on wind conditions, but this
time of year they aren't very stable anyway, so we
will just have to decide and hope we get lucky! ;-)

Man, I better get my glue bottles busy!
