    Weather's looking really good for this weekend, cold front goes through tomorrow and the big high behind it stays until Sunday.

    High 60 both days and very light breeze from the west (protected direction).

    FAST member Mark Stein cannot make it this weekend so we won't have the portable driver's stand but we will have a 6' high section of scaffold instead. You will have to climb up unless someone brings a ladder.

    See ya on the weekend!

    We're usually there at 7am to set up, we run "officially" at 8 but if you're there ready to go we're often ready before that.

    P Sport is 22.670 in case you didn't know...

    Tyler ripped off a couple 10.67 laps Wed at our puddle. Subject to human error though. The laser don't lie so we'll see. I know Mike got a ton faster this summer too.

    Sweet!

    We worked our butts off today pulling some weeds that grew in the launch area when the water was down but got it cleared out enough to run. A huge thank you to Doug Murany for all his hard work also.

    Looking like a good weekend, see ya'll in the am!

    Chatting with a few of our "senior" members (Jerry Betke, Doug Murany, John Beardslee) we discovered this was the 50th year of running model boats at Thread Lake, incredible amount of history at this site!

    Here's some video and photos from the weekend, look for an article in the upcoming December "Roostertail".
