After a long summer of waiting for the crops to be harvested, the HOTROC Fall/Winter season blasted off on Saturday, October 27th. Well, okay, the season actually started the weekend before, but since the winds were over 30 that whole weekend, I don't think anything flew. The 27th was a much nicer day; clear skies, warm temperatures, and winds 10 -15, gusting to 25 and ocassionally falling off to around 5 or less. So we took to the skies to celebrate the new season, and after sunset we continued flying and then checked out the new, bright comet through a large telescope. I didn't cover too many flights (I was prepping and grumping about the wind), but I got some great ones!
