Far End of the Field
« on: January 22, 2014, 08:16:26 PM »
Guys,

We have a huge field....is there any desire to mow the area North of the Birdhouse.  This area could be used for DLG, Electrics, etc.  The field actually goes back pretty far.

Thoughts?

John is that on the West side near the Club House end

We could use a little more room
It falls off there down to the tree line

If you stand at the birdhouse and look straight down the runway (Northish), it is that area.  There is probably a whole area that is unmowed that is the size of the mowed area (well almost). 

We could setup (the winch) further down the field and folks could use the area by the birdhouse and the other leg of the field.

Also....if the wind is in the right direction, it really helps for the ESL contest.

OK got you
This is where our own pull behind mower would help not raise our grass cutting fee

I would agree with retaking back that area of the field

I'm sure nobody else will comment since we are the only ones active on here!LOL

I think it's a good idea, at least back to just before the lone tree.

Hey John,

This is a good idea. Looks like we might be able to totally separate the gliders from the powered planes and not have the winch line cross the power plane flight area. I wonder how much the extra mowing would cost?

If you look at the image closely you will see that we had been mowing that far back but when grass cutting got more expensive we decided to shorten that area along with the east end of the "regular" runway.
I am all for it, helping separate the flyer will prevent people from leaving because they dont want to upset anyone,

Let's Git-R-Done!!!

FYI - It is also good to get that area cut...when we fly from that end of the field, lots of guys do the walk of shame into the high grass.  I have pulled quite a few ticks off my legs after a day of flying.

Next steps....

At least with your back to the trees, there's no excuse for putting one in them.
