    Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 5:00 PM
    The Williams Wave – Fly It!
    Planning, forecasting, flying the many Williams wave types
    Williams wave can be mild to WOW! We’ll detail the weather, pilot preparation, and review flights from the Sutter Buttes, Goat/Snow, and the west wind wave. Come join us for an awesome presentation, dinner and social event in the newly renovated South Hangar at Williams Soaring Center.
    Featuring Guest Speaker
    : Kempton Izuno
    Kempton began soaring at age 14, captivated by tales of long cross-country flights. He started taking pictures from the cockpit at age 17 on his Gold badge flight. Sharing flights not only from the piloting, but from the planning and forecasting with the objective of better cross-country training material. He currently is a partner in an ASH-25 at Williams, California, and prefers to fly with other pilots to share cross-country techniques.
    Schedule:
    All Day - Flying, hangar talk - appetizers late afternoon.
    5:00 PM - Traditional Mexican Dinner
    6:00 PM - Presentation by Kempton Izuno

    Time to RSVP!

    I'm on my way back from Yellowstone - it's still below zero F here in Elko!

    We now have central heat in the hangar, and there will either be some flying or time for in depth discussion about MacCready's theory in front of the fire - maybe both!

    I'm looking forward to Kempton's talk, some great food from La Fortuna, and seeing everyone there. Kemp has an interactive talk planned, to include the experiences of those who have flown wave conditions at WSC.

    How many people know that Frank Peale earned his Diamond Badge at WSC in wave conditions???

    See you there!

    It's next weekend. I'll be there too.


    Kempton,
    I came across an album I had on Google - They documented my Williams Wave flight that I had in November 2010, but I never made a web page out of it.

    Here are some photos that tell the story...

    Saturday is still tracking to be a post frontal day. The BLIP shows 2800 ft bases around WSC at 1p, rising to 4,000+ in the hills to the west:

    OK, I'll take a tow about 1PM.........thanks Kemp!
    Also will bring the molds for the ASW-20 instrument panel so Dart can get his little TV in the cockpit.
    Cheers,
    JJ
