Arriving at Lakeview Lakeview, 7/5/2014.
The 2015 Umpteenth annual is now history. 36 pilots were registered this year. The weather was really hot with some thunderstorm activity. Many pilots were there for the week before the festival and some folks bagged some long flights.
Conditions at Sugar were not the normal, "wait for the lull cycles", but light and often cross from the west, many pilots sunk out .
Some pilots headed to Tagues on Friday, I understand some got to fly.
Black Cap was popular Saturday and I heard of many pilots heading north towards Abert and Paisley dodging thunderstorms.
