Thanks skypilot155 for the video, I enjoyed that, very well done, looked like a great get together and all decent landings. Boy do those rigids have a glide on them.

2 points:
1) Nice landings, some weren't pretty, but the LZ wasn't an impact zone. My one question is if the guy flying the Rigid at 2:56 whacked.... the video cuts before we see the landing, but it didn't look like it was going to be a "textbook" landing

2) I've been thinking about going out to Coloma for the last ~4 years, as it is the closest flying site to Davis, California. It would beat driving to mount Diablo, or back to the Folks and Ed Levin/Mission. Now that my position/Work in Sacramento is gone, I have nothing better to do.
If you guys want another driver, you might want to PM me, I'd like to check out the site.

The guys signing in the background are Coloma pilots (food, beer, guitars= country music crazy ), Yes Kevin (the guy on the ridgid) wacked ROFL which is pretty uncommon for Kevin. He almost always has beautiful textbook landings thumbsup
