Many thanks go to Jim Sheffield for hosting a pattern warm-up to kick the 2008 season. There is hope this will become a future annual event. There were 18 pilots in attendance from TX and LA. This year's warm-up included a 2008 FAI judge certification course conducted by Don Ramsey in addtion to open flying from the private 600x75 ft Sheffield Olive Ranch runway. There are plans to add a second runway to accommodate crosswind conditions.
