WOW, I have not been here in almost 2 years. Trying to get back into the wonderful feeling of triking. 2017 will be the year to buy a new trike. Even if I have to go Part 103 and used. I got the bug at SNF and reignited when I stopped in and saw Henry

Even if I have to go Part 103 and used. I got the bug at SNF and reignited when I stopped in and saw Henry at Santa Paula and met a few people and introduced trikes to my girlfriend. Man I have missed this sight... Mark

    TRIKEFEST 2009 . . . Okay, I imagine today wraps up the last day at Trikefest @ Cushing. My vacation has been planned these 2 weeks for Trikefest and Oshkosh and had a last minute problem and could not attend.

    SO, hopefully someone that attended Trikefest will post pictures or videos on here so I can see what I missed. I hope all that went had a great time. Want to know about osme of the results of the contest if possible.

    Thanks, Mark

    Mark, the pictures start just south of the San Bernard river and then toward the southern end of the east side of Matagorda East Bay. The south wind that morning provided for a very smooth surfaces on the bay and nice for beach flying

    Thanks Steve for the info. My son and I are planning on going to TrikeFest in Ill. and then on to Oshkosh, but we may have run into a bug and now may not be able to go, so looking for a back up plan. Thanks again for the info.

    Mark, as far as I know, as of a few days ago ... it is still on, being as it is also a hang glider event. I think there should be at least three or so there that I am aware of(?), although I unfortunately will not be one of them after all. It is also my understanding that they are naming the event after Roger and may even be starting a fund in his daughters name.

    Anyone know if the Texas Trike fest is still happening? Are there any possible attendees other than the 2 that have posted? I dont know if Rogers passing has made a difference! If so, is it still in Leakey? Any response would be appreciated!

    Well I am back from Washington and got in 7 hours and 40 minutes of training with Scott Johnson...was 7.5, but on Sunday morning, went out and it was just way way too windy for me to even concentrate on learning anything new. Very bumpy ride. So, I have now logged 16.5 hours front seat. I will be the first to admit, took me a while to get the landings down, but I think I finally got the rhythm down. (sorry Scott for few the hard ones...guess that's why its training)
    Felt good to get up in the air again, last time was a short ride over Tampa Bay A.S. with Larry.

    Getting there, and man it was good to be up despite the bad news regarding John Kieth while being in WA.

    I am officially one step closer. Yea!!!

    Hey Mark,

    There are two more new CFI WSC guys here in central Texas for your friend to choose form. The newest one is Jeff Hunt who just got his ticket last week. He flies out of Granite Shoals airport and there is also Steve Burns (Burnzie) who trains out of Hearne airport. Both these guys started out in hang gliding decades ago and have beaucoup hours flying trikes. There are 21 million people who live in Texas so there should be enough wanna be trikers out there to keep these guys busy.

    Jeff Hunt 512-656-5052

    Steve Burns (Burnzie) 512-736-2052

Do we have any what ever they are called...CFI, SPI, CFIS...??? Please respond as I need to know where to tell him to go. Who and where in Texas for WSC please. Thanks.
