    Labor Day Weekend Spotting?

    With Labor day weekend WX looking pretty good so far who's going out? I'd like to get out one of the days this weekend but no sure which as of yet. So far its looking like Monday might be the only day I can get out, if so I'll prob hit LGA since I haven't been there since the winter/spring.

    I think I'll be at FRG first in the morning then take a spin over to JFK. I honestly hope they are not on the 22s this weekend. The weeds at the mounds are horribly overgrown.

    Might be able to pull off some early mornings at LGA, otherwise I am at the US OPEN the entire weekend.

    I will be out all day Saturday and Sunday. :) viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7961

    Unless LGA is on 04 in the morning, I'll stick to JFK since I'd like to avoid the US Open traffic and parking nightmare over by the marina.

    It's hard for me to say this far in advance what I'm going to be up to next weekend, but if the weather forecast continues to be as optimistic as it is right now, I'll definitely plan for at least half a day of spotting...

    Re: Labor Day Weekend Spotting?

    My calendar looks clear for that weekend, and I definitely want to head out to FRG one day to catch some of the warbirds. If anyone else is heading out that way for some spotting, let me know. I might hit JFK either that day or another, depending on how things go.

    I'll be at FRG, and maybe JFK.

    Re: Labor Day Weekend Spotting?

    I have FRG penciled in for one day and I'm open to JFK for another. I second Josh's comments, I'm staying away from LGA because of the US Open traffic...although, I bet Sheltair at LGA might have some intersting visitors between now and the end of the tourney. Ron? Hiss? Matt? Can you shed some light?

    I'm penciling in JFK for a few hours as well on Saturday.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Didn't quite think it was an option this weekend however it now looks like there is a possibility I'll be out Saturday or Sunday. Can't do Monday since I have to pencil in some back to school shopping and on Tuesday I leave for Montreal for 4 days.

    Well that's why we stand by the soccer pitch and get hit in the head with rogue balls! :)

    Re: Labor Day Weekend Spotting?

    I might head out to the mounds or Cargo Plaza on Sunday as winds are SSW.

    I may need to throw the weed-whacker in the car before I head out

    Looks like I'll be out Sat with Mr. Derner and Mr. Molnar. I'm either going to stop at FRG in the morning or LGA if they are on the 4s and the sun is out.

    Anyone planning on going out Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday? I have Mon, Tues, and Weds off. Loads into JFK and/or ISP look favorable.
