Sunday, 4/28

Sorry, but the repairs slated for Saturday didn’t happen due to the ferocious winds. We’ll be trying again Sunday morning. If successful, we may be able to do some flying in the afternoon. Wish we could be more certain, but hopefully next weekend will be better!

Start of 2019 Soaring Season!

Meeting for club officers and anyone else who wants to attend Saturday, April 20 at 10am.

For those who cannot attend, please read through documents which have been and will be sent out, send topics, issues, votes and opinions via email, and

Since rain will likely make all of the 4/20-4/21 weekend un-flyable, we will target 4/27 as a shake-out problems day, finalize checks on gliders, and get tow pilots and instructors some recurrency flights. 4/28 would be the earliest date for ‘opening’ day. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather.
