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.

LAST soaring weekend of 2018…

The fall weather has been pretty dismal for soaring overall, but we’ll try to get one last shot in and then disassemble this weekend.

Saturday is a no-go for weather reasons, but if we get a dry period for part of the day will try to disassemble Ruby so that there’s less to do on Sunday.

Sunday – if the forecast remains good, we will plan to operate (2-33, plus Eric and Michael if they want tows) from 10:30-2:30(ish), but please let Sue know who’s coming for timing/planning purposes.

No later than 3pm (don’t forget the time change so it will be more like 4pm in sunlight and temperature) we will try to have the 2-33 repositioned to the northeast side of the airport and start disassembly/storage.
