|Hello pilots!! We are kicking off another exciting year of the SoCal XC League this weekend at Marshall. Sunday, April 2nd we'll be having an XC Task Clinic in the morning (9AM in the LZ) which is designed to bootstrap pilots with information they need to fly XC and tasks, covering everything from instrument setup, xc strategy and safety concerns. Sign-up now for the league and this event here:
In the afternoon, we'll put it into practice by flying a Sprint task which is usually around 20km of fishbowling around Marshall. In the evening we'll download track logs and do a little debrief for pilots that want that. I'll also be flying with pilots in the task to help newer XC pilots.
The cost of the clinic is $50 which includes the task fee and retrieve for the day + a few goodies! If you have been to the task clinic before feel free to sit in for free. This year we'll be going over some new things like FTV and the details of the updated XC scoring format. It's always nice to have an extra set of hands to help everyone out.
If you are just flying the task it's $5/pilot (meet at noon at the LZ). Rides up are extra and will be between $5-15 depending on what vehicles we have available.
