Still haven't heard anything so here is another hang gliding based UFO, this time a fireball coming out of the ocean at an early 1970's Dockweiler Beach hang gliding meet:

still taken from a video taken through the wing of a possible Icarus 2 hang glider:


animated gif:


The fireball part starts at 8:39

You can see the setting sun at 7:24 but it is setting on the horizon, not in the middle of the ocean.

OK, I have to apologize. This is going to take more effort than I anticipated. There are over 4,000 hours of
LAGlide/NMERider videos alone that I have to sit through looking for unidentified moths and aerial anomaly.
I am looking for someone else to continue the disclosure effort, hey how about:

President Obama

Link

No he's no use,

How about her she just broke the glass ceiling maybe she can break the area 51 glass barrier of secrecy.
Hillary Clinton

Link

She'll get the job done.
For me its on the phase 2, PART A:
Reconsituting the SCHGA within USHPA.
any regional director who received votes from California residents is covered by the Brown act and
this new effort. Nearly half of all USHPA members are represented by these 6 regional directors. They should be granted new powers.

Region 3: South CA, HI
Alan Crouse (incumbent)
Ken Andrews
Pete Michelmore
REGION 2 - North CA, NV
Jon James
Josh Cohn
Jugdeep Aggarwal
Steve Rodrigues (EC, Secretary)

PART B:
suing listed regional directors for violation of:

BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE
SECTION 16600-16607
16600. Except as provided in this chapter, every contract by which
anyone is restrained from engaging in a lawful profession, trade, or
business of any kind is to that extent void.

Please, restore BobK's membership and insurance, so I can stop looking for moths in LAGlide's videos and get back to flying. Thanks.

Back on topic, Joe Faust and I attended the SHGA Board meeting yesterday. The meeting went very smoothly, and in the new business section I expressed an interest in flying at Sylmar again. The Board was very gracious in laying out the restrictions on non-USHPA members, and Ken Andrews walked the boundaries with Joe and I.

At the end of the tour I pointed out that USHPA's expulsion was forcing me to appeal directly to landowners (such as the County of Los Angeles), and I asked Ken - who is a USHPA Director - about looking into reversing my expulsion. Ken again reiterated that I would first have to agree to stop bringing complaints about Torrey Pines to the San Diego City Council. I began to respond with the unconstitutionality of that requirement when Ken abruptly ended the conversation and walked away.

USHPA: A monopoly insurance company and a corrupt DMV ... all rolled into one.

Here we go:
I wish I could have seen BobK and JoeF at the
"Beavis and Butthead do SHGA BOD Meeting"


".. forcing me to appeal directly to landowners.."
This brings back memories of when landowners tried to ban hang gliding in Los Angeles County. This cannot be a popular course of action.


"... I would first have to agree to stop bringing complaints about Torrey Pines to the San Diego City Council. .."
This sounds a lot like the Paramount/CBS/Axanar Fan Film Settlement. Maybe its not perfect but if they are serious we can all move forward and everyone is better off.

Link


Long version of Axanar settlement if interested

Link



Still all this is due to Mark Forbes Ego and if he is clean as a whistle, a billionaire with the same surname may not be and the Feds could target him being understood it would stop when the Mark Forbes ego problems stops.
Handle it anyway you want to no one will ask any questions.

It's the only course of action USHPA has given me, and - ironically - it may lead to the removal of USHPA insurance requirements at many government owned sites.

The California Recreational Use laws already protect land owners from liability. Governments will have a difficult time requiring membership in an organization that expels members for testifying in court or petitioning their elected officials. USHPA's actions in my expulsion have robbed them of any standing as the "self-regulation" arm of our sport(s).

The USHPA Board threw away 40 years of member insurance payments when they didn't heed my warnings about the Torrey paragliding mill, and they threw away 40 years of respected self-regulation when they expelled me for testifying in a court case.

USHPA will do its best to "rally the troops" against me, and it will be sad to lose more of my friends. But USHPA did this to themselves and they're only trying to deflect blame by making me the scape goat. Going after scape goats never solves problems, but it does distract the easily distracted.

Well you have the spirit and the letter of the law on your side.
http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/california-recreational-immunity-46735/
"..The Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court's entry of summary judgment in favor of Defendants and held that the text of section 846 is extremely broad and relieves landowners of liability for "any injury" to person caused by "any act" of the recreational user. .."

"...This case is an example of the California court's protection of landowners who encourage recreational use of their lands, and extends California's recreational immunity in an effort to further protect landowners from injuries which occur on adjacent lands and to persons who are not participants or spectators to the recreational activity. .."

https://barrypgoldberg.com/be-careful-out-there-the-recreational-immunity-statute-could-preclude-liability/
"..The recreational use immunity statute expresses the strong legislative policy that private land should be open for recreational use. (Hubbard v. Brown (1990) 50 Cal.3d 189, 192.) “Section 846 was enacted to encourage property owners to allow the general public to engage in recreational activities free of charge on privately owned property. .."


It is Forbes spreading stories true or not that people do bring lawsuits and defending those will cost $50,000 so insurance is necessary.

https://lawschooltuitionbubble.wordpress.com/original-research-updated/lawyers-per-capita-by-state/
According to this link there are 165,952 lawyers in California.

At any rate with the restroom completed as soon as the toilet paper dispenser is installed Cornholio will have TP.

My Exxon and Chevron stock holdings currently prevent ufo disclosure however.
why don't they polish these orbs?

And 20 million year old female pilots on the moon change everything.


Ken if Bob goes 30 days without a San Diego City Council appearance, immediately restore his membership or NASA will suffer the consequences.

What a wonderful Spring Air Fest, even the music was good.

But What did Ken Andrews mean when he said "I was looking for a radical change in style,"

Maybe John Holt & The Paragons can elaborate

Link

Hooligans, hooligans stop for a while
Change your hooligan style
Don't fight your brothers
You must use your head
Give a helping hand instead

Ooh what a great sensation
When love is in your soul
Spread it across the nation
Hooliganism is cold
Let only love fill your soul
Fill up your soul

What a man gain by doing wrong
Only letting down mankind
Check on yourself if you're doing alright
Forget about your pride

Ooh what a great sensation
When love is in your soul
Spread it across the nation
Hooliganism is cold
Let only love fill your soul
Fill up your soul

(..)

Hooligan, hooligan stop for a while
Change your hooligan style
Don't fight your brothers
You must use your head
Give a helping hand instead

Oh what a great sensation
When love is in your soul
Spread it across the nation
Hooliganism is cold
Let only love fill your soul
Fill up your soul

Posting reggae music seems to have angered the wind gods and given us nothing but 50mph gusts from the north for the past week.

Maybe a brand new Styx song about launching rockets will change the wind direction.

Ken Andrews. Mark Forbes,
It looks as though Bob is sticking to his guns and still presenting his case to the San Diego city council

Link


Link


The Gov(s) have asked me to respond to them in writing by May 24th and you are not going to like what my report contains.

You are not going to like this video that discredits the Theory of Evolution by presenting evidence Pteranodons existed at the time of the civil war and were exterminated in order to support the false theory that kept women from voting until 1920 by getting them to believe they had evolved into inferior housewives and African Americans to believed they had evolved into slaves and were not created beings.

Link


Link


If you don't believe any of this you can examine 1970s era hang gliders at this Sunday's 46th annual Otto Dockweiler Beach Hang Glider meet.
Icarosaurus, extinct 260 million years ago?

Just concerned about the summertime inversion moving in.
Just how did George Jefferson "move on up" to the deluxe apartment in the sky.

It took a whole lotta trying just to get up the hill, and then headed to the east side.

I filled out some paperwork but did not implicated Ushpa. Those mentioned in the persicution of Bobk were SD city councile, SD police, Torrey Pines glider port and Jebb Family. Ushpa is guilty of US Trademark misclassification and I will deal with that if I can get out of Jury Duty.

Jury duty is important. Someone's future may depend on you. USHPA's kangaroo court is a good reminder of what happens without an objective jury of one's peers.

This episode of the Bob show is dedicated to Adam West 1928-2017

The Executive committee is plotting against BobK


Those fiends lets bash them for forging a trademark application that didn't mention over half their dues was spent on hang gliding insurance.


Wait Batman, the Ushpa split off the insurance into a separate corporation called a risk retention group to hide their monopolistic status.
"Great Scott" you're right Robin.


There is BobK in another video in front of the SD City Councile.


Sir I would like to propose going down to SD and posing as a pilot and join the UShawks.org and attempt to buy insurance through them to expose the ushpa insurance monopoly.



Alfred is arrested by the SD police for trespassing at Torrey Pines Gliderport.


"Holy Obamacare Batman"!! The UShawks.org don't even offer insurance as the are purely recreational hang gliding. Foiled again Boy Wonder.


Wait is that Aunt Harriet getting low over the powerlines in the bat glider? "Pull in Aunt Harriet, Pull in!!"


She landed ok as best glide is better than minimum sink when extending your glide.


The bat glider was undamaged.

The Bat signal will be lit in Los Angeles to honor the late Adam West tonight.
Read more at http://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/858895-adam-west-bat-signal#811XEZddGl3BFiAg.99


Many People showed up for the event.
http://www.trbimg.com/img-594356c7/turbine/la-batman-lights-up-city-hall-20170615-005

He lived to be nearly ninety years old because he sought justice and more importantly safety.
Such as always wear a helmet and always hook in.



More importantly the Bob show will now move into the more profitable "Movie Format" like other shows like the Simpsons and Startrek.
With a planned sequel this is truely Ushpa's worst nightmare.

Look for more epic plot lines and more epic maniacal villains
So Tune in Next Week, Same BobK time, Same Bobk Channel.

Ok Bear with me on this.
I am going to release the sequel to the BobK show in movie format first just like Star wars did so the original BobK movie is now a prequel. Thus this a spoiler to the Prequel to where BobK failed to bring about a rebellion against the Ushpa where the various disgruntled factions could not set aside their differences and pull together against a common cause much like the native Americans couldn't unite against the White-man Settlers.


The Good new for BobK is in the sequel he wins his cause against the Ushpa but at great cost. Here we go:

After privatizing the FAA we again see a situation but on a grand scale like the one we saw at Missoula in 2007 where hang gliding was banned but this time nationally.


http://mtstandard.com/news/state-and-regional/missoula-hang-gliders-grounded-in-disagreement-over-air-space/article_566bbd0d-84b4-5a9f-8a1b-af4d6bd3587d.html
Air traffic manager Henry Barsotti was in the tower when that incident happened, as well as one in which a hang glider coming in from Alberton flew into controlled air space without permission from the tower, causing concern for one airplane; and another in which a hang gliding pilot called the tower upset that a commercial airplane got too close to a hang glider.

Barsotti, concerned that it would happen again, called UM and the U.S. Forest Service, which controls the road the hang-gliding club uses to access the top of Mount Sentinel.

In the past few weeks, UM has received letters from the hang gliding club and from Barsotti’s boss, David McCann, who is administrator with Serco Management Services Inc., the company contracted by the FAA to manage the Missoula control tower.

McCann said it’s dangerous to have hang gliders operating in the path commercial airlines use to land at the Missoula airport, and that hang gliding pilots were not consistent in notifying air traffic controllers about their plans.


With hang gliding banned nation-wide the only option is to join the renegade ushawks.org




Hang Gliding operations retreat back on to Indian Reservations Like Soboba.


After the factories were shut down and plans burned, the plans were tattooed on individuals to ensure their survival.

Thanks for including that picture of my arrest. It's a reminder of what's been accomplished since then.

Robin Marien had me arrested (and jailed) 3 times in 2014 and 2015. Each time I asserted my right to be on our public parkland and I allowed myself to be arrested to bring the matter to court. In all three cases, the City of San Diego never filed charges because they didn't have a leg to stand on in a court of law. Now I can go there any time without being threatened with arrest. I go there regularly and was just there this past Sunday for our Torrey Hawks Second Sunday in July.

This is more than just a victory for me. It's a victory for all pilots who want to enjoy Torrey without being bullied. Before my efforts, Jebb would regularly threaten pilots with arrest. That bullying tactic doesn't work so well any more. I would be flying there (and at many other sites) to this day if it weren't for USHPA's monopoly and unjust expulsion. But I'm working on that as well. Smile

P.S. If Ken is smart enough to migrate this forum, he's smart enough to know that everything I've said is true. That means he knows that the expulsion was both unjust and puts USHPA in a tricky situation with regard to public use of public land. The fact that Ken is doing nothing to remedy the situation is a stain on his otherwise exemplary character. That's what the bad apples at USHPA do ... they spoil the barrel.
