TFR? So what, Crestline was On!

I was sort of resigned that flying this weekend was going to be a bust due to Santa Ana's and the TFR that arose because of the fire. I'll give it to Phill Bloom for keeping me in the loop as to what was being discussed and where others might be going to fly. Since my glider is at Sylmar, I am behol...

World Team Fundraiser

Dear Friends and Colleagues, Some of you know that I’ve been flying Hang Gliders for the better part of my adult life. It’s been an integral part of my DNA that has taken me many places and I’ve experienced the “thrill” of being at cloudbase over 18,000’ while being snowed on in the middle of summer...

Lost iPod Nano

You likely all know my son Samuel. He has lost his iPod nano that he used when driving for you guys. Hoping one of you might have found it and can make that boy happy by returning it.

Nice turn out. Thanks to all the volunteers that help make this a very well run event. An special thanks to all those responsible to making sure everyone was fed. I had a bit of a mistake in prize awarding for the sport class based on some erroneous task setup on the FS software that took the better...

I wish, but it was pretty good. Started to turn about 30 minutes after Phill and I arrived (it had been down all morning but was forecast to turn about 10ish). Good turn out from the SB crew and they gave us a pretty warm welcome despite the chilly conditions at 10:30. Launched, turned right and con...

OK, slackers, or maybe no one really uses the internet while at the LZ. I mean we are there to hang glide.

However, from my perspective, it's better than it's ever been.

Give it a try if you've been less than pleased with the previous performance.

The Camera should be now fully automated so that it points at the correct place during the day. It's programmed to start looking at the windsock on top at 8:15 and then will cycle every 15 minutes from the LZ windsock to the top. At 9:05am it will stay on the top until about 3 when it will then focu...
