Sunday landings

Sunday winds turned W-N/W and switchy in the LZ. Don't know who was filming, but came across it today on YouTube;

Maybe the author will identify himself?

Two good days in a row

Both Sunday and Monday we had rare for this time of the year good conditions. Pilots got 7-8k and flew to Lukens and West Towers and in between. Dave Cutter almost made it to Mt. Wilson (again!).

Yosemite video

O.K. folks, my Yosemite Video is in OZ Report Video Library. http://www.ozreportradio.com/video?VrezhYosemite.avi. They named it Vrezh Yosemite :) You'll see 2 links, leading to 10 Meg and 63 Meg versions. The difference of course is quality. I apologize for a dead link at Chip's site; he got hacked...

Dahlsten Cup Radio

I installed a switch on my helmet recently, because I couldn't take it any longer than a few minutes.
I forced myself to listen to the whole recording. Gee, it's too sad to be funny. Makes me think we need a radio director in the board... :oops:
Thanks, Chip.

SHGA communications

Thanks for making it clear, Christian. Your posts are always "right on the money", no complain, I enjoy reading. It's just funny how some times we come across a post and end up getting puzzled, who might that be?...If one is intimidated enough to express his/her opinion on this forum, why wouldn’t...

Pissed off

One would exercise common sense and at least stay east of the dam during that fire near 14 freeway, knowing, they might need to get water from the reservoir. You de...

The First Kagel Convergence is Here, Where is Everybody?

Sunday, September 17. Blowing down on the top, 8-10 S in the LZ. Everybody went to Ave S. The soarcast is good. Guys, you want to go up? They were sitting in the gazebo. Nah, they said, it's blowing down. By the time I set up, it slowly diminished to occasional puffs from S-E. The main streamer on t...

I must be really shaken and worn out of stress, for I mumbled something about going further but quickly gave up to the demands of fellas on the ground to land for Christ’s Sake. Inspected my trusty Aeros Stealth closely. Battens #2 and 3 were bent upwards. Outboard dive sticks/sprogs were bent dow...

Carrying a glider from setup area to near launch area while hooked in could be unsafe in mountain sites. I have seen at least a few instances, when the pilot lost the control and got turned/flipped/dragged (one of them cartwilled uphill!!!). I prefer to carry the glider to a safe place near launch r...

How many Sylmar Hang Gliding Association.com-s are there?...

How many Sylmar Hang Gliding Association. com-s are there you think? Well, Google it! The old site is still there. Even Windsports' SHGA link will take you there. It has the picture of my glider on the first page, which I like of course, but looks like the world has no way to tell the two apart, sin...

Flying Kagel with helicopter

Monday, January 30. My story: Several gliders were set up and ready to go and couple of them were already flying. The air was so hazy I could barely see the LZ, let alone gliders in the air. A helicopter approached from SE and circled above launch about 200' up. A pilot waved from the window, we wav...
