Hello opualuan

As I recall, you fly over at Rancho San Antonio Park in Cupertino - is that right???

If so, and you don't mind a 20 mile drive, you might consider bringing your DAW Schweizer 1-26 to Cal State Hayward this weekend.

As long as the onshore winds are working (roughly 240 - 280 degrees), you're bound to see at least a few slope pilots up there. A lot of newcomers to that site enjoy the show unwittingly put on by our resident advanced pilots. These two guys spend a lot of their time dynamic soaring with these beautiful Y2Ks and Icons. It's pretty amazing. On sunday, one guy was clocked at 120 mph. Pretty cool stuff ;-)

On a good daym that site is a great place to fly.

I hope to see you up there. My 1-26 has a yellow fuse with white wings. The Dragonette is blue and white. I'm pretty sure it would be the only one on the hill ;-)

Happy flying
