Gliders at Harbor Soaring Society shut down

I guess we all saw this coming, apparently the club is going to enforce the 400 foot altitude limit, while we technically can still fly a glider there, a good winch launch can exceed 400 feet, long gone are the days when we flew large scale gliders there, at 400 I am setting up for a final with the large stuff.
I felt a little sadness 2 weeks ago flying in the SC/2 contest, I had a feeling this might be the last true soaring contest ever held at the field. Too bad, Harbor Soaring is the oldest AMA soaring club, while I have nothing against electric rc models (I even have a few), they might want to change the club name to something like the "Harbor R/C Society", true thermal soaring is finished at Harbor.
