well look what I found when I googled slope soaring sacramento. I too live in roseville and woudl liek to find some spots to soar. I know that people fly ioff of Dyke 8 on folsom lake but I live too far to drive there to find out that the wind isnt blowing. Any luck in your search? I am also looking for someone to fly with. I will not pay to join a club.
Let me know

Slope Flying near SACTO

Other than Dike 8 and the Forestville bridge area, travel is needed to get to Los Banos (c140 miles) or Berkely Marina.

Think I might try to head out to Marin and check out the slope. Is it good in October?

I hear that R/C Country hobby store didn't have their usual fall swap meet. I was bummed because I had planned on attending. But fear not, becuase there is one down the road in Reno, next weekend. This is a great opportunity to clear out those items you don't need any more and generate some cash to fund your winter building projects.

The Swap Meet is sponsored by Bridewire, a community workspace. There is no cost to attend or to setup a table and sell your stuff. We are hoping to see a wide variety of items for sale but limited to hobby, electronics, crafts, etc. See the attached flyer and share with your freinds and families.

I hope to see you all there!
