Must fly spots????
I would like to try some slope flying in California but don't know what are the "must fly" spots. So far the only slope flying for me has been inland, mostly "A" mountain in Tucson. The Halfpipe, DAW I-26 would be at least two of the planes to come along on the adventure. What events and or sites are recommended. Any other gliders that would be good to bring???

There are lots of good spots in Cali. It's a big place so if you could narrow it down a bit you'll get better answers. There are lots of upcoming events though. The Los Banos Scale fun fly is April 23, 24. The PSS festival is May 28, 29th. The International Slope Race is May 21st and 22nd.
here's a few of the more well know spots

The biggest slope happening is the PSS Festival over memorial weekend at the Cajon Summit Slope in San Bernardino. Definately worth the trip from AZ. Saturday is the best day to attend from a spectators point of view. Friday you can fly if you want but Saturday you need to be a registered pilot. Lots to see on Saturday though. Hundereds of planes, there are a few build clinics and a huge raffle with gobs of kits, radios and other goodies.
Parker Mt, Point Fermin, Vincent, Little Mt, Temple hill are all within an hour or two of Cajon

Another vote for the PSS Fest. Worth the drive even if you're not flying, IMHO.
Other than that, just to further "ditto" the above, I would definitely hit Parker/Vincent, Cajon Pass, and Pt. Fermin. They're like the Sunset Beach, Pipeline, and Waimea of slope soaring, at least IMHO.
Eh, oh right. You're not from California. That analogy is useless! LOL
Anyways, dooo eeet!
