The shafari is what takes place after the flying is done for the day and the adult beverages start flowing

Thermal Shafari

The Thermal Safari is done every year by a group of RC X/C flyers from Oregon and California normaly in April time frame, We all gather in Northern california on back roads and launch our X/C ships and then fly to a point 40 to 50 miles away trying to stay togather. Spend the night in a local hotel have dinner and talk sailplanes with friends and the beer. (Good time). The next morning we relaunch and fly further south another 40 to 50 miles. If you have to land on course you relite and keep going at the end we just all say our goodbyes and wait for the next X/C event The country side is fantastic. Come join us!

R,

And when you finally feel the need, I have a Super SBXC for sale. It has a 100 Km flight along with lots of others under its wing.
