SVSS Monthly ALES Contest – March 22nd in Davis, CA
What a great time of year! Still licking the wounds over the 49er’s loss, but excited to see the Giants pre-season is already under way. Speaking of seasons, the new ALES season is just about to get under way as well. We had a terrific 2013 with many of our pilots scoring amongst the best in the nation. This year should be just as exciting with the promise of a number of new pilots and a variety of new planes as well.
You never quite know what flying conditions you will face at the start of the season. Last Sunday was stunning, and this week has brought us some wind and much needed rain, so be sure to pack your sunscreen and your ballast in your flight box.
If you haven't made it out to join us, you are missing a lot of fun and excitement. We fly in a man-on-man format with as many as a dozen planes launching simultaneously. Everyone has equal opportunities to find and catch lift, so if you are looking for a level playing field, SVSS ALES is your place.
Worried about having to sink another kilo-buck or more into a plane in order to be competitive? Not here. Top finishers have included Radians, Paragons, Oly’s and Bird-of-Times, so if you think you don’t have a plane to fly, check in the back of your closet or up in the rafters first.
Our Pilots’ Meeting will be at 9:30 and first flights at 10am. Entry fee is $10 and AMA membership is required. We haven’t locked down the menu yet, but as always bring your plane and your appetite.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
