NorCal MOM Speedo Racing
We are talking about having an affordable Man On Man (MOM) racing series. The thinking is every pilot would have the same sailplane - Speedos. Skip Miller has agreed to give us a quantity discount.
We will fly at different venues, depending on the wind.
We are in the planning stages, more details to come...............
We could have an 8 race series or so......we could do this as a monthly racing series...............
Open to ideas.................
So who is interested?

Dave I would be interested and I think Paul would be to. We have a couple other guys with Speedos in the Woodland club we might be able to get interested to.

come up with some rules before mass buy
stock wing IE: no sheating or adding carbon rod or spruce to leading edge
would it be ok to beaf up fuze?

You guys will have a lot of fun with this! We've had a number of Speedo races down here in SoCal, and it's a great way to get people involved in man-on-man racing who wouldn't ordinarily be able to do so.
We allow mods to fuses, but the wings must be stock.

I know of a few places we can fly them at
Lots of places in the bays area

Yeah, this should be a lot of fun.
I like the idea about keeping the wing stock and allowing mods to fuses. Makes sense.
