Can't help you for the madison area specifically, but if you google "Cheese Head Chuck Fest" you will find a contest close to you, and maybe you can contact the guys that run it and see if anyone near you has signed up.

There are probably only 4 serious DLG dudes in Wisconsin.

Myself, and my 3 fellow Cheeshead Chuckers near Appleton, Scott "szastoupil", Ryan "rtbrowntrout", and Garth.

I typically fly by myself at a nearby Church and do not practice enough. This year I am spending more time remodeling my home instead of flying the contest. Just finished the SOAR 2 day contest and getting ready now for the NATS.

As Steve mentioned, Scott, Garth, and I are in the Appleton area. If you are willing to make the 1 1/2 hour drive, we can set up a weekend for you to come and visit us at the Anderson sod farm just outside Appleton (leased by our RC club) and fly with us. We are glad to help you if you need some help getting started.

Scott and I just got back from the SOAR contest in Chicago as well, and Scott, Garth, and I are heading to the NATS, but we should have some weekends open in August.

Send me a PM if you are interested. There are some other DLGers in Wisconsin, but I'm not sure if they will post here or not.

Nate, if you are ever back in Peshtigo area in the summer and want to do some flying, let us know.

My Dad lives in Cedarburg (north of Milwaukee) and flies DLGs as well. Just not as much as he should.....

Starting to sound like there needs to be more Wisconsin Events. Who knows, maybe i'll show up again!

The Madison Club used to have some great soaring guys. Not sure now if they even have anyone left anymore that soars. http://www.marcswi.org/

I'm definitely not a "Serious DLG Dude" anymore- I was just checking RC groups to see if the Cheesehead Chuckfest is happening this year!

But I do build and fly DLGs in Madison- it would be fun to get more people involved. There are actually a ton of people into slope soaring in Madison also.

Let me know if you want to fly...
Ben

There will be no Cheesehead Chuckfest DLG contest for 2012. Hopefully we'll resume in 2013.

I am currently researching my purchase to get into DLG. Kind of a bad time as winter is approaching but, hey flying in cold we're use to.

Just giving a shout out from the Sussex, WI area.
