TD sites near Glendale CA. PSS?
I have been away from R/C soaring for the last 8 years or so but still have all my gear and would like to start flying a bit again. I use to fly with SCSA in Valencia and flew the contest circuit in Passadena, Gilbert AZ and CVRC. I did a search and it looks like many of the places i use to fly no longer have sanctioned clubs. I am now only 10 min from the Rose Bowl and still have a Rahm Winch and retriever and was thinking of setting up once a week after work at the large field that PSS use to hold their contests. I am curious if its OK to fly there anymore. Also probably to start and test the waters with the people there, I would likely just bring a DLG and curious if there are any locals on here who fly DLG either at the rosebowl or in the general area. I still have a few Taboo's, Photon II poly and aileron version and an unbuilt molded DLG but cant remember the name.
I have a synthesized JR9303 but would likely make the switch to 2.4 mghz instead.

Far as I know the Rose Bowl is still available for informal flying...haven't been there in three years though. We used to set up FAI winches and fly on weekday mornings.
One day at that location, before 2.4 was really popular, some moron showed up with his heli on 72MHz, turned on and started flying without so much as a word. Our frequency scanner showed he was on a channel we were using, but we happened to be on the ground at that moment. Walked over and asked him WTMF? He says "well, I turned on and nothing happened, so I figured it was OK..." That was the end of 72MHz for me.

I stumbled onto this topic and now just got off the phone with Marc (OP) who I know from hang gliding at Sylmar during the past few years. We now have tentative plans to meet up and fly at the Rose bowl. I haven't flown R/C sailplanes since 1987 but am returning due to a neck injury from having too much fun too close to the ground on my hang glider. Currently searching for a suitable sailplane to keep my thermalling skills in trim while I recover.
