Looking for flying sites in the Ft. Collins Colorado area.

Looking for flying sites in the Ft. Collins area.

Anyone know of some nice areas around the Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley
Colorado to fly Sailplanes? I already know about the two R/C clubs, but would
prefer flying in an area where mostly folks go to fly sailplanes. I am an AMA
member so that is not an issue. I would be happy to join a RC sailplane club
reasonably near. Working on and off on a couple of gliders and I hope to be
ready to get back into flying again by the end of August. The building and
flying went to the shelf for the last several months due to an economic
enforced vacation, better known as a layoff. Amazingly my old company decided
that they laid off the wrong person and with a few adjustments, I am fully
employed once again.
While I have belonged and enjoyed RC clubs, my main issue from experience with
regular R/C clubs is that often electric and sailplane folks get treated like
second class citizens and still pay the runway fees on top of the usual club
dues for a strip that we almost never get to use. This is my second time
around with RC after a 10-year gap and I have no interest in fuel powered
engine flight. I want to stick with sailplanes, electric motors, and some park
Any suggestions of locations are greatly appreciated.

P.S. Yes I know this goes out all over the world, I am just hoping someone
local may be able to help me.
Please save the arrogant yank trolls for someone else.
