19th Annual IHLGF April 28 and 29th, 2012

Good Morning DLG enthusiasts,

The Torrey Pines Gulls Soaring Club proudly announces that registration for the 19th annual IHLGF is now open. Please use this link: to navigate to the IHLGF website, and click on the Registration tab. The rest should be self explanatory.

This years platinum sponsor is Hitec. We are happy to have Hitec on board with us this year. It is the first year that Hitec has been our headliner, and we are really excited about that. They are a local company with offices less than 4 miles away from the Poway field. Welcome Hitec. Our gold sponsors this year include Horizon Hobby, Soaring USA, and Airtronics. All 3 have been fantastic and consistent supporters of DLG and the IHLGF. CST will be donating some goodies to the auction too. Keep checking at the IHLGF site for updated sponsor lists and links.

Make sure to bookmark the IHLGF page, as updates in the form of Auction lists, and social event attendees lists among other cool ideas and announcements will be posted there. We will of course allert the masses here on the Groups as well.

Please plan to be with us the weekend of April 28, 29, 2012. This will be a very interesting event. We have seen so much growth in DLG across our country, and the skills of the competitors has risen expnentially. There are quite a few pilots that are capable of winning a major these days. Its that new blood we love to see slinging spread tow in the flyoffs.

We especially welcome those that are planning to come from out of town, state, and country. We have a team of 4 from Brazil coming out to Poway this year. Great to have you back Bruno and gang. We have the current F3K World Champ planning to show up and show a thing or two about how to train you blind squirel to sniff out those invisible thermals, and we are looking forward to a bunch of hungry competitors.

Speaking of hungry, make sure to take a look at the Social Page on the IHLGF website. Some tasty food rendesvous are planned. We can get a list going here in the groups, and/or on the website of who might be planning to show up at Phils BBQ on Thursday, or even the Friday lunch at Stone Brewery.

For those coming from out of town...We will be providing comfort in the form of Shade and Seats along with some other help like charging stations and coolers. We have learned from last year, and rest assured there will be some dedicated space for you all that are making the big effort to get to this contest this year. Pirority is given to anyone coming from out of country, then state, then county, then....well, no priority for us locals. Please let me or Dave Klein know via PM or email if you have any special needs, or if you just want to ensure that we have accounted for you in our efforts regarding comfort.

Note that if you do buy a t-shirt, $5 of every purchase will be donated to the US F3K Team fund. Also, if you plan to take advantage of our fantastic Auction at the field, you must know that 25% of every dollar you spend will also be donated to the US F3K Team fund. We have our sponsors to thank for this opportunity, so be sure to click on their banners and do a little brousing and shopping.
