More details: Heading to Los Paseos Park, South San Jose at 8:30am today to set up my hose monster histart and fly some DLG. I will probably pack up around 11:00 when the winds are suppose to pick up. Happy fathers day. My guess is there may be some DLG flying at Kennedy Middle School today since it is open according to JohnB in LG.

Martial Cottle Park Next Wednesday

I Have a request for a flight event for Wednesday 24th about 9:30am at Martial Cottle Park, San Jose in the field directly north of the park headquarters. I will post our approval when it comes. Park for free at the south entrance on the street (about 150 yard walk). I will bring DLG, and histart. We havenít got permission for motorized gliders yet, but I think they will be open to it perhaps when we chat with the ranger again. Letís not push that on. Please have AMA insurance since there are people and farming going on in this location.

My request came through so I will be flying Wednesday 6/24 from 9:30 to 11:30. I have not gotten formal permission for using a histart, but they field is just barely big enough for my Hose Monster histart if I shorten the line by a 100 feet. That said the my Supra is still probably too big for a comfortable landing. A 100" wingspan may be more appropriate.

No Flying Sunday Due to Wind

Kenney - Sunday 6/28

Last Sunday's DLG flying at Kennedy was a treat - the forecasted wind did not arrive, there were slight breezes from ever-changing directions, it was warm but not hot, the field was green and freshly aeriated, and the field was unoccupied except for the DLG fliers. Try it, you will like it.

And now for something completely different (sorry bout the ads):

Flying at Brigantino tomorrow. I think Rich and Don will have their motorized F5J planes and a landing tape set up. I bring my hose monster hi-start which anyone can use. We will be social distancing. I’ll try to get there at 9:00ish and fly my Xplorer 1 with my Supra as a backup.

Hey everyone, I just started flying my first glider and was wondering if anyone was flying anytime soon. Would love to learn from others and never really did any slope soaring.

Some of us DLG and hi-start folks will be flying at Kennedy Middle School tomorrow (7/19) starting around 9:30AM. Feel free to stop by for assistance with setting up your glider and doing initial flights. Our club is SBSS (South Bay Soaring Society) and we encourage anyone interested to come and learn.
