2014 Summer Soaring Challenge

Our 23 annual two-day event is scheduled for June 20 - 22.

"Wait a minute, the 20th through the 22nd is THREE days. I thought you said it is a two-day event". ALES make the difference. On Friday, there will be an ALES only contest at noon. That and the fact that ALES is one of the classes for Saturday and Sunday really puts the spotlight on ALES this year. Yup, three days of flying for ALES guys.

We'd really like to start filling up the flight order early this year so get your entry form mailed in. One is attached to this message. PayPal is a quick and easy way to pay. That's all set up on the club web site under the "Signup" tab.

Complete event details are posted on the web site here;

Support your club by signing up early and demonstrate to the soaring community that this will be a well attended event.

A Great Event

The 23rd annual Summer Soaring Challenge is history. We heard many compliments from our out-of-town guests on how well we did as a club, with our event. Hopefully we'll see them return next year.

There are many a tale to tell of close calls, low level saves, long walks, varying weather conditions, friendships renewed and camaraderie around during the lunch breaks. Hopefully some of our club members will share those experiences with those of you who were unable to attend.

One of the most prestigious awards made at the conclusion of the contest is the 2014 CD's Choice Award. This award is presented to the person who who exemplifies the spirit volunteering, by unselfishly helping to assure the success of our event. This year the award went to five SVSS members, our hard working landing judges. The fab five are; Tom Ball, Steven Bixby, Ed Granger, Tim Mello & Bob Sanders. A big SVSS thank you! You guys did a great job!!

Awesome flying and your 4th place win in such a competitive field. Really impressive. Let me be the first to wish you a fun remainder of the 2014 SVSS contest season in this, your last season in the Expert class. Move him up!
