IHLGF 2017 - 24th Annual International Hand Launch Glider Festival

Hello everyone, and congratulations again to our new F3K WC team. Toby, Mike and George, you guys are awesome, and we wish you all the success your hard work and perseverance deserves.

You will have a chance to test your skills again next year in Poway on the weekend of April 29th and 30th, 2017!

These are the dates that have been selected for the next IHLGF, so please mark you calendars accordingly and make plans to attend. We always reach out to our friends out of country to see what dates might be problematic and which would work best, and this time with these dates, we might be able to get Roland to return from Germany.

By getting these dates out early, we hope to fit into many peoples travel plans. April should be beautiful here as it normally is, so obviously bring the family along. There is plenty to do other than hang at the field.

We are all looking forward to seeing you here again and helping to contribute to what has become the single largest source of funding for our f3k team pilots.

This year, from our last IHLGF proceeds we are very happy to announce a $2,500 donation to the F3K team fund! Thank you to all that participated in our fundraising activities and especially to the generous vendors for providing such awesome products that we just can't live without.

Save this date everyone. See you next year in Poway.

Registration is open. Go to and click on the Registration tab.

It's unlikely I'll be able to make it there next year as I'll be off in an undisclosed location, but I'll be cheering everyone on in spirit! Can't wait to see how Team USA fares at the WC next year too!

That is just too cool, Mike and the TPG. Thank you for the big donation!

I definitely plan to be there again next year. Dates blocked off. Hopefully I won't repeat the long landout and never see the plane again thing...
