South Bay Soaring Society July Thermal Contest


WHAT: South Bay Soaring Society July Thermal Contest

When: Sunday, July, 30 2017 (Rain Date: August 6)

WHERE: Brigantino Field, Hollister, CA

Pilots meeting is 9:15 so we are going to be starting to set up by 8:30.

NOTE: If you need transportation to the back of the field where we will be flying, please let us know since only 4 vehicles are permitted inside the fence. We will try provide a shuttle, if needed.

ROUNDS: 4

CLASSES: OPEN (expert (e), sportsman (s), fledgling (f))

RES (e,s,f)

Nostalgia/Nostalgia Like (e.g. Vista) limited to 3 functions

Electric Thermal Duration (ETD)

COST: $10.00 per class (correct change appreciated)

For LSF compatibility: All pilots will fly the same tasks (5, 9,12 and 14 min) in order. Pilots will be broken into groups without regard for class. Each group will fly MoM style. We will use a fly one-time one mode of operation.

DIRECTIONS: Take 101 south past Gilroy to Hwy 156. Take 156 East toward Hollister. When 156 turns Northward, follow signs toward Hollister (right turn). Field is on the right about 1 mile further on.

Look for Colin, a publicist visitor!


On Sunday, June 30th, Colin (missed his last name), a publicist doing photos for publication on Hollister, may show up at Brigantino for the Sunday contest with his 9 year old son. He was at the Thursday flying event and took photos and videos. He's unfamiliar with RC flying, so if he does show up it'd be nice for someone to chat with him, show him around and answer questions he may have.

This could help our Hollister outreach effort. So watch out for a "fence hanger" who may have a camera in hand and showing interest.
