Fall Soaring Festival

All, We will be having a Fall Soaring Festival at Grantsville on Saturday 16. This will be an aerotow, as well as fun fly for whatever you wish to bring. We expect some members of the South Davis RC Club to be joining as well. See the attached flyer as well as the photo of a Sign that will be placed on the road to insure that any visitors can find us. Wid's son works at a print shop and had this made for us.

Wid and I will be camping our Friday afternoon if you would like to join us.

Please let me know if you will be joining so we can plan breakfast. Breakfast will be served 8:30 to 9:30. Flying starts right after breakfast.

I might not make it, my son is sick and my wife has plans so I might have to stay home with the boy. We will play it by ear tomorrow.

Sorry for the last minute notice.

Hey, you Grantsville veterans, they got .30 inches of rain last night. How will that affect the flats?

Just got off the phone with Lee. He and Wid are at the Grantsville flying site and all is well. No puddles on the road; flats are dry. Come on out and join us tomorrow! Breakfast from 8:30 to 9:30...

We all had a great time, Aerotows, electric assist Sailplanes , park flyers and aerobatic 3D and thermal duration with winch launch. It was great to see Ron's Storch in the air again! Engine ran flawlessly, impressive as this has not run in a while. The Breakfast was great, thanks to Dave Roberts, Wid and Dave R. friend Dave for help with the breakfast.

Mike and Dave, Thanks for being our tow pilots.

Lots of fun and great weather!

bummer for me

Sorry I missed this one. Sounds like a lot of fun. Was planning on it but got home late Sat morning from work and would have probably fallen asleep at the wheel on my out.

Hope to make the next one.
