Question

Active club?


Hi,

My name is Rob, I live in Morgan Hill and I’m looking for an active club to join. How active a club is SBSS? Do you still have the field in Morgan Hill? (It’s on my doorstep, quite literally.)

I currently own an HH RadianXL, and a Great Planes Kunai, and a GO Mini DLG. I’m interested in trying my hand at a bit of thermalling, slope soaring, and meeting others with similar interests.

Cheers
Rob

Hi Rob,
We have launch equipment out at at field in Hollister on a regular basis. https://goo.gl/maps/5mKo6upgXkN2 Look for the Where's the Winch thread for times. Come out and join us if you have an AMA membership. We need it for insurance. If you are happy join the club.

Thank you both for the replies. I do have AMA membership, I think I bought it on Monday. I’ve just completed the membership form and will be posting it in the morning. Look forward to meeting you all.

Cheers

Rob,

Several of us fly DLGs at Kennedy Middle School on Sunday mornings between 9AM and 1PM. Map below.

I would be very interested in seeing your Go Mini as I am in the process of deciding between a Go Mini and a Strike 3. We will be flying at Kennedy tomorrow starting around 9:30 and you are welcome to join us.

Hi John,

Sorry I missed your reply, just saw it. I am still waiting for the Go Mini Kit to be delivered. But I’m more than happy to bring it down when I get it. Would you like to see it in kit form, as delivered?

Certainly, and so will anyone else who shows up at Kennedy that day. Consider posting in the club's "Where are you flying winchless today" forum when you plan to bring it. tnx

Hi Rob,
It sometimes takes a bit for your membership to get processed as the mail needs to be passed on thru several people. You are more than welcome to participate in any club activities in the mean time.
