Mark B put on a good event.

I counted 14 pilots and a crap load of planes. Wind was light 7-8 but might have picked up when I left around 3.

I saw some construction fences on Bill Hill hill. Do you know what’s going on there?

Hi Ray

I was thinking about coming down to torrey for this fest because I’m about to build a Jester or two for DS and Slope.
I wasn’t driving down there to torrey unless it’s worth it. No answer so I bailed.

The whole Ranch (&Bills Hill) is under a construction project for the next two to three years.

Pilots are welcome to fly but unfortunately you CAN NOT EVER just go out there.

There are extenuating circumstances and you a person will be escorted off the property by security and they are packing heat!

With that said all you need to do is let me know you want to fly and I can get authorization. I have a giant combo lock at the gate so it’s easy.

It just has to go by the process.

The speeds are excellent and the path and entire hill is groomed now. I’ve been cutting trees and saplings for a couple of months. The LZ is a dream.

Let’s fly!

Scalie Fun Fly = August 24th


Hi Gulls,

Just a reminder that next Saturday, August 24th, is our next scheduled Fun Fly; it’s all about Scalies! Bring out your Scale Gliders: large scale, medium scale, small scale, any scale, ASH’s ASW’s, DG’s, KA’s. Or, just bring whatever plane that you have!

If you haven’t been in to Torrey Pines Gliderport in a while, it’s time to come out. The paraglider folks are behaving so much better lately. In other words, their rules of one-in-the-window, and alerting us RC’ers that they’re flying through with a whistle or yell has improved immensely. Let’s be safe and limit the number of planes in the air to no more than seven, (7) and if you’re not flying, please pitch in and be a spotter. We want this to be a safe, fun place for everyone! Also, check your battery health, antenna orientation, (90 degrees from one another) all connections, and flying surface orientation to your transmitter input before launching.

If you haven’t checked in at the Gliderport by signing the yearly waivers, please do so, and please make sure that you check in for the day for the rest of you.

See you all out there, and blue sky’s!

• Aug 24th – Scaleies
• Sept 21st – Old School Vintage/ Crunchies
• Nov 23rd – No Shopping Saturday

VTPR & Slope Aerobatics
surfimp's Avatar
When in the slope aerobatics day, and if its not on the calendar, may I please propose its inclusion? I'd be happy to bring my "flying circus," including a variety of extremely rare and/or "never-before-seen-in-the-US" French designs, along for display and show-and-tell. And I know there are plenty of folks in the SD and greater SoCal area that are into VTPR and slope aerobatics, too!

It could be fun?

Aerobatics Day


I think the aerobatics day was the Twisty and Pointy nose day....🤡

Or any day because of the Ahis that come out so frequently.

How about just any day? No excuses needed!
