4th of July Weekend SlopeTastic Day at Coyote Hills Park

Its that time of year again to haul out the limbo line and assorted bag of slope goodies for the annual 'slope thing' at Coyote Hills Park. Hope to see you this year!

Where: Glider Hill (lower hill) at Coyote Hills Park in Newark, CA
When: Saturday, July 6th ~ 1PM until whenever
Events: As usual, Limbo Racing, The Bagel Drop, Lucky Lander and more

Bring: Crash resistant foamie glider (no motors), water, sunblock, last year's bagel if you've got it

I'll have a couple of spare glider setups with me, so even if you show up empty handed you can still participate.

The weather forecast looks excellent for Saturday!

This year I wanted to add something special to this annual right of sloping, but the park rangers said I wasn't allowed to have a 60-ton Abrams tanks perched on top of Glider Hill. Something about it not being in the spirit of the park...

See you soon!
