Soar Utah 2020: September 3rd through September 7th


Soar Utah 2020 will begin Thursday, September 3rd and run through Monday, September 7th. We will be doing a Soar Utah “Light” again this year due to increased costs and reduced numbers of club members. We will not be making T-shirts and there will not be a formal dinner on Saturday. There is no pre-registration this year, please bring $40 in cash and we will issue Lanyards to folks at the site(s).

Thursday Afternoon September 3rd - We will begin flying at the Grantsville Salt Flats (also know on Google maps as Mistyway RC Model Airfield). This is our Aerotow site. Club members will be camping and cooking on the Flats. There will be food for the folks who wish to come that evening as well as a casual campfire. If you plan on joining us on the Salt Flats either Thursday or Friday, please let us know so we can have plenty of food.

Friday, September 4th - We will host an Aerotow at the Grantsville Salt Flats starting at 9:30 am and going to 5:00 pm. Friday morning, before the Aerotow gets started, we will serve Breakfast and there will be food available for Lunch. All the food at Grantsville will be free of charge, donations will be welcome. The Point of the Mountain site will also be available for slope flying and members of the club will be on site. On Friday, we will be sharing the site with hang gliders and paragliders. Please fly from the RC part of the slope on the west side. Also, please remember, paragliders and hang gliders have the right of way.

Saturday, September 5th - All Day Fun Fly at the Point of the Mountain, sunrise to sunset. We are planning on having exclusive use of the Flight parks on both the North and South sides. There will be water and light snacks provided by IMSF.

Sunday, September 6th - Day 2 of the all day fun fly at the Point. Again, we are planning on having exclusive use of the Flight parks on both the North and South sides. There will be Water and light snacks provided by IMSF.

Monday, September 7th - We will be traveling to Francis Peak, a 9560’ high alpine soaring site with incredible views of the Great Salt Lake Valley (Google map coordinates 41.020177, -111.834770). There will be water and light snacks provided by IMSF.

Its unfortunate that this event seems to be declining b/c I look forward to it every other year. I plan to come, my 6th SU. I've also got a brand new Ceres there waiting for me!

Would anyone attending this years SU be interested in my Espada? It’s not a good model to be shipping to and from the places I fly. Previous attendees may recognize this airplane. It has some slope bruises (all of which are from shipping it) I can describe in more detail if there is interest. I’d be asking $500.
