Thanks to the TPG.
I just wanted to mention something that happened to me.
I came from West Virginia this week and haven't flown RC gliders very much yet, but I had read all about the Torrey Pines Gulls and Southern California soaring.
I drove to Poway Field after work and thought I'd watch what was going on.
The minute I got there the guys made me feel at home and before I left, I had gotten to fly a couple of great DLG's and was treated to some good "contest" savvy advice, some buying tips and a critique of my planes...
This was way beyond what I had expected, I knew they'd be polite but they treated me like family without even knowing me.
Cheers to Don Richmond and the crew out at Poway Field on 12/06/02!
