1st Annual San Felasco Hand Launch Glider Festival


Mark your calender, there will be a DLG gathering Feb 16 at San Felasco Preserve State Park just north of Gainesville. We fly in a 55 acre hayfield so there's plenty of room. Pilots meeting at 9:30AM, contest rounds from 10:00AM till 2:30PM.
This is our first attempt at a contest, but we hope to grow this into an annual event that will allow the folks from colder climes to take a midwinter break from the snow and join us for a weekend of flying in sunny Florida.

Looks like I've got an official deadline now!

I can't promise anything, but if it all comes together by then I'll try to be there. (Building as fast as life will let me!)

Update 2/13 - sadly, I will not be able to attend this one due to a scheduling conflict that just came up. I hope you'll have a great time and I will definitely be thinking of you - at least the conflict is big planes instead of work!

Original message:
I just made camping reservations at Paynes Prairie for Friday and Saturday nights and plan to attend the contest.

My frequency preference is channel 48. I can switch to 57 if necessary, and I have a synthesized TX.
