Slope soaring events in California

Post by jmendoza »

Coming this month:
April 28th is Weaselfest, hosted by Mike Richter of Dream Flight.
The place is Ellwood Bluff in Goleta Ca., Located off Hollister Ave., turn down either Coronado or Santa Barbara shores Drive and park at the end of the street, the bluff is about a 1/4 mile walk. This slope soaring event has been going strong for over a decade, it's casual and lots of fun, everyone welcome. See you there.

This summer:
June 2nd 2018 will be the Katie Martin Memorial fly at Torrey Pines and is hosted by the Torrey Pines Gulls. Located off the 5 freeway north of La Jolla Ca.. You will need to be an AMA member and pay $10 for a one day pass. Bob Martins wife Katie convinced him to buy the tooling from Midwest Models for the Hobie Hawk, so that is the focus of this event, but all types of sail planes are welcome. If you have a Coyote, Katie, SR-7, or any other Martin glider, bring it as Bob would love it. See you there.
