2019 Season-Opener Thermal Duration Contest !

From 9:00

At SOGGI Flying Field, Caledonia.

SOGGI’s Contest Season-Opener is scheduled for Saturday June 15, 2019. Sunday June 16 is a possible rain-date. Confirmation will be e-mailed to our membership on Friday June 14. Non-members can obtain the confirmed date, and directions to our 2019 flying site by contacting CD Bob Hammett at ph 226-401-1966 or email: the_hammetts@rogers.com

This casual-contest’s aim is to have fun, to become familiar with our field routine, and to improve our flying skills. There is no entry fee.

Registration will be at 9:30 am. Flying will begin around 10:00 AM. Launch whenever you’re ready and it’s safe to do so. Contest Points will be awarded for flight duration and for landing in proximity to a ground target.

The contest is open to all SOGGI members, and to any Guest flyer who can display his/her current MAAC membership card. Any size or type of line-launch sailplane may be flown. The SOGGI winch will be on-hand. Additional hi-starts and winches would be appreciated. If this is your first exposure to line-launch operation, we will pair you with an experienced pilot to assist with launching your sailplane.

Members who choose not to enter the contest are nonetheless welcome to attend. We always need Timers at our contests, and any assistance with field set-up and tear-down is appreciated. The SOGGI Bar-B-Q will be fired up at lunch time. Make some new friends and become familiar with the field-routine. After the contest, have a coffee with us at Tim's in Caledonia.

To prevent distractions from jeopardizing field safety, flying activity unrelated to the contest is not permitted on the field during contest hours. Thank you for your understanding and for your continued support.
