From 9:00

At SOGGI Flying Field, Caledonia.

We would like to start off the season with a fun fly and bbq. Basically bring whatever you have that flies! We’ve done this in the past and it has always been entertaining. Andy Meysner (905) 279-0173, will act as the field co-ordinator for this event.

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

A briefing will start at 9:30 am. Flying will begin around 10:00 AM. 

The event is open to all SOGGI members, and to any Guest flyer who can display his/her current MAAC membership card.  Wind direction permitting, we will have flight lines for hand launch, line launch and electric sailplanes.  Any size or type of sailplane may be flown, wind direction permitting.  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 fly at the event are nonetheless welcome to attend.  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.
