Some help on relating this to hang gliding is invited.

During hang gliding discourse a mothering idea generator might be removed after she gives birth to a baby idea while just the baby remains. However, that same mother might birth another and another baby; and the mother may be good for breast feeding the baby; the separation may or may not be best for the baby.

For example, BobK generated a baby; BobK was banned from directly nurturing the baby at the first crib. However, the baby might move to a non-SG-crib to receive nurturing from BobK and a robust gathering of hang gliding village people, perhaps partly here in this forum with its tools. The baby now in SG's hands will grow with a certain shape and structure. But what may not have been noticed is that twins were born; two or more babies are extant; the babies may grow to be quite distinct in personality and perhaps serve factions of the American hang gliding population.

Thanks Joe,

Now I understand!! Man, if I could just win the lotto.

We flew today. Our payout winch is a POS. Can't get good climbs.
Once we get a good payout winch working, everyone is welcome to come to SW Tx.
Beautiful cloud streets all last week.

Thanks Joe. Thanks BobK.

Yes, there's plenty fruit still on the tree that the other Assn has
overlooked. Some of the best fruit. If HGAA recognizes the overlooked areas,
the other Assn. will look like a blind squirrel hunting acorns.

Leave the "string'controlled" gliders to build their USPGA or USPA.

Focus of HGAA proposed: frame-controlledg hand gliders.

What say you?

Joe, thanks for starting this forum.

Yes, in the past 10yr, the ushpa has been so distracted by "string controlled" interests that hang gliding has really suffered in this area, another decade wasted.

Today I have 3 very interested beginners to mentor. We don't have the best training equipment. The nearest hg instructor is in Mexico, somewhere, eating Margarita.

Am I promoting my area? Yes, because we have superior hang gliding conditions, but very few hg pilots!!.

Paul Montville a scapegoat for the BOD's own arrogance, IMO.
They will now re-arrange the deck chairs.
It's deja vu all over again.

Re: Yahoo Group · HGAusa and HGAA formation

On this 9th birthday of the U.S. Hawks, I celebrate the true founders of the U.S. Hawks who were working and posting in both Yahoo Groups and Google Groups after the implosion of the HGAA.

The names posted in this topic are the true founders of the U.S. Hawks before the U.S. Hawks forum even existed. Thanks to each of you.
