Hi, folks! The Rio Grande Soaring Association is planning another Fly-In this year over Memorial Day weekend, May 28 through May 30, in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The Dry Canyon site (H3/P3) is one of the most consistently soarable launches in the USA, and nearby is a second site, La Luz (H2/P2) which handles most common wind directions when Dry Canyon doesn't work. It's a long way to drive, I know, but the flying is uncrowded and you can soar pretty much every day, as long as you can stay. Alamogordo is a city of about 40,000 people, they love our flying, and they have every convenience a pilot and family could want - hotels, camping, coffee houses, restaurants and grocery stores. Nearby are the tall, cool pines of mountain village Cloudcroft - a great place for a family to cool down in while their pilot is soaring in big desert thermals. No fees are charged for this event - just show up and fly! (We'll accept donations, but we're not charging for this.) If you'd like any information about it, please contact me, Robin Hastings, at 575-541-5744 or by email at RNHastings@zianet.com Tell your flying friends about it, and we'll hope to see you there in May!

Hey, everyone! The weather forecast for the Memorial Day Fly-In next week looks great - light to moderate southwest winds, clear skies, and highs about 85 to 90 degrees in Alamogordo. Come on out and fly!
