Just like any other hang glider pilot, BobK should be allowed to fly.
His flight is nothing special but it is the law.
We can all fly hang gliders. It is our right under law.
You USHPA hang glider pilots who suppose otherwise:  You are a disgrace!
You are destroying our sport of hang gliding with your ignorance.

Forcing a confrontation between the right of pilots to fly under FAR 103 and the inept and illegal authoritarian stance of the USHPA is incredibly STUPID and self-destructive.
I cannot believe you are doing this.
Stop it now.
Otherwise:  You cannot represent us any longer.
It would be better for all if you left the sport and went to paragliding.
You don't belong here.
What are you doing here?
Get out.

That was my Falcon 195. Point of the Mountain is a great site. We've had two nice flying days so far. More to come. :D

sg just deleted a photo I posted of the POTM flight by BobK.
And sg CLOSED the thread called
I CAN NOT KEEP QUIET ANY LONGER.#402670

sg deleted my post just before closing the topic thread. My post simply thanked Logan and others for keeping recreational hang gliding healthy. I showed Bob flying at POTM as non-ORG flight. I did not name Bob. But sg somehow just could not even take having a photo of an excellent pilot and excellent leader show up on the sg forum. Jack Axaopoulos alias "sg" What a shame. sg had a topic thread that was successful and then he just now CLOSED the topic while deleting an image of a great moment in recreational hang gliding: the opening of POTM to non-ORG-non_MGFetc. Jack, consider putting the photo back up and my easy post; you are else confirming deep emptiness to your forum under your control. Get out of bed with MGF! sg, you have a chance to be a part of the great new era of open recreational hang gliding; snuffing POTM fact from full view will stand as a turning point in your own relevance; no self-respecting hang glider pilot will be able in justice to support your forum. Which way are your going, sg? Up in principles or down to the dirt?

BobK is a benign growth to recreational hang gliding; he is part of a growing group who are building on FAR 103, states' recreational statutes, responsible simplifications, transparency, self-regulation, equity in recreation for HG.
================================= HERE IS THE PHOTO THAT sg deleted just before closing the topic thread:

Joe, the little baby hang glider pilots need their Mommys to tell them what cookies to eat
and to slap their hands if they try to eat one Mommy doesn't like.
This keeps them from getting too fat and looking out the windows.
There's bees and cars out there. And cheeseburgers and beer! Mommys protect babies from themselves.

sg, Jack A., in a new thread started by Logan:
A person posted a question about what DNR and NPS meant.
I posted a pilot answer and a photo of an unnamed pilot.
And I put one sentence:

And AGAIN sg removed my post.
Then MGF answered as I did about the DNR and NPS meaning;
but sg Jack A. did not delete MGF's post.
Jack A. sg apparently cannot stand an unnamed pilot that looks like BobK.
sg gave me a warning; I answered sg again that I am not a proxy for BobK.
I also encouraged sg to respect hang glider history's important moments and not delete such from his forum.
I suggested that he try posting the photo he deleted in order to see how it feels. He might be surprised how right and good it would feel to respect hang glider history.
