It may depend on the conditions, but I think that's the current plan. It might be good to contact someone from the club directly (I'm in San Diego). I might be able to get you a phone number if you need it. Just post or send me a PM.

Have fun!!

Could you share which app they are using and what the group name is?

I hope they had a good local club fly in because it doesn't sound like their way of getting the word out goes beyond their click.

The XC Bohl in Texas was awesome. 8hrs of airtime myself in 3 days 45 miles, 30 miles, and a nice 60 miler to declared goal 8-)

Hi Nate, they use GroupMe but you have to have an invite into the group. On their web page they have a few names of people who can help with that.

Unfortunately most of the weekend was blown out. I did get to get my Jeep up the mountain which was good. Was wanting to check it out to see if I even could. Very cool place, was a shame it was blown out, even though I only hold an H1 and wouldn’t have been able to take advantage anyways. I may have gotten to meet more people though which is what I need to do to accelerate forward in this.

Thank you! I'll connect with GroupMe as it looks like the days of this sub-forum are sadly over.

Is there talk of a new LZ if Cox goes away? Dry Canyon is such an epic site. In addition to Dry Canyon, hopefully the Guads happen again. I love it when that comes together. Memorial Day at Dry is also an adventure.

Glad to hear the road was climbable.

Robin was a tremendous supporter of this RGSA club forum here on the U.S. Hawks. His "Weekend Weather" posts were a regular heartbeat for your club. It's not clear if anyone else in the RGSA will step up to fill that gap.

The U.S. Hawks gives forum space to chapters so that local issues and events can get national attention. I know that several people from other regions have participated in RGSA events because they found out about them through the U.S. Hawks forum.

If USHPA were doing its job, they would also be hosting club forums through their national web site. But USHPA fears the power that such a national platform would give to its members.

The future of this forum is up to you. The U.S. Hawks is dedicated to "Promote, Protect, and Serve Recreational Hang Gliding" as stated in our mission and logo. We honor our Chapters and give them the final say on content and membership. You won't get that on Facebook, Twitter, GroupMe or USHPA. Just ask Donald Trump how he would feel if he were an RGSA member and if all RGSA communications were under the thumb of Facebook and Twitter. :shock:

P.S. I just went to the GroupMe.com web site and clicked on their "Terms" in the footer. Any guess where that took me? Here's a hint:
