I just wanted to give this topic a boost since Ian just signed up with the U.S. Hawks. Ian was a friend of Greg's and Ian is featured around 3 minutes and 24 seconds into this video:

Greg Dewolf, Ian Huss and Cindy Drodza, are largely responsible for all my effort and expense in hang gliding as I happened to be in Salt Lake, Point of the Mountain, back in the 80's, when they flew the Continental USA, west to east, via Atol.
Decided to buy an Atol system for the hg community of KC, on the drive home.
Got to fly with Ian and Cindy a few times later, on their rig, and I believe they towed on our rig too. My partner was Cliff Wilson in the tow rig.

Thanks Warren for adding to Greg's history of contributions to hang gliding.

I met Greg briefly, when he landed one day. Didn't know much about him other than he made "goose bumps" when he flew that day. For me "goose bumps" were common place at Town Park LZ. These guys made hang gliders truly something to see. We were a small group of spectators those days at 8,745, but Greg and his fellow aeronauts (thank you so much Luigi) made us all feel alive.
Like the barn stormers of yore, you will never be forgotten, but you live free forever now somewhere over the rainbow.

Thanks y'all for remembering again why this man is at the core of US.

We're in good hands.
