Another New Solo at SOSA in 2006!

Is it really possible to solo this late in the year? Just ask Justin Allport who flew his first and second solo's yesterday. Congratulations to Justin on this big step in a lifetime of challenges that soaring has to offer.

In total we flew 11 flights on the 10th of November. Scott Hube, who was driving along highway 8, noticed the flying and stopped in just in time to get the last flight of the day. The air was perfectly smooth, and Scott remarked that he had never flown in air so smooth before. In fact he just had to do the "look ma, no hands" routine.

Despite the wet weather lately, it is still possible to do some flying before the end of the year. If we can get a few days of drying for the runways, we can keep flying until the runway is buried in snow.

Also don't forget the annual New Years day get together at the clubhouse starting around 10 am on the 1st of Jan!
