Monthly skills events

Hi everyone, last year I talked about holding evening skills building events to go along with our monthly soaring events. The goal of these new events will be to have a time separate from the Saturday events to work on soaring skills. This would be a perfect time to work on hi-start of winch launching skills for those of you wanting to learn how to use them. Landing skills can be worked on, thermal detection can be improved upon, sailplane tuning can be done. These evening events would also be a fantastic time for new soaring pilots to come out and get help with their new sailplanes.

My plan is to focus on a specific soaring skill each evening but you are not obligated to work on only that skill. Feel free to work on whatever skills you want to or simply join us for some peaceful evening soaring. Thermals are weaker in the evenings but so are the winds so this makes for a perfect time to fine tune your sailplane. I have not decided on a particular evening yet but I will be pinning that down soon. I will post the announcement here and I will also be sending out an email announcement for those of not checking the website.
