Stepping Down


CSS Members,

I am stepping down as President of the Crestline Soaring Society.  New circumstances at work have made it impossible for me to give this job the attention that it deserves. You are in very capable hands with the other board members who will continue to ensure we have a safe and fun place to fly and keep our airpark, as my good friend Randy likes to say, the friendliest LZ on earth.

Internet WX Forecasting Class


Next Saturday, Mar 5 at the shade structure 9am. I will bring a large screen TV and computer to conduct a weather forecasting class.  Want to know a week ahead of time when the big days are coming? Like the old adage says, "90% of the game is just showing up". Knowing when to show up is 10x more valuable. Spot the good days, the great days, the best day of the year and the 'too good' days of late summer.  Free, like a great soaring day, to whomever shows up!




At the request of and in cooperation with the Pala Roberts Ranch:
All Palomar Launches and LZs will be closed all Day Monday February 22nd 2016.
There will be intensive Helicopter Spraying activities at the Pala Roberts Ranch and surrounding Orchards between Launch and the LZ Using the Main LZ as an LZ.…/palomar-tfr-monday-2-22-16

Storage Bins


CSS Members,

I regret that I have to inform you that someone has broken into our storage bins. Property was removed from the bins and left around the parking lot and the LZ grass.  It appears the vandals were interrupted in the middle of their mischief and left in a hurry because they also abandoned the bolt cutters that were used to break into the bins.  It does not look like any gliders were taken but that will have to be confirmed by our members. Thank you to Jeff Bohler for calling the police, filling out a police report and helping them with their initial investigation.
