Friends of the Cross Country Ranch- April 18th

Many people have been asking me what to do around the place to get ready for the Demo Days. I hope that you have heard the great news that Owen and his crew have finished the shade structure at the pond (1 year, 1 month, 1 week and 1 day in the making). If you or your family have ever used the Ranch facilities (including the pond) I thought it would be nice to meet around 9:30am Saturday the 18th with shovels, weed whackers, rakes etc. to do some clean up of the weeds and debris around the Ranch.

Hi guys, the SoCal XC League is underway for 2015.  Like last year we will have two leagues, the Sprint for pilots new to XC or task flying (must have 40hrs and EN-B wing or lower) and the XC league for more senior pilots (80 hrs or more required).  The first event will be this weekend at Marshall.  On Sunday morning I will be doing a task clinic which helps bootstrap people with the knowledge they need to use their instruments for cross country and task flying.  If you want to participate:
