2019 Team Practice Schedule

We will be having a full team practice on the weekend of June 22, 23 in Rhode Island. The sod farms that the RISC club files on are great for F3b practice. Plenty of open space for flying. The team had a good practice session in 2017 at the same site.

A big thank you to all the northeast soaring pilots and especially Maarten and Alex and the rest of the RISC club for hosting our event on the sod farm. It was well worth the trip and traffic on I95.

The weekend in RI turned out great. It was constant rain at home in NJ the week before and fortunately RI didn’t get swamped with the same around of rain. We only a brief interruption for mowing on Saturday and a few drops of rain in the afternoon. It did give us an opportunity for a group photo shoot.

The turnout was great with helpers and pilots from the northeast soaring community. While flying speed practice on Saturday, there were enough extra helpers to keep up with line retrieval. Sunday was another good turnout for help for a little speed then mostly distance flying.

We also picked up a some nice contributions to the help fund the teams trip to the Czech Republic in early August. We still have to raise some more funds to cover all the expenses of getting the team and equipment to the Worlds.
