SoCal XC League & XC Task Clinic!

Postby AaronColby » Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:25 am

Hi guys, I presented last week some new information about up coming things for the SoCal XC League and here they are again for those that missed it.

This year there will be two leagues, the XC league designed for intermediate to advanced XC pilots and the Sprint league designed for pilots just getting into XC flying. The new Sprint league is aimed at high-end P2s (though site restrictions may apply) and low end P3s that want to practice flying XC tasks with minimal amounts of stress. To be eligible for the Sprint league you must be flying an EN-B glider or lower. Check out the rules section of the SoCal site for all the details. Registration for both leageus is now open here:

Secondly I will be running XC Task Clinics that are aimed at bootstrapping individuals who have never flown a task before with the information they need. This clinic may be useful for both Sprint and XC league participants since the talks will be centered around task specific information. The XC clinic will be about 3 hours in the morning and in the afternoon we will go up to launch and fly an actual Sprint task. Clinic dates are Saturday, March 15th and Saturday, May 24th. These two clinics will offer identical information. Cost is $50 which includes ride to launch, retrieve and sprint task fee but not site dues. If the weather on the Saturday is not good then we will try to roll it over to Sunday. Minimum 3 attendees for the clinic to occur otherwise it will just be a Sprint task with no clinic. More details available here:

Registration is now open for the XC Task Clinic:

Finally, we'll be having a Kick off party for the league on Saturday, March 15th at Marshall. This will coincide with the first XC Task Clinic in the morning and the first Sprint Task in the afternoon. Come on out and meet some new friends and share in some food and drink afterwards!

The first XC League event will be the following weekend, March 22-23, in Santa Barbara if the weather holds. If not we will have Kagel and Marshall as alternate sites. I hope to see as many talented SB XC pilots out to represent as possible!

Poor XC Weather 3/22-23

I sent Aaron Price an email this morning recommending that he postpone this weekend's So Cal League Meet do to the wide spread marine inversion which translates in to poor XC conditions at the lower altitudes.
