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. 

Another CSS RRG Fundraising Challenge to Members!


Hey Gang,

We received another request from a club member today to help in the USHPA drive to raise funds to establish an RRG for insurance purposes. As you know, this is absolutely necessary in keeping many of our flying sites open, due to the requirements of the land owners.

Our member would like to remain "ANONYMOUS", but would be willing to donate up to $1,000 (TOTAL) in matched funds, from other CSS members.

Starting from today. 

Meet & Greet with Martin Palmaz - Jan 16

Martin Palmaz (USHPA Executive Director) will be stopping by from 11:30 - 1:00 on the 16th. He would like to talk with us, answer any questions, and get our feedback regarding USHPA & Insurance issues. ​

Yes, this is a big deal. If we do not reach the, Free Flight Forever self insurance fund raising goals and maintain insurance coverage, we will likely lose our ability to fly many of our Southern California sites.


750 Sculpting


While some of us took advantage of the short onshore window to get some airtime today, club president Jeff Boehler was at the 750 launch smoothing the edge and making it a little more paraglider-friendly.  At least somebody does some actual work around here ;)

Thanks, Jeff!
