Crestline Soaring Society
The Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club for San Bernardino, CA, USA
The CSS is a non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) which exists to serve the foot-launched flying community in the San Bernardino Mountains - Crestline & Marshall Peak in particular - and Southern California and beyond in general.
We encourage you to come and be a part of one of the premier flying sites the world has to offer.
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.
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.
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 ;)

Hey Everyone, it's that time of year again to hold our annual elections.
We have a Write-Iin space for each office on the ballot (links below) that you will be able to print & mail in.
This ballot is as follows, these people having agreed to take these offices:
I would like to start a CSS FFF insurance capital donation pool.
It is an exceptionally worthy cause. I'll pony up 500 bucks to start it off.
Donate to CSS, then CSS will in turn donate the funds toward the FFF campaign.
It is once again the season of giving and CSS is partnering with the San Bernardino City/County Fire Department (SBCFD) for the Christmas annual toy drive. Any and all CSS members, family and friends interested in participating are asked to donate a toy for a child between 4 - 16 years old. Toys must be delivered to AJX no later than Wednesday, December 9th to ensure SBFD receives them timely.
Just a FYI- San Bernardino Airport is having an airshow this coming Saturday and Sunday.
The TRF does not reach AJX
