The training hill sits vacant almost every evening. Judging by that, it seems pilots are satisfied with their level of competence given the consistently pilot-friendly launch and landing conditions at this site. Does it take a clinic to compel pilots to show up to better their fundamentals? Unfortunately, the answer may be yes. Ask pilots who consistently launch and land well what methods they employed to get consistency. Guess what they’ll say. Lots of practice. Grab a beginner glider and in smooth evening conditions, practice. Tim or I can gator up the hill. By late eve, the winds usually die down to almost nil and theres your low/no conditions to work in.
