UPDATE: The San Bernardino National Forest will be closed until September 22nd, 2021. The NFS extended the closure today.
UPDATE: Owen has given us permission to use the 350 launch during the closure. The launch is located on his land, not the NF. You can get a fun little sledder from up there, but be aware that if you manage to bench up, get a longer flight, and you land out in the NF, it’s gonna look really bad. Please don’t abuse the privilege.
Stan sent me a couple of progress pics, for the curious.

We’ve raised close to $18,000 so far, but more will be needed to complete all three phases. 🙏
Is this your bottle? I’m going to put in on top of the fridge inside the shade structure.
I’ve been taking some progress photos on weekends. A lot has been done so far. Thank you all for doing the hard work! 🙏
Here’s a link to where you can see the total raised so far: Shade Structure Donations. Looks like we’ve raised over $15,000 so far.
There’s an extra $1,300 cash raised by Nacho’s BBQ that’s not included in the total amount on that page. I’ll also keep donating as much as I can, when I can.

This is happening today! Check out this article for details. The XC Crestline Classic
Feel free to show up at the LZ before noon and you’ll find plenty of HG pilots to give you an intro. Dan is one of our HG instructors. If you’d like you can chat with him about our site. Here’s his website: http://www.flycrestline.com/
Thank you for the amazing food, Gene & Sandy, and thank you to Kathy, Mary, Heather and Dave for helping out & serving us! We had a great time. 🙌🏻❤️April 19, 2021 at 2:29 PM in reply to: Who’s in favor of having a launch and landing clinic? #12013
It’s definitely a great way to get better and fine tune one’s launches and landings! I’d highly recommend getting someone to record your launch and landing and then go over it with an instructor.
For example I was in complete denial that I was jumping on some of my launches, until I saw myself doing it on video. It didn’t -feel- like a jump, but it sure looked like one! While an instructor can try to argue with their students about what did or didn’t happen on launch, video doesn’t lie.
So ya,… great idea. Open yourself up to a detailed critique and don’t get offended by someone trying to help you. We all make mistakes, nobody is perfect, so try not to feel hurt by it. Use it to get better!April 19, 2021 at 8:41 AM in reply to: Who’s in favor of having a launch and landing clinic? #12007
