Feb 12 @ 8:45 am

To all thermal duration pilots Torrey Pines Gulls will hosting the monthly contest on

 

February 12, 2017, Sunday at the Encinitas Field. The field is in great condition just mowed, it looks like a park.

Cost: $5.00 for club members and $10.00 for nonmembers, so join the club and save money this year!

 

Rain event for the Encinitas Field is as follows:

If it rains more than ¼ inch 5 days before the event we are unable to use the field due to our lease agreement with the County of San Diego. They require a drying out time of 5 days with no rain.

If it is under ¼ inch of rain we can use the field.

 

The CD can move the event to Poway if they desire, due to rain event in Encinitas.

 

First flight is at 9:00 am hope to be done by 12:00 noon

 

It is a sanctioned event.
