Below is gory detail from the first post on the forum.

The Torrey Pines Gulls Club of San Diego is proud to announce the schedule for the monthly DLG Series for 2015.
It will be officially called the “2015 Torrey Pines Gulls DLG Clinic Series” and will be a monthly event on Saturdays with the intent of building your DLG skills, mingling with the best pilots around, getting exposed to the F3K contest formats, and most of all to have fun!

The Who
All pilots of all levels from anywhere are welcome to come fly. You just need an official AMA membership and you are in! Don’t miss your chance to have experienced pilots call and time for you, or pass on your experience to new pilots with the growing passion for DLG! Don’t be disuaded if you don’t have the latest and greatest equipment. As long as it is safe to fly, come and huck it!

The Contest Format
We know that everyone is busy, so we have decided to make these events half day events (although we are open to make them longer if there is enough demand). We will generally fly 6 rounds starting in the morning and ending in the middle of the day. This makes it so the whole Saturday isn’t killed, and you have some bargaining power with your other habits in life…

2014 F3K rules will be used to score the event and it will be officially sanctioned by the AMA as well as counted for official F3K Team selection qualification. Two classes will be scored (Sportsman and Open), so beginner levels can compete with each other! Six rounds will allow for one drop for the contest results. The official CD will determine the task list.

The Clinics
At some point in between rounds we will have clinical talks and advice given by top pilots attending on a variety of topics including launch techniques and critiques, strategies, rules clarifications, or any other subjects that come up!

Its not often that you can get quality time picking the brains of top present, past and future Team USA pilots, so don’t be scared, the community is awesome!

The Cost
The events will have a fee of $10 for non-TPG members, and $5 for TPG members. This fee structure is new in 2015 to show that the club is committed to providing value to their members. Please consider becoming a member of the largest Soaring club in the states we know of!

The Series
The club has generously offered to award year end trophies for the series champions. The series will be counted as your best 6 events out of the 11 events.
