Mirko sent me this YouTube link to a great video of formation DSing at Grant’s Pass. Reminds me of South Dakota formation sessions. Can’t wait for spring! Check it out!
Our friend Mike Williams, who attended our WeaselFest event last April, has an impressive blog about the Pompano Beach Slope here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=5545 Check it out
Don’t worry folks! The old slopeflyer.com is still on the server and will be for some time. The eventual plan is to migrate all the info to the new site but, for obvious reasons that is going to take a while. Meanwhile visit old slopeflyer.com here!

There are, at my last count, 62 applications in the Apps section of the iTunes store for the iPhone that have something to do with weather. 40 of them cost something. While I think some of the paid apps have merit, I figured that I would work through the free apps first to see if […]
Gary found our site on a Google search and he thought it would be nice if we could get Cornwalls slopes more exposure! Theyve created a web site that allows tourists or locals to find out what slopes are available in Cornwall (there are quite a few!) So check this out! (more…)
