September Fest and Photos

We’re putting together an awesome weekend for September Fest. September Fest will take place September 17-19th. This is a great lead in to Team Challenge (starts September 19th). Come a couple days early to fly with us, or stay a couple of days later to fly the Sequatchie Valley.

Here’s what we know so far…

Days to be filled with fun flying competitions for all skill levels. We plan on including: spot landing contests, fish bowl race (all turnpoints within sight of launch), coolest video, best launch, duration, xc, and bomb drops.

Open Mic night complete with food (provided by Shawn) and beverages. This is a super fun event. For those interested in participating, email Stacy Murdoch at

Weekend Events

We’ve got a nice weather outlook for the next couple of days. Friday N to NW 4-8 mph. Saturday looks W to NW, to light and variable.

We also have several events planned:

Friday July 31st, 6:30pm Women’s Clothing Swap (info from Lia):

Hi Everyone,

We are having a Women’s Clothing Swap this Friday, August 30 beginning at 6:30pm at the LZ Pavillion. In the past, this has been a fun event where everyone brings their gently used clothes and passes them on. All of the clothes that are left over will be donated to the local Womens Shelter.

Wine & music will be provided and, if you’d like, feel free to bring a finger food. Clothing swaps have always been a fun event that also supports other local women. So, go through your closests and join us on Friday!

Take care,
Lia Harrell

Sunday, August 2, 1pm FREE Clinic

Aerotow Clinic: Clinic on aerotow equipment, how to use it, and aerotow techniques. Meet at the tow pavillion. Taught by Gordon Cayce.

Family of Flyers

All of the Webster Family recently completed their training with us. That means mom Bobbie, dad Robert, and their kids Carl and Morgan all had their first solo flights. We enjoyed having them and they had a blast! Here’s what they had to say:


I just wanted to send a quick note thanking EVERYONE on the staff for two GREAT weeks of flying. If it werent for the efforts and dedication of the entire staff, which included many above and beyond efforts, none of us would have had the opportunity to solo! We truly appreciate your dedication, professionalism, and desire to pass on your love of hang gliding! We cannot wait to get back!

Thanks again for everything!
