Halloween and Fish Bowl Race!

Hi everyone! We sure do have an exciting week ahead of us! The Halloween party is soon upon us. SO MUCH FUN! An amazing band out of Birmingham, delicious food, costume contest with cash prizes, and adult beverages. Saturday October 27. $10…flight park members, students, friends and family welcome. In addition, and even more exciting, we are having a hang gliding race. This will be a fish bowl race, where the entire race is confined to our immediate area. Spectators and other racers will be able to view the entire course from launch, and possibly from the LZ.. The actual turn points and goals of the race will not be determined until the morning of the 27th. We want to match the race to the conditions of the day. There will be no entrance fee. There will be small prizes. You will not get your picture on the cover of Sports Illustrated if you win. You will have a good time and you will rub elbows with some of the greatest pilots in the world. The course line will be drawn out so there will be a convenient and big LZ. within reach of the entire course. You must be a soaring pilot to compete. The turn points will be judged on an honor system. If you declare you reached a turn point, then we believe you, no questions asked. Certain details to be determined the day of the race by the race director and safety director. We need to have an idea how many people will be participating, please send an email to Dan,, to register. See you soon!
