Seminole 5/1 to 5/10.

Something has changed with the SSA and the announcement of National events is dribbling out. For 2018, Sports, 18 and Club has been announced. Nothing about 15, Sports and Open.

Problem with getting venues? IMHO the SSA contest scene is sinking fast. Sad, sad sad

Dave,

Just look at the Racing Calendar on the SSA website. Seminole is happy to host the 18 Meter Nationals. We also would not compete with Bermuda High in any contest that they would like to host. Frank and Jayne do a phenomenal job of hosting contests. They are always well attended and well run. We love hosting the Seniors every year to kick off the competitive season. Last year we did the FAI Sailplane Grand Prix that you also participated in, and everyone seemed to have a great time so we offered to do it again! The 18 Meter Nationals didn't have a home so we offered to host it. That way, if you had a 15/18 meter ship you could fly the Seniors, SGP and the Nationals at the same site. Leave your car and ship in Orlando and fly with us. Or if you are a real gluten for punishment, also enjoy the hospitality of Rhonda and Al Tyler and fly the Region 5 North contest at Perry in April!! If there is a heaven for glider pilots, 9 March thru 10 May will come close. Thanks for all the support you have given us Dave, and I've got your old parking spot reserved.

Sincerely,
Rich Owen
Vice President

Thanks Rich, sorry I missed it when I last looked.
Do you have dates for the Seniors and Grand Prix?
Those are not currently listed on the SSA web site.
Thanks again,
Best Regards, Dave "YO"

The Seniors dates are March 9-16. The Sailplane Gran Prix starts approximately 8 days after the Seniors ends. Sean Fidler knows the dates. Flew your SN-10B at the Standard Class Nationals. Intuitive and superb information. Great piece of equipment!
