Since my first love is sailplanes, thought I would kick off the glider forum with some pics from the past!










Please, feel free to comment or share your pics!

Lets go flying!

Greetings.

I'm "DCS" from the much-loved and soon-to-be-missed BayRC.

BIG thanks to Joey, Ray and Allen for the hard work to put together this new community.

I'm looking forward to BayRC.net continuing the BayRC tradition.

Ciao.

Big Al.... Hey man, good to be here on Bay RC... When I clicked on your message to the group, it appeared to have 4 pictures embedded in your email. To me, they just show up as little ? marks and they don't open. Are they just Old links that don't work or am I doing something wrong.

Thanks Man.... I'm trying to locate my old White Trash sailplane that Stu Horton built when he was a kid. After I find that one, I'm going to try to locate my old Grand Esprit. I sold the Grand to SBSS member Mike Mitchel back in the day....1976 or so. Can't seem to find some of these guys and I have NO idea who bought my White Trash. Could you check my posting in "Glider Talk" to see if I did it right?
Thanks Al !!
Love the site!

Hi Weav,
For SBSS try www.rcgroups.com/south-bay-soaring-society-427/ . That is SBSS builtin board. I looked at a club roster and did not see Mike's name.

Thanks Tim.... I really didn't expect to find Mike on any current roster. It's going to take someone that flew with us back in the 70's to figure this one out. The days of Ralph Rena, Bob Nelson, Jon Lowe, Ken Willard, Tom Christian, Chris or Curt Christen, Gerry Arana, Ted Kafer........and the list goes on. SBSS was REALLY very active during the infancy of RC Soaring and we were major players in the growth of the technologies in Soaring as well as a good portion of the soul. Mike Burke, Joe Newland, Lynsel Miller, Tom Overton and it just blows me away how many I can remember ...And sadly how many have "Moved On" to bigger Lift. Gerry Wolfram, Hugh Stock and yes, Jack Alten & sons.....

So if ANYONE out there knows how to get a hold of Mike Mitchell, let em know I'm trying to find him. He ended up being a VERY fast slope racer and very competitive at the RCM Trophy races.....Back when we really raced each other instead of one plane at a time.
Gee Whiz... and this all started out as a search for my White Trash Glider..... Come on you guys... :) Get out there and rattle the bushes. That plane has still got to be in the area.... Have Fun!!
Nice to be a poster on this group's forum finally.....
