Several gliding events are planned for Southern Ontario this summer:
SOSA Basic Country-Country Clinic: Monday July 27th to Friday July 31st
Ontario Provincial Soaring Championships: Friday September 4th to Monday September 7th
To be held at SOSA Gliding Club near Rockton, ON. Friday, September 4th is a practice day.
The website for the 2015 Canadian National Soaring Championships is now live at http://2015canadiannationalsoaringcontest.ca/. The website provides additional information on the contest and also provides instructions for registration. Any pilots that registered prior to February 28 will need to re-register as the forwarding e-mail address was incorrect which prevent registrations from being received.
Two years ago, the FAI put together a special committee to examine woman in air sports and explore ways to increase female membership in air sports. The committee focused specifically on woman in gliding, which is fortunate for us and they put together a white paper to share the results of their research. The white paper shares insight and experience from Canada with York Soaring receiving an honorable mention. The white paper is an excellent read and all clubs could benefit from the information contained in the white paper. The white paper has been posted on the SAC website can be downloaded from the following link.
The SAC Board would be interested in hearing from individuals that would have an interest in taking on the editing duties of SAC website. Tasks would include keeping content fresh and up to date by seeking out interesting articles and news, keeping the documents in order and updating links or other information that requires updating over time. The web editor would also work to build new content for the website over time and would also involve keeping the SAC twitter feed churning with interesting content.
No specific skills are required other than proficiency with a computer and keenness to learn as much of the technical aspects can be learned by an individual with a certain amount of training and hands on work.
