Wisconsin Slope Flyers Rejoice! We Have a New Slope Site in Southeast Wisconsin
Posted by Greg Smith on Oct 11, 2007, 22:43

The long wait is over. Things turned out a bit differently than we'd originally planned but our friends and fellow club members at AstroWings of Wisconsin helped us finally gain access to one of our local "Holy Grail" slope spots. Thanks to AstroWings, and especially Roger Zahn, as well as the folks at Waste Management for this opportunity.

On Saturday, October 6th Mirko, Greg and Tracy made a preliminary venture to the Omega Hills Waste Management site in Germantown, Wisconsin for some test flying of what promises to be a great venue for slope soaring action in Southeast Wisconsin. On this particular day the wind was about as poor a direction (SW) as we could have and we still had many flights of 10-15 minutes. I had on at least 20 minutes. Remember this was in the least favorable wind direction!

For those of you who have been looking forward to flying at Omega hills please mark your calendars for Sunday, October 21st at Noon. We will meet at the Omega Hills gate on County Line Rd. and be given an orientation by the site manager outlining the few rules that we need to be aware of. After that we will be free to fly!

If you will be attending the orientation please RSVP I need to get a head count for the site manager.

Also, please note, to fly at this site you will need to be an AMA member and an AstroWings of Wisconsin member too. I will have membership applications for AstroWings at the site. In addition, if you can't make the orientation, you'll need to go with a member who has previously been to the site and can show you the ropes.

FYI, this has been over 5 years in the making and we are really looking forward to making this relationship work. Your help as responsible pilots and people will be greatly appreciated!
