What the Heck is Up at slopeflyer.com? or 2008 year in review!
Posted by Greg on Jan 5, 2009, 13:58
No doubt many of you have noticed a fairly sparse update schedule for the past few months. Rest assured that after 10 years of running and hosting this site that I am not going anywhere but I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone. Get a post going and give you all an update on what is happening here at slopeflyer.com.



iPhone Weather Apps for Slope Soaring Pilots
Posted by Greg Smith on Dec 23, 2008, 13:43
There are, at my last count, 62 applications in the Apps section of the iTunes store for the iPhone that have something to do with weather. 40 of them cost something. While I think some of the paid apps have merit, I figured that I would work through the free apps first to see if I could find one that does what I need so all listed here are either free from the App Store or websites with iPhone specific formatting.

Midwest WeaselFest 2008 Becoming a Reality!
Posted by Greg Smith on Mar 7, 2008, 14:00
It has been a long, cold, snowy winter here in Wisconsin. We haven't been out flying since January 1st but spring is on the horizon and thoughts of a Midwest version of WeaselFest are in the air.

There is a thread at RCGroups about the event to be held April 19th and 20th, 2008 in Milwaukee.
