greg and his novaI started R/C soaring in 1980, when I moved to Los Gatos, CA. I had a buddy in high school who got me into it. I spent several years flying with the South Bay Soaring Society mostly sloping at Sunset Beach, Coyote Hills and Davenport.

I have been back in to flying for several years now after about a 15 year lull. I had always flown slope in Northern California and thought all my planes (a Rich Spicer Nova (before his RnR days) was my favorite) were useless when I moved to the Midwest (Milwaukee, WI). HLGs piqued my R/C interest again but my heart yearned for the slope, a 30mph wind and a ballasted rocket.

I noticed that when the wind is coming out of the east, the bluffs along Lake Michigan can be a pretty good substitute for the cliffs at Sunset Beach or the site at Davenport in NoCal and so I am back on the hills!

If you give a hoot you can learn more about me by reading my blog at: http://www.schmenzer.com

If you have a hankering for a good quality web presence at a reasonable price check out my biz site: http://www.gtdesign.net

Wow! Redoing this page brought back memories of NoCal slope soaring. Hope to make it here again soon!
