Paragliders - September 2015

It was an amazing week of activities and our 4x4 Club stepped up to the plate to help out. The following members pitched in: Jerry, John H., John McV.,John S., Greg. Jack, George, Tim, Char, Pat W., Tom, Raul, Debbie H. and Mike J. (hope I did not miss anybody). Along with others we helped to shuttled the pilots to the Bishop hilltop launch site each day then spread out to find the pilots that were unsuccessful in getting to the final landing site. About 100 pilots participated and each day approximately 85 failed to make it to the goal. On one day they flew from Bishop to Benton, turned the corner and went to Lee Vining. There were pilots scattered throughout the countryside and it made for a long day.

The paragliders are a great group of people involved in a wild sport (kind of like us). It was a lot of fun and we got a lot more familiar with our GPS units.

Kari, from the paragliders group, came to our meeting last night and thanked us for helping out a couple weeks ago with the National Competition. She gave us a thank you card, a case of beer and a CHECK FOR $500 ( I also got two hugs). WOW that was very nice! It turned out to be a lot of fun and very educational as we helped them to their launch point and then retrieved them from many various locations. A big THANK YOU goes to all the club members that helped out, and there were a lot of them.
