    Once the flying is done (sometime around 6:00 pm.) There will be plenty of food and drinks in the best Oktoberfest tradition.Dinner Menu: B-Q Chicken Quarters, Bratwurst, Hot German Potato Salad, Apple Sauce, Sauerkraut, Dinner Rolls & Butter, Apple Cake, After Dinner Mints, Pumpkin Bread, Beverages: Soda & Water, Adult Beverages, Coffee & Hot Apple Cider


    If you plan on spending the evening in the bunkhouse, reservations are also strongly recommended.

    We hope you can join us.

    $20 after Wednesday

    Please RSVP
    (530) 473-5600 or noelle@williamssoaring.com
    or sign up in the office.


    2012 Oktoberfest General Information & Rules

    1. Because this contest is a recreational event, it will be loosely divided into two classes (Sports & Open) based on pilot experience rather than glider design and pilots will be allowed to select the class that they feel is appropriate. An informal committee of two ( Rex Mayes and Peter Kelly) will review the class selected by each pilot to insure it is appropriate class for his competition and cross country experience.

    2. The Sports class is intended for pilots with little or no prior competition experience. The Open class is intended for pilots who have Competition or cross country experience that will allow them to complete a significantly more ambitious task than the Sports class.

    3. All pilots must sign in & declare class prior to the conclusion of pilots meeting.

    4. Informal Launch.

    6. No re-lites allowed until after the last glider has been launched.

    7. The task will open as soon as the first glider has launched.

    8. Task will be GPS verified. The winner must submit a flight log. The Landing Card (revised for accuracy) and the Flight Log will be published in graphic form on a web page linked to the WSC pages. No flight log, no winner.

    9. Pilots will keep their own start/finish times on the honor system.

    10. A start gate will be announced at the pilots meeting.

    11. A SSA Handicap will be applied to each achieved speed prior to computing finish position.

    12. Landouts are the responsibility of the individual pilot and crew. Williams Soaring Center will support aero retrieves as their schedule and outlanding locations permit.

    13. Weak links are the responsibility of the individual pilot. Williams Soaring Center uses 1200 LB test rope.

    14. A list of possible turnpoints is available. Turnpoints must be selected from the current TP list - as published on the internet

    15. Williams Soaring Center's Policy, as published in December 16, 2008, should be reviewed prior to flight operations. See the policies under "Pilot Info" on the Williams home page ( http://www.williamssoaring.com/pilot_info.htm )

    Oktoberfest is coming - something to look forward to -

    Hey! Bob Ireland is coming down from Montague! It will be great to see him - and hear about the Montague operation.
    We have a lot to celebrate/catch up on this Oktoberfest.

    Some things that come to mind...
    Ben Mayes has "launched" and will be rejoining us after a few months of college (You go guy!!!)
    The Montague/Roher airport is "launched" and has been through it's first soaring season.
    Pilots have earned new ratings and launched into new personal and professional realms of possiblity.
    Pilots are returning from their contest flying, summer safaries, and adventures.
    Many of us are now flying with FLARM in the Mendo's and all over the country.
    WSC continues to improve the South Hangar where we gather for our events, and I believe it now has central A/C and heating (WOW - thanks for the great place for community events!)

    It is times like this when I really miss Tom Jue's newsletter - he had an artistic and articulate way of keeping us informed on the highlights in the community.

    Yes - lots to catch up on - Thanks to all at WSC that make the Oktoberfest happen each year.
