2019 Open Class and 18 Meter Class Nationals - Day 5 Post Launch

Task Alpha (3:45 TAT) opened at 13:50. 

We are enjoying a classic contest in Hobbs through the work of the SSA, the local clubs and volunteers. The ramp at Hobbs is an enormous 90 acres of concrete. The associated runways make for a spectacular facility. But the industrial airport is aging and needs our help. Grass, trees and dirt are starting to overrun the airport. Two years ago the informal Hobbs Maintenance Fund was created to help fund needed maintenance.  Local rancher and soaring club member Dale Briscoe has spent countless hours knocking back the grass on the ramp. A long term plan is needed to preserve this irreplaceable resource. An informal organization is coming together to form better connections with the City and other stake holders to make the maintenance of Industrial a priority.  Stay tuned for future developments.  Questions? contact John Seaborn.   

Please look at the 3 pix I posted on the contest gallery site.  posted by Leigh
