Dec 19, 2021: Parowan 2022 Soaring Camp dates

Aug 17, 2021 Our website has changed

Our website is built using "Google Sites" tools, beginning many years ago. Google is changing the way Sites works, so our site had to be converted to the new standard. The conversion was "automatic", but left many details unsatisfactory. The webmaster has finished the "clean up", it's been reviewed by the ASA Board, now it's "published" and available to all.

Google promises the converted site will work much better on all devices, whether it's a PC, tablet, or phone, and that more features - calendar, maps, spreadsheets, etc - are available and more easily used by the close integration with Google Docs. The "look" is fresh and more open, so there's that.

Please report any errors or changes needed/desired to the Webmaster at eric@thegreenwells.us.

Aug 5, 2021 Parowan Camp summary

The camp went well, with about 22 pilots attending. Check the OLC for the flights. More later...the webmaster is in the process converting this site and others to the *New* Google Sites, a Google requirement to keep it publicly accessible.

June 10, 2021 The President's Parting Words

It has been my pleasure to serve as the ASA President for over a decade now, and the time is nigh for someone new. I did not enter into service as a Lion, but will go out like a lamb. I am writing to you after my RV trailer hitch broke down enroute to Boulder recently, and while both RV and trailer emerged unscathed, I did not. While extricating the trailer from the hitch, I seriously injured an already ailing left rotator cuff. A visit to the doctor has me scheduled for an MRI next week, and surgical repair to follow soon. In short, no activities requiring much from my left arm are feasible. (think ASH-31 flap handle)

So, I will not be attending the Parowan Camp this year, and ask that you will follow the leadership of Dan Rihn and Bob Caldwell, and participate in the process to elect a new President.

Feb 6, 2021 Parowan Camp

After some discussions with the folks in Parowan, including the new airport manager, the event is on! It will be much like it was in 2019, but now with the possibility of changes due to Covid restrictions. For now, it looks like those will be minimal ...

Jan 11, 2021 Parowan Camp?

We are working through the issues for a 2021 camp, but no decisions have been made, and none or likely "soon". Get your vaccination, stay safe - maybe the event can happen.

Feb 11, 2020 Parowan Camp Entry Form!

The form is available at Parowan Soaring Camp

Feb 6, 2020 Motorglider.org is working

Our domain name - motorglider.org - is working again. The website was always working and available at https://sites.google.com/site/motorgliders/ (it's "real name"), but a glitch somewhere on the internet broke the connection to motorglider.org and https://sites.google.com/site/motorgliders/.

Feb 3, 2020 Motorglider.org doesn't work

Our easy-to-remember domain (motorglider.org) isn't our websites' actual URL (web address). What's supposed to happen when you use motorglider.org is a "re-direction" to the actual website (https://sites.google.com/site/motorgliders/), but that redirection is broken. We are trying to fix it.
