Texas Soaring Association
In addition I would like to introduce our Championship manager, Bick Umphress. Bick has been
soaring for quite a few years, has flown lots of cross-countrys, and has worked many jobs in
local and world contest. He knows how to organize a contest and make it work! He will be a
fine host for us this year. Thanks Bick!
Oh, yes....the '97 rules are now hot off the press, so make your plans to attend now. An
application was included in the last newsletter. Mail it in with 50 bucks, and we will hold
your position and mail you advanced stuff (motels, turnpoints, SSA sanctioned contest
application forms, 97 rules and more).
Entry fee is the same as last year, $325. Contest dates are: July 30 through August 6.
TSA is located 30 miles south of Dallas, Texas (8 miles south of Midlothian)
on the soft rolling prairie where folks are friendly and the green, and soft
brown terrain is a positive hot bed of thermal breeding land of farms,
ranches, and small communities. Not that you would ever need to meet the
local country residents, but should you be extremely unlucky and be forced to
visit one of their large long freshly mowed runway-like pastures, you will be
treated like the special guest that you are.
