Lincoln Area Soaring Society "LASS"

 

 

 

 

 

 

       Lincoln Area Soaring Society is a small group of guys meeting monthly to plan, share stories and the latest building project. 

 

       Our 10 to 15 members enjoy a flying field at Lancaster Event Center on the northeast edge of Lincoln. It is very large and accessible. Perfect for thermal duration sailplanes but some of us fly electric there as well. 

 

       The field is members only but we love to have guests fly with us.  Annually we host a handful of relaxed contests and fun flys.  Many LASS member enjoy flying slope gliders at the dams in the area and at Wilson Lake, Kansas where we hosted a regional pylon style race for eleven years. 

 

       The Midwest Slope Challenge is still the longest running slope race in the country. Jim Baker will be glad to answer any questions about LASS if you give him a call at 402-540-1127.

      I publish Metro Area R/C Flying to make a central web site for all the area R/C clubs, not to replace individual club sites, but to tie all of them together and promote growth and interaction between clubs. The most important service of the web site is to post the Metro Area Schedule. The schedule lists all the events for all the clubs in one location so that R/C flyers can see what events are available in the area and plan ahead. I believe it will also help the area clubs to work out their schedules so that a club event, will not conflict, with another club's event. The next most important service is to provide a Map Page that has maps to all the events, meetings, dinners and parties. Right after that comes the Newsletter Page which lists all club newsletters. Reading other club newsletters lets members see what others are offering in the area that they are interested in and promotes interaction between clubs. Perhaps an even more important item is the New Flyers Page that gives new members information they need to join a club and become part of our R/C community. This is your web site, if you would like to show-off your newest plane, or share an experience, you can E-Mail pictures and articles to me at: rc.flying@cox.net   There’s an Email Link on every page.
