Radio-controlled glider pilots will compete in Davis

By June 15, 2011

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to soar with a red-tailed hawk, effortlessly moving ever higher into the sky?

The Sacramento Valley Soaring Society  is made up of members who endeavor to do just that with their radio-controlled model gliders.

On Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26, the society will host its annual two-day soaring event at Yolo County Grasslands Park in Davis, featuring some of the best model pilots in the western United States.

To reach the park, head south on Mace Boulevard from Interstate 80. Four miles down, you’ll see the entrance to the park on your left, near the T-intersection with Tremont Road.

Turn into the park and continue about 200 yards to a green-roofed shade structure and parking area.  Admission is free, and those who bring a copy of this story will be treated to a free lunch.
