We are very sad to report that our good friend, long time soaring compatriot and founding board member of the Soaring Academy, passed away as a result of a traffic accident in Arkansas this past week.  Ron Gregg learned to fly here in the 1960’s, was part owner of the outfit in the ’70s, and also served as tow pilot for countless pilots launching from Crystal over the years since then.  He was an integral part of the fabric here, and will forever be missed.  Thanks for everything, Ron!


The weather this coming week will be fairly ordinary at Crystal, temps only in the eighties with lightish west winds and thermals up above the mountaintops.
