The Warner springs campout will take place during the weekend
of 7/19/03 to 7/20/03. This is a great place for soaring and we will aero-tow
Blanik to the Sky Sailing airport
located between Hemet and San Diego. Keeping with the OCSA's goal of providing a
family atmosphere, the Warner Springs campout will have plenty of activities for
family members who don't fly sailplanes. So bring your family and join us for this fun
packed weekend campout.
For all our flying
members this is a great opportunity to fly with your club buddies at
a different location. Regardless of your experience level you will have
a great soaring experience at this campout. Our instructors will be
there to help you out.

during the days. Evenings we spend together :) Warner Springs is located
