Five members of Coastal Soaring Association of Pensacola Florida escaped to Minden Nevada for a week of soaring in July of 2010. 

We used Soaring NV and Soar Minden equipment. 

Several of us earned Silver Badges and we all had a great time. 

This pic is Soar Minden’s LS4 piloted by Brad Jackson, was taken by me, (Rus Howard #99133) from Soaring NV’s LS4, the day I earned all three parts of my silver in a single flight. 

I capped it the next day with a landout in a hay field by Mt Patterson.
