  • 14th Annual Cumberland Spring Soar for Fun ~ March 16-19, 2023

    The traditional dates for the Cumberland events seem to have served us well, so the plan is to stay with them. That makes the spring event March 16-19, 2023, the summer event July 13-16, 2023, and the fall event November 2-5, 2023.

    Please use the Scale Soaring Registration so we can better serve those who plan to attend. Knowing in advance greatly helps with event logistics.

    Upon arrival at the event, please check in with the Event Manager and complete the AMA Sanctioned Event form and submit the Landing Fee Donation ($20/day or $60/event).

    Daily lunch will be served.

    Looking forward to the 2023 season!

    BTW, the HighPoint Aviation Airfield now has an official address: 1268 Sunny Side Drive, Ridgeley, West Virginia 26753

    Check the HighPoint Aviation Airfield website for driving directions:

    I was checking the long range forecast for the event today. Puxatawney Phil, Buffalo Bert, and Holtsville Hal all predicted more winter. On the other hand Staten Island Chuck, Malvern Mel and French Creek Freddie all predicted an early spring.

    Lets hole the local knowledge of French Creek Freddie holds true.

          Hi Jim
          My family is thinking about joining me to the aerotow.
          My girls are 10 and 8 years old.
          Do you have any recommendations for things to do in the area for kids. I know that they will get bored being at the filed all day long.

          Hi there, kids. Today’s word is slope. Can you say slope? Slope!

          Can you use slope in a sentence? Tuesday and Wednesday will be epic effing slope, Mr. Rogers!!!

            This is the week, ready or not!

            March is a volatile month weatherwise, but we can say for sure that it will be calm & windy, sunny & cloudy, warm & cold, and wet & dry... so plan accordingly
