    Just like last year, I've gone bonkers again and designed something entirely new for the 2015 September Soar Treffen in Vermont. Hope ya'll like it.

    The featured sailplane is a real Schweizer 2-32 SG piloted by our very own Josh Teague! If you look closely, he's in the cockpit looking back at the camera (photo shot from another sailplane over Stowe/Morrisville, VT area sometime in the 1990s).

    All the new swag, clothing and gear is available on our Vermont club's new store through Zazzle. When possible, I've selected Made in the USA clothing by American Apparel of SoCal. This is really important after watching a documentary of how clothing is made overseas… (see ). The quality (surprise!) is better than any other normal T-shirt I've owned.

    Each piece by Zazzle in NorCal is custom made to order clothing. The darker color shirts will look the best and wear the longest. I don't make anything on these. I'm totally glad to help out our Vermont club with my donated designs and all the time setting this up. All proceeds from Zazzle sales (min 5% royalty) goes directly to our Green Mountain Thermal Club. Enjoy.

    Cheers, Thompson*

    Quick shout out to our sponsors this year!

    Here are some samples.
