Memorial Day Fun-fly

Held at Dry Canyon and has a history that goes back to 1979.  It was officially held for the first time in 1980.  Like most meets in the early days, it was just another excuse for the local pilots to get together for some bragging rights.  The meet turned out to one of the great success stories in the USA, not only for its fun flying and super soaring conditions, but for those who wished to compete for awards.  The official USHPA National Fun Fly-In was held here in 1991 and 2005. At present this is no longer an offical meet or even a Fly-in, but it is still a great chance to fly one of the premier sites in the USA with fellow HG and PG pilots. Rendezevous at the Cox Field LZ for Dry Canyon, about 8:00 am each day.  One of the fun-fly organizers will greet you and be sure you get a ride to launch.  After a day's flying, pilots will be able to meet for a barbecue and fun at the LZ.

Columbus Day Fun-fly

Held at Dry Canyon since 1987.  This is a scaled down version of the Memorial Day event and is geared even more towards the fun aspect of soaring.  Conditions this time of year are slowing down a bit which is ideal for paragliding.  XC flights of seventy miles and more have been made.  It's another one of the great times of fun flying in southern New Mexico and there is lots of everything pilots are looking for.  Meet at the Cox Field LZ for Dry Canyon, about 8:00 am each day.  One of the RGSA officers will greet you and be sure you get a ride to launch.  After a day's flying, pilots will be able to meet for a barbecue and fun at the LZ.
