One reason I stopped flying at clubs was all the heir-achy within the club members themselves, especially when it came to the models they fly.
I now fly smaller electric models and DLG gliders (responsibly) at large local parks in my area and never looked back.
Ya want to fly DLGs? Are you anywhere near Long Island? DLGs definitely welcome at our club. In fact we host 3 DLG contests a year.

Do you realize you responded to a discussion that has been dead for over 4 years?

While this is an old thread, I admit I learned a few new things about this type of glider I hadn't realized. Only one member in my club used to fly these.. I really think the plane type is interesting. But after reading a few things on the effect it can have at some field designs,I do see where it could be a problem. Our field is setup in a way that a person on the end of the field ..with good control wouldn't interfere with others. But I do see how it might cause issues at some fields.
