Video – 750K on the Sequatchie Ridge

Steve Vihlen, a FedEx pilot and ASG-29 owner from Memphis, Tennessee, sent us a link to this great video he made while soaring the Sequatchie Valley at last year's Sequatchie Ridge Badge and Record Camp, which was sponsored by Chilhowee Gliderport under the tutelage of Sarah and Jason Arnold. Steve used a Contour HD+2 to record the video. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

If this video gets the adrenaline flowing, you may want to sign up for the Sixth Annual Sequatchie Badge and Record Camp and experience the thrill of soaring this scenic ridge first-hand. The 10-day camp begins March 18, 2014 at the Marion County Airport (KAPT) near Jasper, Tennessee. You can find more information about the camp in our Upcoming Events calendar. Sarah and Jason are also hosting a wave camp at Shiflet Field (9A9), North Carolina from February 11th through 20th.

This video is the latest of Steve's several contributions to the Café. Click the following links to check out his previous posts.
