By any measure, 2012 has been a banner year for the Soaring Café. We are delighted at the response of the worldwide soaring community and the overwhelmingly positive reviews and comments that we’ve garnered from our Soaring Café audience. Today, Sunday, October 21st, our good friend and prolific blogger Ritz published the Café’s 2000th post! When we launched the Café on January 1, 2011, that was a goal that seemed too far in the distant future to even contemplate. It seems appropriate at this milestone to look back and review some of the events, posts, projects, and people that have made this venture successful.
