Amen. Joe is still inspiring us at that same beach nearly 50 years later.

Given the choice between knowing Otto Lilienthal and knowing Joe Faust ... luck was on my side.      :salute:

A correction to the NatGeo article saying bruises being the only injury that day: Our daughter Laura broke a toe at the May 23, 1971 Otto Lilienthal meet. She was running down the hill enthusiastically, but without a glider, when she stubbed and broke the big toe.

I remember that hill as being very hard dry adobe clay.

Confirmed year:1986; only on page 1 is "1985" written in error,
but on subsequent pages the "1986" is placed consistently.
"Wednesday" matches the date shown in 1986 for the feast day.

You wrote that in 1986 on the day after my 51st birthday. You have been a continuing birthday present, to my flying thoughts and imaginations, before and after. Thanks Joe. :clap:

Certificado Self Soar.jpg [ 489.28 KiB | Viewed 4503 times ]

Some Otto members of Self-Soar Association received a direct certificate.
But such was not essential. Otto Members could fly self-regulated and self-certified.
From the roots and actions of S-SA came later clubs and other orgs including the
first two distinct USHGAs, one "Glider" and one "Gliding.

Chuck Stahl was a United Airlines captain pilot.
Richard Miller was a prior editor of Soaring Magazine for Soaring Society of America
and second user that we know about using Dockweiler, first being Jim Hobson.

Self-Soar Association had members in 23 nations.

The president did the handwriting on the body of the certificate.
