      we're cranking out 500ks this season.  6 knots to 7 or 8k AGL all afternoon long...

      We kidnap. We torture. It's our policy. Embrace it or end it!

      Most of the pilots at Black Forest Soaring Society moved down to Canon City in the late-'90s, and "Black Forest" made a point of calling themselves "Kelly Air Park" after that.  I don't know if that changed after I left around 2000 or not.  I got my winch endorsement there, and also collected the 1-26 WOMBAT from Black Forest for Meadowlake once.

      The original Black Forest is gone; there used to be a street in north Colorado Springs that commemorated it off Woodmen Rd. ("Glider Loop Rd." IIRC.)
