SB XC League? Interested?

Is this club interested in sponsoring a type of competition similar to the Nor.Cal XC League? or So Cal versions? Is it worth it or are these other two border states better for comps?

I would be interested if this has been talked about and if there are already decisions about it.  Bringing people together from the LA/VTA/SB county area for ‘beginner’ competitions would be great…

We have such huge knowledgebase in our local advanced pilots, it would be great to create a forum in which to benefit – the whole mentor thing, etc… Plus the visiting pilots are included.

Just thinking.
