Lake Placid Wave & Flying Encampment

Adirondack Soaring invites you to our 1st annual Lake Placid Wave & Flying
Encampment. Our soaring club has voted to try a different site for an
encampment this year. Lake Placid, NY. The Canadian’s have been coming
down for years. This year’s event will be held from Thursday, September
26th thru Tuesday, October 1st. Stay the entire week or come just for the
weekend. This event allows clubs to gather and enjoy camaraderie through
various social events. Please pass this note on to others in your club
that might be interested. We also plan on having a BBQ this year under the
pavilion at the airfield.  Please e-mail me if you plan on attending, as
we would like to make sure we have enough towplanes for the event. There
is limited space.

There is an office area with bathrooms and showers. Lake Placid Airport
also has an area for bonfires at night.

For those of you that are not interested in camping on the field, here are
some listings of some of the local motels:
