Bill has been flying sailplanes since 2001, after too many bumps and bruises flying hang gliders.
He has won 7 regional competitions, and recently the Open Class Nationals last year in Montague, California. He won the Barron Hilton Cup western region in 2007 and has enjoyed competing in the OLC for several years.
