The Sierra Silent Soarers is a social organization dedicated to promoting and enjoying radio controlled
gliders and electric aircraft. S3 has been an AMA chartered club for over two decades, and has members

gliders and electric planes. Membership is open to the general public and visitors are always welcomed.

Meetings are held quarterly on the first Tuesday of April, July, October, and January, at 7:00 pm, at
the Round Table Pizza at Damante Ranch Parkway (near the Walmart).

This year's 2018 Annual award ceremony/pizza party/club raffle will be February 23 (Friday) at 7:00 pm at the
Round Table Pizza. Be there!

Monthly contests are held from March to October on the third Sunday of the month, except for March (4th Sunday)
