The first issue I have in the archive is "Low and Slow" edited by Joe Faust, from March 1971. That
was from before USHGA was formed, when there were only a few regional clubs and the sport was
just starting to emerge from the primeval ooze. The 1968 newsletter was 8 pages, I think, put out
by Irv....somebody. I'll have to find it. I contacted him for reprint permission back when I did the
magazine archive, and found him in an assisted living facility near Monterey. Joe also provided
permission to reprint his newsletter.

No, the Hang Glider magazine. Good try. Ray

Yep...20 pages, mimeographed. I have a bunch of the early 1970's HG magazines and newspapers
here, still awaiting scanning and archiving some day in my Copious Free Time. The very first one I
know of was from 1968, "Low, Slow and Out Of Control", which had a letter to the editor speculating
on the future of "hanging gliders" from.....Vim Toutenhoofd! (Old-timers around here know him.)

USHPA has the magazine collection available as PDF files with a searchable index, for sale on a
thumb drive if you're interested in looking back at our history. More recent magazines can be
downloaded from USHPA's website directly, including the current issue for active members.

My first Hang Glider mags were $1.50. Happy New Year! Ray

 Hi pilots,
Just got my Winter 2022 issue of Pilot magazine. I see that as a cost savings measure that the Board decided to cut back publication of the mag from every other month to quarterly. Seems like it wasn't that long ago that the decision was made to "temporarily" reduce publication from every month to every other month. Now it's being cut rather than being restored. Disappointing news to start the new year.
Happy New Year,
Greg
