Default Hello glider pilots in Anchorage area...

Is anyone flying sailplanes in or around the Anchorage area? I'm familiar with all the CAP activity here, but any true soaring pilots anywhere around?

SEL,glider,tailwheel,tow, current/proficient. Aircraft owner, CH701

Soaring pilots that are actually getting out somewhere in the neighborhood and making it happen is what I meant to say.

I second that post! Ed and Pete recently visited us in Prescott Az and we all had a blast! They were great professional CFI-Gs and very interested in supporting gliding and every aspect of it.
