HellFire 22 - Front Page News

Front page of SL Tribune - Thursday, August 10, 2017 Front page of SL Tribune - Thursday, August 10, 2017 Salt Lake Tribune

Salt Lake Tribune's Robert Kirby is no stranger to HellFire. He has visited and written about Hellfire many times over the years. Here is what the Salt Lake Tribune says about Kirby: "Fool-in-residence Robert Kirby has been lampooning life in Zion since 1994. He has won numerous literary awards of dubious note but is most proud of blowing things up — particularly the tempers of those who take themselves too seriously."  Sounds like the perfect guy to write about HellFire.  His stories always tie back to the community and culture and a way that makes you laugh just a little. This year, Kirby followed UROC member Travis Tabbal as he attempted his NAR Level 3 certification flight at HellFire. Please take a minute and read this great article and the absolutely fantastic photos that Tribune photog Scott Sommerdorf  took.

Congratulations to Travis by the way!
