The following is based on the Pilot/Operator report. The pilot had just taken off from runway 17L and was turning left onto the crosswind leg when the airplane suddenly rolled further to the left, stalled, and spun approximately 150 degrees. The pilot was able to arrest the spin and was in the process of recovering when the airplane struck the ground. The pilot said he thought a right quartering gust of wind caused the airplane to stall.
