2011 Single Surface Shootout
-In the meantime we're going flying.
Here is a meet where better pilots are brought down to an equal level, onto a glider just about any Hang Glider pilot can fly. A great opportunity for an up and comer to fly with great pilots and learn from them. Alas only 6 pilots ? There are 2 Northwing freedoms sitting idle here. A spruced up Malibu on the rack. And after day 1 Davis is not only in 1st but has a 600 point lead.
First task results (click)
Are Hang Gliding events becoming finacially out of reach for most?
Is it that the HG population has shrunk to the point where 6 pilots might be what we expect ?
Could it be that corporate america has a strangle hold on folks that want to fly competitions but only get 3 weeks vacation per year?
Are competitions just not cool or fun any more?
I will read your comments, should you leave them.
