The whole idea of this event is to keep it as simple as possible. Simple planes and simple launching methods. One of the events that seems to be popular and easy to do plus really fair competition is to have 2 or more people launch at the same time. Through this winter I will do some trial runs on several types and lengths of tubing and string to see if there is a happy medium and something really cheap to put together. What got me started in this is the fact I enjoy that size glider but after 2 heart attacks and now with a damaged heart I do not feel like walking through vast areas to retrieve a line. With a short zip start I can handle that and there seems to be an interest in others that have limited abilities and this will be a good event for them.
