ECHLGF-2014 - October 10,11,12, Wilson, NC

East Coast Hand Launch Glider Festival - 2014


Down East Soaring Society is pleased to announce the 13-th annual East Coast HLG Festival!
This will be a qualification event for the 2017 USA team selection finals,
the final event of the 2014 USA F3K Tour.
  • Fun fly, informal contest on Friday, October 10
  • F3K tasks with possible modifications on Saturday and Sunday, October 11,12
  • Best pilots (7 experts and 3 sportsmen, subject to change) go into the Fly-Offs on Sunday
  • Free entry if this is your FIRST ever contest
  • Lunch provided on Saturday and Sunday, on-field dinner on Saturday
  • Pilots meeting 8:30am Saturday, flying starts 8:45am Saturday, 8:00am Sunday
  • Last preliminary round starts no later than 1:00pm on Sunday
  • Teams of 3 pilots (without team protection) can be formed for some
    additional smack talk and bragging rights. Team scores will be calculated
    and posted during the event. We may have a trophy for the best team.

Registration is open at the contest web-site! The task list will be
available shortly and we will announce it here. We do not expect to have to
limit the number of pilots. Stay tuned...

Here is a link to the Google map of the field: DESS field (Google map)

Please, make your travel arrangements now and free up your October 10-12 weekend for this great event.

The land owner is adamant there be NO camping on the field.

I believe the toiletries you left behind last year are still in the bathroom closet. You're welcome.

Excellent! Might as well ask if Shane can stay too as we will be driving down together. Too bad about the camping though.

You two will have to share a room as my sister in law will have the other room. She will be helping my wife with the Sat and Sun lunches. You do want lunch??

Yes I definitely want lunch. And lots of cookies, especially the lemon ones. I have no problem with Shane sleeping on the floor.
