Weather might be a bit dicey but winds should be adequate. Temps might be a bit cool so come prepared! Looks like we will start at CityView... Remember to check Slopeslayer.com for more info on schedules, accommodations and such.

Fun time today at the slope, thanks brother Jeff for allowing me to fly the wing today. Wish I could have stayed longer to partake in the festivities. last night's indoor was a fun time. Thanks Mike and Don for the organizational efforts and to all those who helped make it work. I just need to learn to keep the fingers out of the path of those props on the Wingos! Not like launching a slope wing, you have to respect the prop blades!!

I was just checking the 2015 calendar, and wondering where/when I might get some sloping in next year....
and found the SlopeSlayer website was updated back in July with pics from this year and also info regarding the NCGG in 2015
http://www.slopeslayer.com/wordpress/?page_id=332

“2015 North Coast Glider Games”
Again the NCSA (North Coast Soaring Association) and Slope Slayer will host the “North Coast Glider Games”.
The “2015 North Coast Glider Games” comes to the greater Cleveland area in northern Ohio on May 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The slopes and airfields we will use are determined by the winds and of course the weather will dictate the games we play. Again this year we plan for: Slope Pylon Races, Slope Combat, ALES, Wench, and Hand Launch. If we run into a stretch of rain, we have an indoor facility to fly electrics/electric pylon.
We will update the NCGG tab with more details as the date approaches so check back often.
Best regards,
Michael
