I’m off to Spain for the Pre-WAG competition. I’ll update these pages whenever I can with results and reports.

This server might be unstable the next few weeks, as we’re moving offices and I’m in Spain with no control of the process. Hopefully it’ll stay up, but come back in a few days if it goes down.

Hasta la vista baby… :-)

Hjartdal Cup was held last weekend. The weather was not so good, with strong winds and showers. We got a nice evening fligth on Saturday, and a few got off on Sunday. I waited for better conditions on Sunday, but it never cleared up. Sverre Bjølgerud won, total results are online.

The party at “Bottom Bar” was great though, but no paraglider pilots had the guts to stay.

Milsukern 2000 was held last weekend, we only got one competition day on Thursday. Ingar Johansen flew to Røros and won the comp with 153 km. Werner, Trond Olsen, and Sverre also got over 100 km’s. I flew into bad weather and landed after 30 km.

Next weekend is Hjartdal Cup, see you there.

Day 2 at Ringerud turned out to be great, we got off earlier then yesterday and got on course quickly. Olav really went for it, and started final glide at least 150 meters too low. I was a little higher at the last TP but did not want to risk it. He landed in tall trees between TP and goal. Broken leading-edge tube, torn sail, and broken speedbar. Olav did win though, by 4 points. I got second place, and Ingar third.
