The North Coast Soaring Association proudly presented the 9th annual

North Coast Glider Games 2021 edition.

April 29, 30, May 1, and 2, 2021

With the CoVid 19 still happening (Hope you’ve gotten your Vax) and restrictions easing, our social distancing and long distance friends joined us for wonderful time this year. I went out on a limb, (yes the one that my plane was stuck in) and said we were finally be able to congregate on the slopes of Northeast Ohio!

What a week of soaring and sloping fun we had.

Here is just a peak at what we did.

Tuesday Glider Combat

Just a reminder that the 2021 NFL Draft was happening in Downtown Cleveland and One Smart Dog had a competition on Friday so since we had rain on Thursday, we enjoyed our indoor at the dog on Thursday.

But first…we had great weather on Tuesday and Wednesday so we got set up and flew…

Travel day – we had weather all day but not the dry kind so into the One Smart Dog Facility for electric combat and 3D flying.
