The North Coast Soaring Association proudly presents the 12th annual

North Coast Glider Games 2024 edition.

May 2nd, 3rd, 4th and May 5th, 2024

The eclipse has come and gone and opening day is in the books so it’s time to gather on the slopes of Northeast Ohio! Come to enjoy the camaraderie as we challenge the skills of friends and foes alike. Heavy winds or light, there are always ways to get in the air and have great fun. The area around City View has been developed so parking has been paved and there are more choices for food in the area. Edgewater is beautiful, Perry is inviting and the club field is exceptional and ready to be enjoyed. 

Thursday: Travel day – come one come all.

Oh well, we had fun!

additional info

The 12th annual Glider Games is in the books. Light wind, fog and rain didn’t dampen the spirits of our favored pilots. We dined. We maidened a few planes and enjoyed indoor flying on the first few nights. We ate. We had a lot of fun finding new ways to fly our flat land planes and testing the skies with our thermal ships. Did I mention we chowed? Slopes, fields and parking lots, we tested them all. A huge shout-out to Pat, Mike, Mary, Joe, Khan and Attila for the great camaraderie along with all our local friends.

As always, Thanks for making the games a blast in any weather!

It is you folks that make the Glider Games Great!

Don, Mike, Jeff and the rest of the crew.

“Lords of the lift”

We added a page called “Lords of the Lift” with pictures of pilots and their planes. Make the pose, preferably at your slope so we can see it, your radio and your plane.
