The event continues…sort of. With President Trump making a visit into Cleveland, we were grounded locally from 1045a to 3p so we packed up our planes and headed 30 nm east to the Perry slope for some light wind flying.

Open, Glider Games, Fun Fly – 11:00a @ Perry


7:30p Dinner at Tinkers Creek Tavern, 14000 Tinkers Creek Rd, Walton Hills, OH 44146 American classics & cocktails served in a warm, down-to-earth setting with creek side patio dining.


Open, DLG, Electric Fun Fly – 11:00a at the Field




It was a bit chilly but the winds were favorable all day so we enjoyed what Lake Erie offered. (It offered 46 degrees and 18mph winds across that lake! brrr)



Best regards,

  1. Excellent! Great schedule. I know you’re going to have a fun time if you get to participate. Wish I could be there for the duration but hope to attend some of the events.

    • Had a GREAT time participating on Friday. Excellent sloping at City View and a blast indoors at Enterprise. Thanks to all the organizers, and especially Mike Gantner, for all the efforts! If you haven’t been to City View, or the North Coast, for some sloping, you’re missing out!

  2. What a special weekend. 4 Days of great wind at 3 different locations (plus the indoor stuff of course). Thanks to all that made this happen. It was my first event but I guarantee it will not be my last. Whew what fun. It was nice to meet some new people and get tips on how to fly better. Great planes, great days and great company. you could ask for more.

    Thanks again to all involved.


  3. I just spent the last three years sloping in South Africa, now moved back home to Detroit and searching for some local slope sites (that are closer than Sleeping Bear)….hope you guys have this event again..looks like some great fun…..thanks….Jim
