North Coast Glider Games

The North Coast Soaring Association proudly presents the 11th annual

North Coast Glider Games 2023 edition.

May 4th, 5th, 6th and May 7, 2023

It’s time to congregate on the slopes of Northeast Ohio! We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. 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. The indoor facilities and the club field are exceptional and ready to be enjoyed.

Thursday: Travel day – come one come all. We will meet for breakfast at a location to be announced.

If winds are light we will head to our Lodi Field for power and winch. Hmm, power and winch, that sounds like a great name for a micro-brew!

  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
