North Coast Glider Games

The North Coast Soaring Association proudly presents the 8th annual

North Coast Glider Games 2020 edition.

April 30, May 1, 2, and 3, 2020

With the CoVid 19 crisis happening, our social distancing and long distance friends has us trying to make the best of it. Winds were light on day one and rain didn’t help but on we go!



Travel day – come one, come all (we visit the slope sites and test the winds depending on the weather and join for food and beverages after sundown)

The indoor fly is going to be at a new location this year. It’s a little farther but it will be worth the trip!

  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
