The North Coast Soaring Association proudly presents 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 will be joining us for wonderful time this year. I’m going to go out on a limb, (yes the one that my plane was stuck in) and say we will finally be able to congregate on the slopes of Northeast Ohio!

Give a little info to go with the picture if you like.
