 News from the first contest of the 1997 season.......Gliders over
Dunstable Downs.


         Two Contests so far....... While the Glider fraternity 
organised outstanding weather,
 and a 'wicked wind', to introduce the inaugural contest of the 
year.........they proved to be
 deviously fiendish at predicting a wet and cloudy day for the 
following week at Leicester.

	 For at the Icicle & Surprise Trophy not one of them was to be seen, 
save the
 presence of Stefan 'with or without engine' Kwiecien who, after 
perfecting his Pitts
 'High Glide into ploughed fields' figure over the winter, tried his 
hand at real 'un-powered '
 aircraft , and found himself, flushed with sucess as a 5-hour K-21 
driver and proud
 custodian of the DAN SMITH TROPHY, ready to do battle with the noisy 
dogs ! .
 At least this time he had an engine, although it couldnt blow away 
those low clouds and
 drizzle which saw less than one third compete in the first power 
contest of the year .
  But if you want to know more.......join us, and see the bi-monthly 
news review..............
