Last friday I went to Beechmont to watch the HG competitors launch and go cross country.
I was still suffering from jatlag and flu so there was no way I could have flown in the competition.
This is a photo of the crowded launch site.
There was more than 50 hanggliders competing.
It really is a beautiful spot to fly.
The goal was to fly to a lake near Boonah, some 99kms away. I believe almost 20 gliders made it there. Oh well there's always next year.
