Talking Team Challenge 2009

Team Challenge 2009 starts Sunday September 27th and ends Saturday October 3rd.

I know it’s a long way off, but I had such a great time flying, learning, and hanging out with other hang glider pilots last year that I have been anxiously watching the Tennessee Treetoppers site for info on Team Challenge 2009.

Registration has not started yet, but the dates, and general info has been posted at http://www.treetoppers.org/tc.html.

The meet is for H3’s and above, but I flew almost every day as a H2, just not as part of the team (… and thanks to Tom Primavera who provided retrieval services even though it had been my intention to be the driver!).

I learned so much about all things hang gliding and highly recommend attending the Team Challenge to anyone who can take the time off… even it is not for the whole week. I’m sure all last Ohio Flyers who attended TC 2008 would agree that it is well worth the “sacrifice” of a week away from work.

Ohio Flyers had a great presence at TC 2008, and I hope we have at least as many participants this year.

Default Intense Week

As John said, it's a great week, very intense, and you learn more in a week that you can believe. Everyone is very open and friendly, your chance to talk to pilots of all levels.

If you haven't gone XC, it's a great environment for first timers with lots of support vehicles.
