Local hero gets lost

As usual this time of year, they're racing gliders in central Pennsylvania.

This time it's a combination of the 15 Meter Class Nationals and Sports Class Regionals. Both contests started a couple of days ago, and Evan is entered in the Nationals in his ASW-20, T8.

After a heroic 810 km ridge run on the first practice day, Evan landed out on the second day at a small airfield which he misidentified on his way to the ground.

The contest, which will last till May 22, can be followed on the internet. So far, the bloggers at SoaringCafe are doing a much better job of reporting than SSA.

There are, of course, two types of people in this world: those that take anything Frank Paynter writes with a largish grain of salt, and those that don't, yet.
