Two memorable days of competition under challenging conditions. Tony Guide did an outstanding job as contest director. Thanks to all the helpers and to John Powell for the pictures taken on Sunday.
Silent Knights Soaring Society
Unlimited Thermal Duration contest
Saturday and Sunday: June 8th and 9th
The SKSS thermal duration contest will be located at our immaculately maintained flying field situated in Delaware’s White Clay Creek State Park. Everyone who sees our field falls in love with it; some people join our club on the spot just to be able to fly here. Check out the interactive photo taken by our resident photographer extraordinaire John Kirchstein.
Field will be open on Friday the 7th for practice.
The park has waived the access fee for visitors to the flying field. See the next post for more information.
And now camping is allowed on the field. Hooray!!
Awards will be given for Expert and Sportsman as well as hearty congratulations and bragging rights for Novice. AMA sanctioned and, most importantly, our universally acclaimed luncheon will be provided.
Après contest libations will convene at McGlynns Pub on Saturday night, just minutes from the field.
As a college town, Newark has a lot of motels. The Super 8 on Main Street is only six minutes from our field. The Rodeway Inn on South College Avenue is only twelve minutes from the field. Or… check out some other hotels in the area.
And as a college town, Newark also suffers from an embarrassment of restaurants. The Deer Park Tavern,Home Grown Cafe, and the Iron Hill Brewery are only some of the delightful establishments awaiting your patronage.
