Boston area pilots met for a World Championships send-off event in Princeton MA last weekend to launch me on my way. I received a lot of well wishes and advice from an enthusiastic gathering.
This event also marked the conclusion of a World Championships fund raiser organized by Juan Mandelbaum (pictured below). Apparently the local glider pilot community was prepared to give very generously to have me out of the way for a few weeks, even during the off season :).
