The excitement was palpable when our club found out that Harris Hill pilots Karin Schlosser and Heinz Weissenbuehler, Jr. were selected to represent the United States in the 20 meter Multiplace Class at the World Gliding Championships in Finland.
Nicknaming themselves Team ARC for the Arcus T glider they are flying in the contest, we coaxed them into making blog entries of their experience so we can follow from afar. ["Don't worry!," we said. "We'll make it EASY to post!"] So far, they've managed to arrive in Finland with glider intact after being delayed only by striking ferry workers and settled into the first practice day.
Team ARC's ground crew is also made up of several HHSC club members who have been instructed to send pictures daily. You can follow Team ARC's blog here.
