Another wonderful event is over. Almost 3 weeks of intensive flying. Many times in weather the pilots would never fly but during the Championships, this was a challenge. Outlanding memories we will never forget. In this case, there was probably not better competition that would get closer to audience. People form villages in Slovakia (but also Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary) had unusual occasion to see landing gliders just in front of their faces in the field. After hard times the teams had at the beginning, these had changed into funny stories to be re-tell later. Discovering unknow land in the middle of Europe that offers many faces of ground shapes and weather changes. Never the same.
After one year of glider by oneself, or with the same people it the local aeroclub came the time to share the skills, share experiences, share fun. This is not just a sport with hard work, this is a lifestyle. And competition is not only a serious competing but also the kind of social event. We met new people, new good pilots appeared on the scene. Old good friends had another occasion to spend some time together. Some pilots were expected to win. We still have a lot to learn from them and we could admire their style. Some others have to improve to get their level. But there are also many changes. Many pilots showed already their strength. The gliding is thats why wonderful. Never the same, everyday is original.
Lets enjoy alone as well as together. This all is over for now. Thanks for coming to Nitra this time!
