Phil Gaisford will be competing in his own Discus 2. PG, the glider, left the US from Baltimore on 6/9 for Bremerhaven, Germany.
Alfred and Agnes Spindelberger, who are wonderful friends to the US soaring community, assisted with logistics and PG is presently at their place near Kassel, Germany. After visiting relatives in the UK, Phil and his wife, Pat plan to arrive in Germany on the 21st of this month, then drive to the contest site, about 1300 km. Crew chief, Jose Otero, from Argentina will join them on the 24th. Go get ’em, Papa Golf!
Melanie is strictly ground crew (N1K), but is an avid lover of the sport. She is the ussoaringteams.org web master and loves new ideas so feel free to ask questions, offer suggestions, and give her additional content!
