About the competition - 13:30h Saturday, July, 6th 2013
The first 40 pilots have already finished their flight. So we are ahead of schedule. At the moment, the sun is shining from a cloudless sky with almost no wind. In the afternoon, we expect the wind to start blowing what makes the conditions a little harder for the pilots.

End of competition flights for today and party evening - 19:00h Saturday, July, 6th 2013
As planned, we reached the first half of the second starting list. 26 pilots will have to do their second flight tomorrow morning. Because of the TBL-calculations we are not ready to publish a ranking list yet, but will do it as soon as all pilots have finished two rounds.
But first of all it is time for the pleasant part of the evening. As every year, Jaqueline Risch and Rolf Hassler spared no efforts to create a delicious meal. So we are looking forward to a beautiful evening. Nick Schädler had some entertaining ideas to delegate the people to the buffet.
