Achievements in 2016
The list below is in strictly alphabetic order, as each achievement is worthy in it’s own right, depending on many factors including age, experience, and availability to mention but three. Some achievements are the culmination of 3 or 4 years gliding, some much less.
The pre and post solo ground helpers are not to be forgotten, retrieving gliders, hooking on, hangar packing, and generally pushing and pulling which makes for a true community of gliding.
Sincere apologies if anyone or anything has been omitted, please let Malcolm know if you are aware of missing items.
