"Blue Skies Over Utah"
UTAH DLG held their sixth annual “Blue Skies Over Utah” F3K contest, June 25-26, 2016 in Eagle Mountain, UT (about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City,).
"We are proud to be part of the '4-corners' Blue Skies series with NM, AZ, CO, and UT. The setting is a lovely sod farm about 20 miles west of Provo (across the lake and over the mountain from our old field for those who've been here before). Field elevation 4524’. The grass should be good. No shoes required!"
Our own LVSC / F3K team attended this year and was very successful. Jim Allen , Bill Hall and Jerry Parks competed in the 2016 Blue Skies Over Utah hand launch glider contest in Eagle Mountain, Utah. Congrats to Jim Allen for taking first place in the Sportsman class and now moves into Open status for competition . Bill Hall finished 2nd in the Sportsman class.
Jim Allen was well prepared to compete. He finished 4th place in the Sportsman's class at the International Hand Launch Glider Festival in Poway, California.
Good job Jim!
