Glider Golf 2010

While I was visiting my family in western Pennsylvania, I had an opportunity to watch and photograph one of my father’s R/C Gilder events; “Glider Golf 2010”. It’s a 9 hole course; 3 separate launches using an electric winch with 3 “holes” (Hula-Hoops). The smallest number of “strokes”, wins. Sounds like fun!
