2015 King Mountain Idaho Hang Gliding Contest

The 2015 contest is over.  The weather was not on our side this year.  We were only able to fly on Tuesday (day 2) and Thursday (day 4).  A total of 19 pilots competed.  Pilot turn out was lighter this year, due to the weather forecasts.

We only provided awards to one competition class due to low turnout and the lack of flying.  We didn’t get much flying done, due to weather, but we had a great adventure exploring the Idaho backwoods.  ~ Connie
