2M Challenge – A La Rich Kiburis

This bi-annual series was started in 2008 by Rich Kiburis. Rich is a long standing member of the Buzzards who has been flying sailplanes since the 70’s. Rich decided to CD a contest series at the Buzzards every year with the format alternating each year between 2 Meter competition and RES. Last year the series was contested with RES airplanes. This year 2010 with 2M and next year presumably we will be flying this series with RES again. Rich CD’s 4 Saturday events through the year with some very beautiful 1st 2nd and 3rd place trophys being awarded at seasons end to the flyer with the highest cumulative score for all four rounds. Rich believes this encourages participation in every event and if last years RES series is anything to go by the concept seems to work. 2010 has 4 dates for this event as follows.
