The official website is now open and ready for entries. The first Eskilstuna Open was arranged in 1969, but because the competition is bi-annually there was no Open in 2019. We will therefore celebrate the 50 years anniversary in 2020 with some special activities. More about that later. There will be three classes, Open Racing, Racing and Club. Entrance fee is set to SEK 2.500, but all entries which is paid before the end of March gets a SEK 500 discount.
The organisation consists so far of Competition Director Mats Lundqvist, Project Manager Bosse Christenson, Chief Scorers Reno Filla/Pall Einarsson, Head of towing Sakari Havbrandt, Grid master Göran Ohlsson, Club President Andreas Lundehn and many more. Six months from start we are working on making this anniversary competition another great Eskilstuna Open. The month of May is a very good time of the year in Sweden for gliding. In May we can see days with a cloudbase of 2500m+, snowstorms at high altitude, visibilities of over 100 km and sunshine at the field. We are working on getting access to as much airspace as possible for long tasks even if there as usual are some dark clouds in this area.
