Thanks Neil,

I've pasted a version of your photo here. I wanted to preserve it in another place ... in case photobucket ... kicks the bucket. :srofl:

are offers, so far. Perhaps US Hawks could run a poll at some point after critique of phrases has some discussion. Accurate statements? Respect Otto's sport actions were modern companred to tower leapers. Repect 1920c German sporting events that had hang gliding divisions. Respect early US college meets that had hang gliding division in some meets. We spectacularly ushered into history a birth of the persistent renaissance of the sport of hang gliding.

Scratch options for plaque wording:

OfferP1:

somehow it just does not feel right to leave off the actual title of the event-
part of the mystical attraction of the meet was to see who would be actually at the GREAT UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIPS .. to simply leave it out of the text is like missing a big clue in NATIONAL TREASURE , this is the holy grail of hang glider meets !
