Light shower just passed by, but it could not influence the good atmosphere here. Many pilots and crew memebers are busy making up their gliders after enjoyable flights. We assume that as the most of them are smiling and having a good time while discussing about the flight. No doubt, there is more to talk about than it was yesterday.

Sky is getting more and more cloudy with some shovers around. Dying Cu clouds are spreading into large patches of shade.
Gliders are already coming home.
I am very glad that, on behalf of all members of Aeroklub Nitra, I can invite you again to the Pribina Cup 2014 - International Easter Gliding Competition. The event is scheduled, as usually, during Easter holiday time and will be held at the Airport Nitra / Slovakia as always.
The Nitra venue is already well known to the most of you as established and a great place to do any aviation sport. All the necessarily infrastructure, especially the airfield without significant obstacles, favourable outlanding options in the vicinity and within task area, on site camping and catering, big briefing area, glider and avionics repair facilities, lodging being close or directly at the airport, good route infrastructure with the brand new highway called PR1bina passing by, great landscape ranging from flatland to highest mountains and traditionally very good gliding weather should ensure that all of you coming should experience pleasant atmosphere and relaxed competition as in the past. Furthermore Slovakia’s climate and our natural fortune have promoted the country for the tourism and all other adventure sports. However all that would have no value without our greatest fortune, our people, in this case all those who work hard that Pribina Cup can happen. Local club members, towpilots, all those who take care of your accommodation, catering and your stay here, are very important to the success of our and we believe also your event.
Country wide common interest to flying sport, particularly to gliding, is reflected by organising activities of the national aeroclub or local clubs in the past. Without listing all the events it is obvious that Slovakia is one of the most frequent destinations for the competition glider pilots in the recent years. These activities were complementary to the birth and the growth of the Pribina Cup to its current status as well established International Gliding Competition.
Without your support and the support of our partners and friends Nitra and Slovakia would not became famous in gliding sport and we would not be able to achieve our goal to organise an exciting and great but relaxed and especially safe events.
I hope that you have already several strong reasons to experience flying in Nitra this year again. All the team is looking forward meeting you again.
On behalf of all from the Pribina Team
