OVSS #7: Mid-Am Champs comes to Louisville!

OVSS #7: Mid-Am Champs comes to Louisville!

TRAVEL UPDATE: River Road will be shut down to LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY on SUNDAY. More info on the Mid-Am Champs page!

For the first time in it’s 30-plus years, the Mid-Am Champs is coming to Louisville. Normally held in Lexington, the BSS Club has given us the opportunity to host this storied competition. We’re making a slight change, though – this year the Mid-Am Champs will be fully man-on-man, just like the rest of the Ohio Valley Soaring Series (OVSS) competitions. Don’t know what “man-on-man” competition is? Check out this: Basic Guidelines for True Seeded Man-on-Man competition.

We’ll be holding this year’s Mid-Am at the site of last year’s Mid-South Soaring Champs – beautiful Hays-Kennedy Park in northeast Louisville, right by the river.

RES on Friday and then two days of Unlimited on Saturday and Sunday. All the info you’ll need is here:
