No flying today out of respect for Peter Groger.

Yesterday after the start gate Peter Groger was seen to spiral down an impact near the top of the Big Spine.  Although pilots landed to help immediately and the competition doctor was on the scene within 30minutes, the extent of the injury was too great for any form of resuscitation.  My sincere thanks to those pilots landing and attending at the accident site and my condolences to Peter´s family.  Today, Dieter, the meet director has called for a non flying day out of respect for Peter.  The German Open will resume tomorrow (Tuesday 9th Sept) if the weather conditions permit.
