The Glider Initiative is pleased to present our second annual convention ~
GliderCon 2018 is a 3-day convention filled with educational speakers and seminars, hands-on activities, glider-related games, auctions, raffles, door prizes, great food and so much fun you'll want to come again next year!
Located in Redford, MI this year, this convention will be held in two locations. Friday Evening will be at Karen Milas' home and Saturday the Convention will be held at the Marque of Redford which is an open air building.
