I've come across some interesting glider landing videos recently. The first video is of a 1-26 making a short landing in a radio controlled model airplane field. On the audio you can hear a lot of concern about the fence and I was worried about a ground loop from the tall grass under his left wing. But the pilot performed a skillful landing and didn't damage anything.
Oh, I was rather amused that he was ticketed for landing there. I guess that's not much to complain about if it's the worst part of the land-out.
Up next is a landing on some very wet grass.
