Des Champ Vachables Trophy

The John Bugbee Memorial des Champs Vachables Trophy.

John Bugbee was a member of DSGC who started gliding at the tender age of 55 and was quickly enthralled by the challenge of cross country soaring. In his 24 years of soaring he collected all three diamonds and an even more impressive collection of field landings. So in honour of John's spirit of adventure, this Trophy is awarded annually to the member who in the pursuit of soaring awesomeness, ended up knee deep in retrieve saga epicness instead.

In 2019, it was awarded to Wyn Davies for making a safe landing at Dunkeswell on 4th May 2019..
