Terry Ketron/Special to The Explorer, Glider pilot Tony Smolder is one of some 110 glider pilots and enthusiasts at El Tiro Gliderport, the base for Tucson Soaring Club. His reflection can be seen in the highly polished canopy of the PZL sailplane as he follows the tow plane to 5,000 feet above the desert before releasing his tow rope. Smolder is helping to organize the open house the club is holding Nov. 14-15.
