Thanks Russ, John. Could have been much worse fortunately but the biggest casualty has been time (and wasting the fantastic flying weather trying to dry things out.)

Nice bones Lurk.

I still haven't finished anything, but I was poking around glider plans and such recently. The Django, from 1960, looks interesting and maybe even easy:
https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=13067

For those who want a simple scale job that might also do well in non-scale, you might consider the AVF-23.
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=2300
Aspect ratio is 9.3. There is also a similar but nicer looking design called the AVF-21, with a slightly higher aspect ratio.

If you want lower aspect ratios, you won't find a much stubbier conventional design than the Moti-2, with an aspect ratio just over 5, but it's not quite as simple as the AVF gliders:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=3450

Dittmar HD-53, nice and stubby but more complicated:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=3054

The ES-54 is another stubby one:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=1253

We all know the Colditz:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=406

If it's gotta be swoopy, the BrO-3 might be good:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=2140

A simple possibility, the Lasco Lark:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=1735

If you don't mind cabane structures, the Scud 1 is a possibility:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=1311

I don't know if flying wings make sense for this event, but if so, we have the Hutter IMI:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=3643

Bich-2:
https://www.j2mcl-planeurs.net/dbj2mcl/planeurs-machines/planeur-fiche_0int.php?code=2001

I think the BiCh-13 looks really cool, but maybe it doesn't have enough area:

You might also look at these :
Nord-2
Corsair
Dream Bogey
Lulu
The Glevum Glider
Mad's Dream
...the Cosair and Dream Bogey are PeeTee and my favorites...these are all Brit designs and can be found in Aero Modeller and Outer Zone I believe...the Corsair is a very
nice one that I fly here in the states

Thanks to Lincoln for suggesting another batch of potential designs, and also Skyrocket for identifying the others; the Corsair and Dream Bogey have appeared this side of the pond and fly well.

The Squiggle from Outerzone should work well.
