Default Glider accident near San Antonio

I just heard, through a friend, that there was a glider accident
reported in a San Antonio, TX paper. Maybe at the Boerne field?
Something about a wing coming off on tow. Anybody have any

There is a new glider operation on the west side of San Antonio, in
addition to the Boerne Stage operation. I beleive it is where the
accident Caproni was based. Here is the URL for the video clip of the
news report which indicates that the accident occured just before
takeoff (go to the archives and find the appropriately-titled video for

June 9th).
