Whilst taxiing in to park at an airfield where parachuting operations were taking place, the left wing tip of the 17.6 m wing span motor glider that the pilot had been flying, struck two of a group of parachutists assembled near to the left side of the taxiway. At the time, the pilot was concerned about the clearance of the right wing tip from a marker board. There were no injuries.
