Narrative:The pilot was participating in a spot landing contest at the glider strip. The area for the landing spot competition was between the runways and was marked by two sets of traffic cones; the competing gliders had to land and stop between the cone sets. The pilot noted that bushes/small scrub trees occupied the area prior to the cones. As the glider passed through 10 feet agl nearing touchdown, the right wing contacted a large bush.
