After becoming low during a cross country flight, the pilot selected a paddock in which to carry out an outlanding. During the approach the pilot became aware of a powerline in the vicinity of the paddock and elected to land in an adjoining paddock. As the glider was flared for landing it struck a small mound concealed in the knee high stubble. The impact resulted in the aircraft being substantially damaged. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
