According to the pilot, he was landing on a grass strip and made his approach "a little too high and a little too fast." He did not realize the grass was wet with dew. During the landing roll he attempted to slow down by applying the brakes. Directional control was lost and the airplane slid sideways coming to rest up against a hangar. The left wing spar and an engine mount sustained substantial damage.
