Another benefit of the program

I am pleased to see the give-and-take that is developing the Sprotsman's Program. I'd like to point out another benefit of the program. As many of the program's tasks required timed flights, there is an opportunity for participants to learn two more valuable soaring skills: using a person as a timer( a good timer is more than a talking stopwatch) and being a timer for another pilot (there's more to timing than punching a watch). Check out this forum & Thermal for discussions on the fine points of timing. Keep up the good work.
