Ever notice that those who consistently win, never have trouble?
Proper preparation is part of the deal.
I'm with Kenny on this. I would never ask for any sort of special consideration due to my own fault or equipment. Maybe it's from 40 some years of flying contest or all sorts that I think the same way. It might sound hard nosed but it isn't really, it's just the way it is in my book.

Only way around something like this that i can come up with is to have a throwaway round or a best 3 out of 5 type thing. It's not a normal sailplane format but it does get used in other types of contest.
