[RCSE] Re: Looking for a Soaring Achievement Program? CSS
I agree Adam.
The main thing I like about CSS is that you can have any two adult
witnesses. You sign up 5 people and that covers the personnel requirement.
When you are in a small club with only a couple LSF members, it is nearly
impossible to get two LSF 2 witnesses together at the same time. Now it
takes 10 wins or 10,000 points for the CSS Diamond contest requirement
(unlike LSF the max points for any one contest is 1000), but you only need a
contest with 10 people. It means a lot of flying, but that's the point.

The tasks are mainly individually based, and test general flying skill much
more than the LSF does, IMHO. The LSF 8 hour slope task doesn't hold a
