Did the form not work for you? I like to keep tabs on any issues with it. The way you did it will work just fine though. In fact, you have mail.

Nope, still not working. At least three different computers and operating systems. Last try yesterday after filling it out and code would not qualify, so I decided to print. Well, the wheel just went round and round and round. So, good ol' Snip tool, save file as and attach.

FWI: The Snip tool can grab anything on your screen.

Will make a special folder and put in my WingTote TX bag.

Very clear and well designed form, and lots of "Or". Nice.

UPDATE: I've posted everything to the web site. I still have to proof-read everything again to make sure I didn't screw anything up. Then I plan to re-check all of the requirements (rules) to look for errors or anything that needs clarifying. It's a long and quite boring process. We hope you all like how it turned out. And yes, the work load in advanced is going to take a while. It's the long term part of the program. I hope you all enjoy it!

I need to add dynamic soaring, laps on a course and consecutive flight tasks to the requirements page. I'm not sure how I over-looked those. Then I should have everything caught up.

Been meaning to read the website to see if everything is there but have been pre-occupied. Kid #4 came Friday night.

I think the Dynamic soaring and laps on a course should have a time set from launch to starting of the task? 3 minutes from launch to start of task? Shorter? Longer?

************************************************** ************************************************** *********

I've almost finished the requirements updates and proof reading. It should all be posted and finished soon.

that time to start task sounds fine if you really think you need one. In reality most people will probably start it much quicker than that, otherwise they wouldn't bother launching.

It's finally done. If anyone sees anything that doesn't look right, typo's, or something that needs clarifying please let me know. I have read this through so many times I simply pass over some stuff and don't even notice it at this point. The web site is updated as well. Now that the program is complete (except slope advanced) I'm hoping that we can get some more people interested. If you're enjoying the program please help to spread the word. Thank you everyone for your help and support!

Quickly read the DS and F3F type task. One suggestion is to mention that the laps on a course is related to F3F racing. Maybe even give them some links like you did for the aerobatics.

Will read in more detail when I am not trying to catch up on sleep.

That new baby wearing you out a bit eh? Been there, I've raised 8. I'll just stick with the grand kids and great grand kids now. You can spoil them, send them home and get some sleep afterwards.

The weather here has yet to break. This week is looking good though. In the mean time I'm building a new OLY III. Should start the wings this week. Is any one getting any flying in? Making any progress on the program? Let's here from you. Now that the program is built we can use this thread for a place to talk about how we're progressing.

Hang in there,warm weather is coming! It was 21C (72F) here on saterday(amazing how fast the snow vanished!!) and was able to work in a couple of 15 minute flight 's with the Windward. It's going to be a good year, when I can get the old girl to speck out in MARCH on a realatively stable day.

Oly III EH?? You plan on doing some long duration flight's this year??

I'm planning on some XC and duration flights this year. Now I just need to learn to program this new fangled 12FG radio.
