I was just on your web site. Are you going to post the progress of pilots moving up in the program.
I am looking forward to starting the program. When I get a weekend off from contests or practice I want to try and do the copper level in one day. That should be a real challenge.

I apologize Gordon. I should have looked at the records before opening my mouth. Now we really have some work to do to catch up.

Man there was great lift this weekend this weekend. I specked out the Radain more than once. If I was doing another 10 minute task comp I could have made super long flights.

Can I post picture of the glider I just bought?

Sure, since we know you'll be using it in the program. Besides sharing new glider pics is mandatory.

DECALS: The decals are made from automotive grade vinyl. I had them made by a local auto grafix company. They will hold up quite well in the sun since they were designed for that. They're $1 each. S&H is $1 for up to 3. Basically cost. I'm not doing this for profit. My wallet will attest to that.
