Thanks, I wouldn't mind taking a look at it, but I'm looking for a standard 1.5 m that I could eventually compete with.

Thermal Soaring Clinic - 1:00pm Thursday Nov 15th at Kennyworld

Just to give a little back to the soaring community Jody Miller and I will be at Kennyworld to conduct a Soaring Clinic on Thursday 5th November starting at 1:00pm.
(This is the day before the Tangerine Soaring Championships begins.)
The clinic was requested by a local pilot so if there are any other soaring pilots who would like to improve their contest performance, please come along and join us. We will be giving one on one instruction on these topics:
Sailplane and radio setup.
Launch setup and optimization.
Thermal lift detection.
Landing consistency.
Bring your model and lets have a great time. All are welcome. If you bring your LSF sheets we can help you complete some tasks in the process.

The Tangerine has been on my 'bucket list' for a long time. Unfortunately recent events preclude my participation. Have fun everybody and I will try again next year. Gil

Thanks for hosting that most informative clinic yesterday.
I learned a lot of interesting ideas that I hope to put to good use. Now if I can just find that article about those sunglasses!
Thanks again for taking the time to SHARE your thoughts and pratices with us.
