PNW Soaring Contests Master Calendar


Here's the link to the public calendar. Only club administrators can add events. All events should be visible to the public.

https://sites.google.com/site/pnwsoaringcalendar/



I am developing a master calendar specific to soaring contests in the PNW (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and BC. Ideally it would have all events for each class etc listed.

This thread is meant for discussion, development and management of the calendar. I reserve the right to moderate the posts if they are not related.

In the next few weeks a link to a calendar will be provided here. If you are a club in the PNW that would like access to add events send me a PM with your information and I will work that into the development.

Brian, great idea. Thanks for taking the time to set this up. I'm interested in all events soaring related, electric, string or hand launch. This calendar should help keep track of the events. Thanks for setting this up, I will checking the calendar frequently.

Thanks for the support Josh. I hope it gets more people involved with soaring. It is vital to get the individual clubs to participate by adding events for it to be useful. So hopefully it will catch on.

Thanks for letting me know. Strangely they were on the calendar last night. I'm working on figuring out what happened to them.

So I see PASS has a TD contest the weekend we have our annual Montana Summer ALES Event.
Is that a big deal to you west coasters as one is electric and one is string launch?

Thanks

Good question. I'm not a member of either club. ALES is kinda it's own thing. NWSS and PASS I think both will allow electric launch instead of using the winch. Hence a ALES pilot could compete. How many would? No idea. But this is a good example of using the calendar to avoid conflicts. So it's your call if you want to avoid overlapping events.
