SBSS Feburary Club Contest

Looking forward to the monthly Club Contest on the 25th!

Rich and Don are bringing a winch/retreiver set. Bob S. is bringing a second set.

I'm guessing Bob D. will be the CD, maybe with GliderScore up and running?

Remember the new 10 AM start time, pilots meeting at 9:45. One trim flight per pilot before 9:45.

It looks like there are some bugs in the least at the top from Feb. I had a higher raw score (3079 to 2961) than Tim but somehow Tim scored more percentage-wise in both the results for that contest (99.3 to 99.5) and in the season standings (99 to 100)?
