I have an older Komet trailer with newer axel. I parked the trailer about 2 months ago and it was working fine at the time. Now the wheels are immobile. I even tried to pull it with my car and the wheels just dragged across the pavement. In the dark of night I could not figure out if somehow...

Zero to Hero in one flight by Tony[_5_]
Back in the good old days the Diamond Goal did not have to be a closed course. Did anyone ever go from no badges whatsoever and do a +5 hr declared 500+km straight distance flight along with a 5000 meter altitude gain to claim Silver, Gold, and all 3 diamonds on the same flight?

What Good is a Standalone Borgelt B57? GPS? by ContestID67[_2_]
A friend bought a glider. It came with a Borgelt B57 in a box (not in the glider). There is a Borgelt B50 vario still in the glider. From what I read the B57 must have a B50 to function. Thus the B57 by itself is useless. Right? Also, I read in the manual about "GPS" but there are next to...

World Class Nationals (US) by Andy[_1_]
I seems to be a sad reflection on our sport, or the rules that govern it, that a contest with only 7 contestants can be called a "Nationals". I'm used to flying local club contests with 3 times more contestants than that! Andy

My question is: can I use this bill as proof that I flew there from Washington State? And if so, I believe that may make my flight one of the longest...

The SSA member achievements pages show the current US pilot ranking and the best pilot ranking. In my case my best ranking is based on a 2004 Regional in which I placed 6th. Since I placed 2nd in a 2003 Regional I would have expected the ranking from that year to be higher. Can anyone explain...
