1000K Questions by Brian Iten
When doing 1000K, how many turn points are you allowed during the flight and how far away from the last turn point do you have to be to turn at the next point? I know, hopefully really far but is there a limit? Thanks Brian Iten 17

A thought on BRS by Martin Gregorie
New Scientist just picked up on two cases where Cirrus SR-20 drivers pulled the BRS trick and 5 people came down safely and walked away without injuries. Four in one aircraft and one in another. BRS works: good. That was about the limit of that story. However, I took a look at the Cirrus...

LX5000 help by Ted Wagner
Is there an FAQ or list of How-To's somewhere for the LX5000? I've RTFM'd, but while the manual gives a decent overview of the user interface, it doesn't go into much detail at all on how to do things like prepare tasks and then use the LX5000 to fly tasks. When I google this I only get references...

WTB: ASW 27A water valve by Peter Van Camp
While I am on the waiting list for a fast dump valve from John Murray, I would like to repair my current valve so I can fly ballasted. I am in need of the PVC flange/water valve into which the brass flange screws into from below the wing. Mine is cross threaded and a tap did not help seal it. If...

A Stolen Afternoon to Yosemite by Marry Daniel or David Grah
I took the afternoon off work today to fly my old Libelle. I left work at 1245, assembled my glider, and took off from the Bishop Airport behind Hangar One's Husky at 1330. There was strong lift on tow and I released in a good thermal that took me to over 13,000 feet. I flew north up the...

Sumo wrestlers and soaring by John0714
I am new here. Is this about gliders that are towed by airplanes etc? I did it once when I was just a little smaller. But now I am the size of a sumo wrestler(: Perhaps if the gliders could handle folks like us the sport might be in better shape even if we were not:)

Thermal mapping by John
Here is a thought: Was in the back yard making thousands of soap bubbles (Mr. Bubbles) for the baby. Slight breeze. Clearly could tell the entire airflow pattern in the back yard....even a little ridge lift over the glider trailer! Wonder if you could add a soap bubble machine to a sailplane? ...

Self launch effect on soaring growth by John Jones
As more self launch sailplanes are built, what will be the effect on soaring growth? Will soaring clubs decline? Will self launchers disperse to many more airports, creating more exposure? Any thoughts?
