15 M Time Management Nationals by Kilo Charlie
Hi Jonathan- I assume that by the "ASA" you mean the Arizona Soaring Association and our basically unamimous voice against the "15 minute rule" and the one mile cylinder. First of all I don't understand the point that you are making since in your opening statement you say that "the contest was...
