Does anyone use the Club Class? by Pat Russell[_2_]
Does any country run competitions in the IGC Club Class? USA does not. We have the Sports Class, which allows any glider to enter, and another Sports Class (called, locally, the Club Class) which uses a restricted list of gliders that is different from the IGC Club Class list. In another thread,...

International Shipping (trailer axle) by T8
Trying to figure out a semi-economical way to get a Knott axle from Germany to NE USA. Convenient, fast, very expensive way has already been identified :-). No containers carrying gliders or trailers are known to be coming in next several months, so I think that option is out. UPS appears to...
