Gap seals effectiveness study? by Bret Hess
Hi, we see lots of mylar gap seals and read lots of discussion of them. Does anyone know of an engineering study that quantifies their effect on sailplane wings or other wings? Nothing pops up quickly in Google. I'm wondering how much science there is to this practice. I'm hoping for more than...

**^%$^*)(^%$$E - OLC Again! by Dan Marotta
Once again I can't log on. Except some times I can. Then when I try to post a flight I'm logged off. Try to lodge a complaint and there are only a few canned complaints allowed, none of which address the problem. Yesterday, due to GPS dropouts, I posted an incomplete flight. Today I was able...

most comfortable parachute ? by S9
Hey all, I've been flying with a Security 150 for quite a while. It is most comfortable. I tried a Security 350 and it is most uncomfortable. It's time to replace the 150. What chute do you suggest that is very comfortable for those 5+ hour flights? Thanks Steve

As last year at Nephi, Bruce Taylor will be flying my ASG29 at Uvalde. But our friend and Uvalde 1991 15M World Champ Brad Edwards is looking for a glider.

Cordele...hello? by [email protected]
So its 9:00 PM on Day 2 of the Standard, 15M, and Open Nationals at Cordele and the outside world doesn't even know if contestants even gridded, launched, or scored. Nothing on SSA site, nothing on Fly Cordele-Soaring Contests Facebook, and nothing on Glide Port. Disappointing. US competition...

Softie by Ross[_3_]
I have a Softie Mini that has just turned 20. My packer says he will not pack it again because the manufacturer says he can't. Nothing to do with the quality of the chute. He was however nice enough to open the chute, and leave it that way. Is there anyone out there that would like it? Make a...
