Polish Grand Prix by Juanman[_2_]
The Polish Grand Prix has amazing tracking in real time. But the scoring is a mess. Apparently there is an issue with the finish line and both days show all landing out. Anyone know what's going on? http://www.sgp.aero/poland2017/results-sgp/results.aspx?contestID=28344

Reserve altitude by [email protected]
Just double checking my understanding of the see you mobile, (Oudie) reserve altitude correction. If I set my reserve at 1000' and my target field is at 700' and my "Arrival Altitude" says 2700' ... does that mean I will arrive at 3700' essentially 2000 above the ground? Dennis DC
