Emailing contest flight log to scorer by [email protected]
From the cockpit, I want to transfer my flight log to my phone and email it to the contest scorer. If your IGC approved logger is Bluetooth equipped and it is paired to your phone, is it just a simple matter of downloading log to phone and emailing the file?

Rescue Aid by Graham Drinkell[_2_]
I am working on a fluorescent pouch, comprising a helio-graph, hi intensity LED lamp with SOS function, thermal blankets and an EPIRB/mob phone pocket. Smoke flares cannot be used. This is a low profit safety product. I will produce some decent photos and costs in due course.

US Standard Class Nationals by Retting
Good lord, who invented this torturous sport. The only fun part was the line finish. So, here we go. A 300 mile assigned task that took us across Bush Ranch twice. The first leg 100 miles SW into a quarter headwind that took the mortal pilots a couple of hours followed by a right turn for a 60...

Ultimate Survival Pack by Dan Marotta
I just learned about this really great survival pack from Switzerland.* It's appears to be more useful than their Army Knife. They are currently being offered for free and I'm sure all of us cheap glider pilots will appreciate that.* If I miss out on the early promotion, I'll still buy two of...
