Pee receptacle by Poppy Puppy
Some years ago a friend had a pee receptacle that, when stored, looked like a 35mm film container (remember those?), but contained a bladder that held about a litre of fluid. Does anyone know of the product its name, and who stocks them?

Phoebus A as a first glider by John Foster
What are your thoughts regarding the Phoebus A as a first glider for a low-time pilot who received their training in a 2-33? I have the opportunity to acquire a Phoebus for a very good price from the club that I'm training with, but it has not flown in over 15yrs. No one knows of any obvious...

FAA written exam for gliders by John Foster
I'm about to start flying lessons, and have read through the FAA-published text on glider flying. I have been advised to get the written exam out of the way before lessons, so I can focus on the flying aspect. I have been going through practice questions online, but there are many questions that...

International Gliding Commission by [email protected]
Here's a debatable subject few appreciate. For the second time in five years, the I.G.C. Bureau has been unable to find a worthy recipient to be awarded the Lilienthal Medal, Gliding's highest award. The Bureau has only 90,000 pilots/officials to select a recipient from. ( ? ? ?)

Shower sectors and thistles in LK8000 by Mark Williams
Does anyone know if it's possible to define a TP with a shower sector and also to have a thistle TP (Barrel with an FAI sector) in a task in LK8000? XCSoar allows it, but I can't see the option anywhere in LK which is a shame as otherwise I much prefer it over XCSoar.
