International Gliding Commission by [email protected]

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.
