Warwick Endless Summer Comp - the rulz (.. people already asked!)
Flight notice to be left on the whiteboard in the club house (that's why I cleaned them) so we know where you are heading and keep an eye on you.
Organise your retrieve crew, get the trailer ready and establish procedures before every flight! Let people know what you are doing - don't get stuck between a rock and a hard place.
It's 2K13 - all flight declarations are to be done electronically (no ifs or buts).
Accepted loggers:
- any IGC approved logger (inclusive of the restricted "up to diamond") - this is the best choice, however:
- IGC traces from a Flarm are acceptable for comp usage.
Every glider has a Flarm - the club computer has got the latest version of SeeYou running and a Flarm cable attached.
You will have to take the Flarm out of the glider and connect it to the club computer / your own computer to enter the declaration before the flight.
You do not have to run out and buy another logger that will be obsolete in a few years for our comp purposes.
However, Flarm traces are not acceptable for badges / diamonds - all you would get are glass pearls, sea shells and a handful of sand.
You also need the proper blessing from a Official Observer to be able to claim that badge / diamond.
IGC traces from software loggers such as XC-Soar, SeeYou Mobile and (Apple/Android) SeeYou and traces from GPS devices such as a Garmin are NOT acceptable.
At this stage I will pull the IGC files from OLC for the comp scoring purpose and let SeeYou do the scoring. I can enter lots of different tasks for each day and assign individual tasks - go and be creative!
In case of a badge claim: Please get your official observer to observe the declaration process (or let them do it) before the flight AND get the OO to download your IGC file from your IGC approved logger or at least get them to witness the process after your flight. Let them help you with the badge / diamond claim. You can upload to OLC after the IGC file has been officially extracted.
Non declared flights WILL be scored and the score will get multiplied with 0.5.
Declared flights will be scored and multipled x 2 (here's a carrot!).
Training flights with students WILL be scored as well - and they are all declared by default.
The purpose of the Warwick Endless Summer Comp is to increase knowledge about
- the weather,
- pfroper pflight pfreparation,
- proper claiming procedures,
No panic if you didn't know what to "du" this last weekend.. there is plenty of time to learn.
