1 CLGC, Review of 2011 Season Local Clubs Reporting Accomplishments, News Sporting Events and Results

2 2011 Soaring Season Local Clubs: Relevant events, licenses, badges, new gliders Club Events that made a Difference Safety Considerations Membership

3 NISC (Northern IL Soaring Contest) After a slow start the local flying season was again quite successful. Submitted were a total of 135 flights over a total distance of 16,357 mi (raw) or over 100 mi per flight. Compared to the East Coast clubs, we had a strong weather season after mid-June Even without the Sky Memorial-Day contest contributing, the total stats are impressive, congrats to all participants

4 NISC Participation Number of flights, total mileage, number of pilots are all up vs. 2010. Weekday-flying was stronger than last year. Aggressive task-setting at CGC yielded more and longer flights (Thanks SH and BB) The NISC is alive and well and it seems to be quite unique in the US Soaring scene. John C. deserves loads of thanks for doing most of the scoring. (Applause please) Who won?

6 Online Contest (OLC) More local pilots entered flights Our Region 7 quite a bit behind others in flights and distances entered Blackhawk Soaring in Iowa beat all Chicago Clubs, cant let that happen again! We are doing the fastest flights, however Stats for Region 7 only containing flights that originate in region Following are stats that I downloaded from the OLC results spreadsheets:

13 Comments Regarding Logan UT Controversial contest with high number of comments from pilots Disturbing number of highly rated pilots left the contest, especially in Nationals. There were 3 damaged gliders, 2 of them pretty badly. Task calls by KS were very aggressive No thermals in the valley, had to go rock-polishing to make it up the mountain More relights than desirable, especially for water-ballasted ships Day starts very late (2-3 PM), lasts until around 7 PM Intimidating terrain, perceived out-landing options are scarce J. Cochrane and Duane Eisenbeiss did very well Organization was lacking, no retrieve office was established until John C. stepped in, CM was ineffective and inexperienced, no Port-a-Potties Local knowledge was more important than usual

14 Were the risks any greater than elsewhere? Perhaps; I didn't feel any more vulnerable flying along the ridge than usual, didn't have any close calls, and with some sensible planning it was always possible to reach a reasonable field for landing. But that's because I was flying in survival mode much of the time and not able to think much about competing, so I was making sensible rather than competitive decisions. There was some damage to a few gliders whose pilots knowingly carried on into bad weather over inhospitable terrain, but not necessarily more than would occur in a contest anywhere else. The real carnage was in the dwindling number of competitors as the contest went on. Mass landouts, late night retrieves and aggressive and inflexible tasking options relative to the actual weather conditions took their toll, and by the end of each competition a very significant proportion of the competitors had chosen to go home early, rather than risk becoming a statistic. From Tom Kelleys Blog (711)

15 The Logan 15m Nationals and Regional contest was by far the worst managed and most dangerous contest of the season. We were extremely lucky to get away from that contest with *only* 3 broken gliders and no serious injuries or fatalities. After the first contest day, my contest strategy changed to please let me leave this place with all my body and glider parts in the same order in which they arrived. They got just about everything wrong, with the topper being their decision to censor my commentary from the contest. Too bad they spent so much time getting wound up over my use of the Unlandable word and not enough time figuring out how to run a safe contest in the Logan soaring area. These guys really ought to get a life and enjoy the sport a little more ;-). My vote would be to never hold another nationals at Logan either – it is just too technical, and there are too many temptations to literally bet your life on the outcome of a tricky transition. it would be a great place for a soaring safari, with its spectacular scenery and great soaring potential, but not a good place for a serious contest.
