Minnesota Soaring Achievement Contest
Announcing a new state-wide soaring contest: The Minnesota Soaring Achievement Contest (MSAC). This new year-long contest is designed to create excitement and competition among both beginning and experienced cross-country soaring pilots in our region, plus foster and promote the development of advanced soaring skills. We've based the MSAC on the current British Gliding Association's National Ladder competition, a very successful *fun* competition in the UK. The intention of both the BGA and the MSAC contest is to be a complete test of pilot skills, which includes: Understanding weather, identifying suitable task areas, understanding local topography and its soaring potential, skill in glider handling and understanding cross-country tactics. A premium is awarded for flying ambitious declared tasks, and glider performance is handicapped, of course. Details are available here.

Glider Scales
A group of MN soaring pilots donated enough money to purchase a set of very nice aircraft scales which are available for use by all MN soaring pilots.  For more information go here.
