Parlick Grid Challenge

 Parlick Grid Challenge Leaderboard

Saturday September 6th was a Parafest day, and the weather didn't really play... at first. The comp was called off around lunchtime while it was actually raining, so obviously the weather then improved enough for people to go flying. Andy Archer took the intiative to give the grid challenge a go instead, and on his first (scoring) attempt managed a frustrating 5. "Frustrating" because he got within less than 50 metres of cylinder 6 and bagged 7 easily. Next time...

There are 15 scoring cylinders in a grid formation in Parlick west bowl (shown below). To get on the leaderboard, simply visit as many cylinders as possible in numerical order in a single flight, then send your igc file to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Your score will be the highest number you reached. You must record at least one trackpoint inside each cylinder for it to count.

Note: where scores are equal, the most recent flight is highest. So if someone equals your score... they're beating you, until you can do that score again... or better.

The PGC is an ongoing challenge with no time limits and no closing date as such (although there is a prize each season for the best score by a Pennine member), and is open to anyone - you do not need to be a member of the Pennine Soaring Club to participate. Obviously if you're going to be flying our sites regularly we'd prefer to have as a member, but visitors are welcome to give the PGC a go - get your waypoints from the email address above, and good luck.
