The Loop League Returns!

At the AGM it was announced, somewhat perfunctorily, that the loop league trophy would be retired after being awarded for the 2013 season. There were a number of reasons for this, including:

  • Needing to submit flights to a second league (Leonardo) made it more complicated
  • Technical issues with the league website meant it didn't work as smoothly as it should
  • Further technical issues meant it didn't display properly (or at all sometimes) on the club website
  • The existence of the grid challenge, which it was felt duplicated some of the elements of the point of the loop league

But the committee has changed its mind! It regards loop flights as something to be encouraged. Independently planning and executing a loop flight (out & return or triangle) is an challenge that can push forward a pilot's skills without the additional concern of arranging retrieves that downwind XCs require, and is sufficiently distinct from the grid challenge that it's worth keeping on.


We are therefore announcing that the loop league WILL be returning for the 2014 season, with some modifications. For full details see http://www.penninesoaringclub.org.uk/index.php/competitions/loop-league

Christmas Curry Night

I know its not that time yet but its appropriate. Pennine Soaring Clubs Annual Crimbo Curry night was voted in on the last club meeting for Friday the 6th December. So if you weren't there you didnt get to vote and you missed out on a super informative Xc meeting and a chance to vote.

So after years of research and experience we have come up the the plan of "Lets do exactly what we always do and where we always do it"! And why? Because it works. So the plan of action is to dine at the Spice of Bengal Matt Preston BaileyMeeting at the pub down the road on the right (towards town), Think its the Old Black Bull? from 6.30 to 7 leaving to get to Curry house for 8.

Please can you let me know who is attending so I can book the tables, at least a few day notice would be nice. Email or text or pigeon to Andy Mc This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 07872064313 or FB

Wives, husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends all welcome.
