Firstly don’t get me wrong – I’m still very pleased someone will do the hard (I know it is) work and make competitions. Why I also had made a little donation. I just try to get the most out of my money
Na – some constructive criticism we can all use, I think - right 3W
The tasksetter's thoughts:
(and please don't tell me that flying a 200km task in such conditions is unrealistic.)
About finding waves your right - I'm not very good at waves and I was not expecting any in this scenario with these small flat hills - so if there was waves as you say - then my apologies for my complain here
because I was really low lot of the time in areas I never had a fair chance to make a safe out landing.
Maybe it would be a pretty good idea to mention in briefing for all of us who not master waves good (at least for me
) that there’s possibilities for waves today.

For my part again you absolute spot on

Okay my problem here I guess is that I do not look so damn mush at the countryside (cloud shadows I do look for tho) when I compete, I just want to find the best thermals!!
But I’m really looking forward to these tasks m8
Reti was actually very good. I out landed and remember I was pretty angry
I had not so mush Condor whether experience at that time in these conditions, so after some training for my self I realised this type of task was exactly my kind of task – so more of these thx.

Okay this I didn’t know – okay so now I’m warned. . . I will try sucking it up from now on
Lastly – I have realised I really sucks in Condor competitions without training days before a competition. I know now this will never happen in SkyRace because we constantly changing to new surroundings.
For my part I would love to see competitions where we starts from same airfield in same scenario with all task from this same airfield – like a real competition in real life.
Ex. we all wote before Condor season starts where we want the competition and then all task goes from this scenario and airfield. For my part I would not in any way find it boring because for me it’s all about to compete – I can always admire the share beauty of a scenarios in any other time off-line or what ever!!
I still think you guys do a great job. Now I just realising I have to suck it up
