** BEASTLY SOARING IS RETURNING .... ON 20/12/16 **
For newcomers, here is a list of information - to save you trawling through the other Beastly Soaring thread
Remit: Friendly, cafe-type soaring, mildly competitive. Usually 18 metre class gliders. All welcome.
When: Tuesday evenings 1900h UTC (same as Greenwich Mean Time)
N.B this will soon change to British Summer Time which is UTC + 1 hour
After start time has elapsed, join time is 10 minutes.
Eden (Northern England)
West & Wales
Central UK HD
Omarama New Zealand
Cape Of Storms
N.B. If I host a task with a scenery not listed above I will try and give a few days notice to allow people a chance to download it
Task time generally ~2 hours (200-300k depending on conditions). I lean towards thermal / wave tasks as opposed to ridge. The tasks I try and author and test fly myself: unfortunately I sometimes haven't the hours in the day to do this, and will use a task from the club website. Either way, I paste a task map or task ID# about an hour before the task itself.
Server name ServerOfTheBeast ( on http://www.condorsoaring.com/serverlist.php
N.B. there have been issues with some browsers (Firefox in particular) not automatically launching Condor when the server is clicked on. This thread details a fix : http://forum.condorsoaring.com/viewtopic.php?t=2867
While you can manually edit your registry to make the browser pick up Condor as a program, this is NOT
recommended, as you can really stuff up your PC this way.

From time to time I may organise day-long tasks during public holidays or over the Christmas break. These are based on "ultra-challenge" (>1000km) tasks, broken up into several 200-300k legs, and possibly across several overlapping sceneries. You can join / leave at any of the stop off points - fly as many or as few legs as you wish.
You can take the Beast from the East
But never the East from the Beast
