Why the miserably failed Soaring Society of America, and its clique based GOOD OLD BOY, crony politics IS A TOTAL FRAUD.

It’s going to be a really fun next 8 months, and many years to follow…

When will you #muppets show us the “carefully considered” votes and subjective, independent (😉, 😉) comments which have lead to the new “elite” “good old boy crony approved” US Soaring Team?

When will the “ illustrious” US Soaring Team Committee (aka good old boy puppets) release the “100% subjective” US Team (>85%) voting responses for ALL classes so we can all see for ourselves if the “carefully coordinated” reasoning (cough, cough) from the “Elite” (good old boys) are truthful when tested against facts, data, and evidence? These highly subjective responses (heavily weighted by the “team committee” puppets) resulted in the US Soaring Team Pilots and (wink, wink) the International US Team Rankings (highly objective, no weight) were therefore ENTIRELY ignored.

The “illustrious” US Rules (failed) Committee releases all their poll responses to the community (in full detail). Why does the US Team Committee continue to fail to release the poll answers and comments?

Why the double standard? Why the continued TOTAL lack of transparency when such a heavy subjective element (wink, wink) was utilized (🤥) for the new “pick the SSA Good Old Boy poodle” crony process which now results in the “Elite” (good old boy approved) US Team?

Shouldn’t you (Pete “the puppet” Alexander, Fernando “the coach” Silva, Sarah Arnold and Bob “the leech” Fletcher) all be proud of the carefully considered responses which you decided to “heavily rely” on? Well, share them. Show us their “brilliance.” We all know this is riddled with SSA BS or a contrived response. If not, prove it.

Check out the EPIC LEECHING by Bob Fletcher on P7 and check out Erik Nelson and Sean mini-me Murphy’s complete inability to fly on pace against the 15m class while employing intense, desperate pair flying efforts (from the early start to the landing) on the final day of the contest.

A tale of two ❤️  stories.  One, a willing love 💕 between a doctor and his mini-me.  The other, a forbidden love (stalking really) which is currently being reviewed by the Georgia State authorities. #nomeansNO

To our Australian friends, we heard about David’s accident and are very saddened.

We spent quite a bit time with him in Horsham and he helped with a small repair.

It’s been a rough season for Australia. It’s difficult to see close friends get hurt in the sport that brought you together and that you both love. I wish there was something better to say at times like these, but unfortunately there isn’t.We regret to inform members of The Gliding Federation of Australia that on Tuesday 21 November 2017, we lost one of our members in an accident near Lake Hawea in the Wanaka region of NZ. The deceased member is Mr David Wilson, an experienced and well known Victorian glider pilot. He was participating in the NZ South Island Regional Competition, operating from Omarama NZ in an 18m Discus 2. We understand he collided with terrain on a ridge on the Hunter Range late afternoon.

The accident is being investigated by NZ Police, Coronial authorities and NZ Civil Aviation Authority. GFA assistance is being offered as required through Gliding NZ. Members will appreciate that more investigations are required before firm conclusions can be drawn.

Our thoughts and condolences are with David’s wife Judy, his family and his many gliding friends.

After our trip to Australia last year, this ad embodies Oz better than anything else we’ve seen.

Bruce, Andrew, Ailsa. ROTFL!!

Now, this is a crowded thermal...and I managed to win this competition day, in my class (18m) by the largest margin of the ENTIRE Benalla FAI World Glinding Championships (in all classes). 🦅 vs. 🐩

No whining, complaining or wishing for US (OLC) rules. No trembling in fear within “scary” gaggle. No fear or even the slightest hesitation. That was only my second day competing at the FAI WGC level (ever), and I managed to WIN the day against exceptional competition, in rules I had no experience with, halfway around the world.

Yet we all know what the SSA was angling towards, even then...congratulations to the good old boy douchebags! Here here!

The SSA continues to prove itself total joke which has mainly been run by the same incompetent, territorial insiders for 30 years. It is now a complete and total failure.

Now that's a furball! Do you have a wire deflector installed? What is the longitudinal black bar?

Sean, that is amazing to see! Hope you get a chance to share some stories with the club!

How is it that the Soaring Society of America’s Good Old Boy spokesperson (and Jr. badge holder) Sean (mini-me) Murphy, proudly commented that a "consensus" was reached (by the "elite" SSA pilots who voted for the 15m & 18m team) that "Sean Fidler is...
