This is EXACTLY why the SSA has been removed from the soaring Rules management business. Everyone having an anonymous “opinion” and ultimately watering down the sport into OLC has resulted in the USA not having a soaring sport whatsoever. Far too much “debate” and SSA Rule Committee interpretation of anonymous polls has clearly proven to be a HORRIBLE path for the USA’s soaring sport growth. It has resulted in a cult of perversion and isolation, and has driven many from the sport entirely. IMMEDIATELY, and FULLY re-adopting FAI rules and fully focusing on other more important functions is the sensible leadership path. THE SSA Rules Committee (GOB OLC, Anti FAI Rules buddy club), US handicap committee (lol), etc. should therefore be immediately fully disbanded permanently. The USA’s 🇺🇸 pilots have spoken, numerous times since the rule meeting in Cordele for the multi-class Nationals in 2017 (before a GOB moron blurred out a insulting change to the original simple question asked to the pilots on hand (FAI Rules or US Rules?) where the vast majority of US and Canadian pilots hands were ALREADY up proudly for FAI rules). The SSA Rules are a complete joke and the sooner they are removed from the SSA Agenda entirely (incompetent children should never be given valuables), the better. ... See MoreSee Less

The time limit should be eliminated and the formula for variable distance tasks adjusted to 50% for speed and 50% for distance. To leave the formula 60/40% and add minimum time to prevent pilots to fly the shortest distance at the highest speed was a stupid idea. We have seen that crap 1991 at the WGC in Uvalde with the POST tasks.

So you helped make the changes needed? Outstanding!

haha - less of 10% of the Aussie population would eat such healthy breakfast.

Oj oj, vad mycket ni äter. Själv får jag i mig en h-macka och kaffe

Nej inte jag! Kanske skulle pröva? Ev. Lite avocado och annat gott.

How is it that these guys think they know better than an organization that oversees many different types of racing and records. From models to F1 formula one racing. Makes me wonder.

its stupidity, arrogance and total lack of oversight due to an inbred political system they have created for themselves.

The same old trolls and clowns of REC.AVIATION.STUPID (aka rec.aviation.LOSER) continue to amaze and astound us with their endless stupidity on what the rules should be (demonstrative of the problem). They are still unable to grasp the simple definition of RACING. They prove, time and time again, day after day, why the US Rules are a total and complete failure along with the SSA (with this policy, mindset and rule system driving their sports growth, excuse me, decline) in general. When clowns are allowed to pervert a sport for twenty years into something entirely unrecognizable to RACING, you get a sport of clowns 🤡 (and trolls). Its not rocket science! It’s now time (see votes) to bring back the simple, pure sport of soaring (FAI Rules) and put the clowns 🤡 out to pasture while kicking them in the ass and congratulating them on their TOTAL FAILURE which has driven US soaring to its lowest ever point. #jackasses ...

A clear vote for FAI rules in the USA also means a clear vote for no further SSA involvement in the rule management process. It means the US Rules, and the SSA Good Old Boys who pump them are FIRED! It means the US Rules have been rejected despite the endless pumping while the GOBs simultaneously bashed the FAI Rules at every possible chance. Yet watch the SSA Oligarchs refuse to listen to their own opinion poll...in 3....2....1........ ... See MoreSee Less

The SSA Oligarchs just cannot let their precious US (failed) Rules go. The people have voted and have (again) CLEARLY shown that US Rules are OUT!!!! and the FAI Rules are the USA’s CLEAR CHOICE. The whole point of this resounding opinion poll vote is to immediately DUMP SSA Rules (despite the strong bias in favor of US Rules) in favor of FAI Rules (our sports internationally adopted, fully managed and supported world standard). The vote result clearly DO NOT MEAN we want to have another round of SSA insider “analysis” aka idiotic SSA “opinion poll” crap. That is embarrasing, wasteful and irrelevant. This kind of immense hubris (see post photo below) is exactly what has led us to this atrocious low point in both SSA politics and US soaring participation today. The point is that this arrogant band of SSA OLIGARCHS must NOT be allowed to analyze and “creatively (corruptly) interpret” the “data” of their own corrupt opinion polls to their own preferences anymore. These idiots should never have been allowed to grant themselves such power (seperating the USA from the FAI), let alone weild that power (and expand it corruptly) for twenty years afterwords with no measurable data to support positive effect. The era of wasting our time on NON ISSUES and holding us HOSTAGE from the sport of soaring is now OVER. By dumping the failed US Rules and adopting FAI, we are all free to focus on things that matter, and growing the sport. The SSA folks who have led us down this failed path should be ashamed of their total mismanagement and waste of valuable resources. What a mess. ... See MoreSee Less
