Seat belts ? by [email protected]
Looking at a new set of Gadringer belts. Is single adjustable or double adjustable the preferred option? This is for my ASW 19. It looks like the double adjustable give a little extra length. Any downsides from anyone that has double adjustable belts? Thanks, Nick

2015 18m Nationals by Andy K
Could anyone explain why 2 years in a row we have 18 m Nationals on the west coast? This year Minden and next year Hobbs. As far as I remember Bermuda High was willing to host the 18m Nationals in 2015. This arrangement is totally unfair to East Coast pilots. Does that mean 2016 and 2017 are going...
