ASW 19 instrument panel by Charles Longley
I am looking pretty seriously at buying 1/2 of an ASW 19. The other partner thinks there is a mod to move the instrument panel to the canopy. I am not that excited about shimmying my legs under it. Has anyone done this? If so what’s the cost of the parts and how much time to...

Looking for Sign Warning of Tow Rope Hazard by George Haeh
After some hunters blundered onto our field because a hunting app misled them into believing it was public land, we have decided to post signage. I once saw a sign showing a car getting dinged by a tow rope link. Does anyone know where I can find a digital copy?

Balleka videos have been deleted from YouTube by [email protected]
I was sad to notice this morning that all of Balleka's videos have been deleted from YouTube. I owe my interest in the sport to those videos. Though I'm sure the family has their reasons for wanting them gone, it feels like part of Matt's legacy has been destroyed.

What sunglasses are best for flying gliders? by Jonathan Foster
A couple of weeks ago I purchased a fairly cheap pair of sunglasses. When I put them on in my glider all of my instruments magically went black. Unbeknownst to me, the lenses are polarized. Are there any sunglasses that seem to work really well for flying?
