Default Landing Check Lists

I wonder how many different landing checklists are in use. If the list
you use is not USTALL, (Undercarriage, Speed, Trim, Airbrakes, Look out
for Traffic, Land), please post here and label the items.

What I wonder is *when* people run through their checklist. I do mine
before the IP so I have at least the time in the pattern to sort out any
problems (e.g. airbrake malfunction, wind direction different on ground
vs pattern altitude).
I've heard of some folks doing their list on downwind. Too late for my
comfort.

WUF - shortened to 'WU' since I don't have flaps and
to 'U(gh)' without the water.

I don't use a checklist, I configure the glider appropriate
for the stage of the flight.
Using a checklist which is not appropriate for the
glider being flown can mean that the automatic checklist
becomes an automatic response

This is a good question, since many standard checklists leave out
important things and add silly ones ("Land?" What, I'm going to forget
to land?!!).

Mine:

Wind (direction, strength, how strong will gradient/wind shadow be)
Ground (pick place to land, look for obstructions, wires, fences, pick
approach path to landing spot)
Gear (down and locked, and check)
Trim (pick speed appropriate to conditions, trim to it, configure
glider for landing including flaps and spoiler check)
Traffic (announce, look!)

For all landings, my pre-landing check is:

W- Water jettisoned.
U - Undercarriage down and locked.
L - Loose objects stowed away and, considering myself
as a potential loose object, straps tight.
F - Flaps set as appropriate.

For field landings I also do:

W - Wind speed and direction (estimate as best as possible)
W - Wires - power, telephone and electric fences
S - Size
S - Slope
S - Surface
S - Stock
T - Tramlines
