Cicadas' e-song

St-Auban, 26 June 1997

Today's weather : Cyclonic SW flow with some light rain. Cyclonic SW flow with some light rain Meteo-France St-Auban soaring forecast bulletin is now on-line !

No practice tasks : today will be a rest day

Tomorrow's weather is expected to be slightly better with still the occlusion in the northern part of the flight area

Technical side : as you have noticed, there are not yet results of the training tasks on the web : preliminary results have been published in Saint-Auban, unofficial will be soon. Unfortunately for us and me, interface with website is not yet working properly, and priority is to solve local problems before Internet ones !

There have been unexpected problems with some makes of loggers, which don't comply with IGC standard for some items, such as serial number (A-type IGC record) ; thus we had to adapt the scoring program to these non-IGC-standard particularities (note that despite repeated demands, some loggers manufacturers were not able to provide one piece of logger for testing purpose prior to the Championships !)

We must confess also that some interface problems, mostly due to installation at St-Auban site, have been delaying publication of results ; this should be soon in order. National Team News : news by Team Captains or Crew members are beginning to arrive : South Africa took the lead with a first bulletin thanks to Carol Clifford yesterday ! France, Sweden also provided their first news in their own language, Spain, Finland, Great Britain, Germany, Poland are expected soon... Consult it at
