ONLINE SCORING AT WOW 2015

This year we will be using the "Airscore" online scoring system. You upload your own tracklog via any internet connection anytime after you land. In order to make this a smooth trouble free process, please make sure you are familiar with downloading your track log from your GPS and that you know how to save it as an IGC file. The IGC file is then uploaded via the internet to AIRSCORE. There will be a link on the comp web page direct to AIRSCORE page for WOW 2015.

HGFA Waiver

It is a condition of entry into any NHGC competition that the entrant must be a member of the HGFA and as such have signed the HGFA waiver.

Wings Over Wellington 2015

WoW 2015 is on!
Wellington airfield at Bodangora - site of the first WOW. Last year showed that this area is fantastic for cross country competition flying. The lay of the land with the surrounding hills, flat lands and other features all make for interesting and varied flying.

Great facilities in Wellington township which is just a few minutes drive from the airfield.

[Site Update] Scoring

You were sent a group email from http://wow.asn.au/comps/.

Pilots,

Starting with WOW the NHGC is trialling, and hopefully moving to, online
scoring. What this means for you is that you will need to learn how to
download your tracklog from your device and upload it to a webpage.

Check the website, wow.asn.au, over the next week as I will be posting some
instructional videos.

I strongly recommend you have a backup GPS. The earlier Garmin 72 and
higher is relatively cheap and pretty much bullet proof. I put mine in a
side pocket of my harness and it works fine.

Mobile Coverage Maps

Mobile phone communications are going to be essential during the comp so make yourself familiar with the coverage maps.

WOW! Pilots and Teams

We are heading towards 20 pilots. That's 5 teams. Get your team details on the WOW pilots page.

Use the support form to let us know the name of your team and who's in it. You can also let us know if you are looking to get into a team or if your team needs more pilots.

There is a trophy for the highest scoring team.
