New Record
« on: July 14, 2014, 09:19:51 pm »
Hi all,

I've been a member here for a while and I hope my contributions have been helpful from time to time.  My other passion is gliding. I'm pleased to say that I've just recently set a new record and did a write up about it which you can read by following the link below. Before you click can I ask a favour? Please click on the 5th star to rate the article if you like it. (If you don't, please, please, please don't click on any. As my mother would say, if you have nothing good to say, say nothing!). This request is not driven by vanity. We (the gliding movement) are in dire straights here at the moment and we are trying to use this event a to generate as much publicity as possible. If enough people vote the article will make it into the 'Top Rated' section and be more visible for longer.

Thanks.

Thanks guys for your votes and your tributes here. The piece seems to have got way more votes than most other articles but has not yet made it into the 'Top Rated'. I don't know why. Maybe that's refreshed every month, or maybe it's because there have been a couple of votes less than 5 stars and the others have only 5. In that case the only hope is to swamp the poorer votes with 5 stars - so keep them coming please.

Cropbiker, good luck with your photoshoot. If I was any closer I'd be there.
