За вікном дощ, чомусь це дуже кльово. Голова гуде, а дощ, здається, трохи допоможе. Вся ніч без сну - у Кам'янці сьогодні рекордно зустрічали сонце.
Назустріч сонцю 2012
Зараз його немає (дощ же), але о 5-25, як і обіцяли метео-сайти, воно показало через сіру хустку з ранкового туману свою рожеву, рум'яну щічку.
Назустріч сонцю 2012

Observers Needed!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I remind everyone that the deadline for filing applications for participation in Championship of Russia 2012 draws to a close, and those who have not yet decided on participation, please hurry.

I would like to strongly emphasize to all the following. This championship
can play a crucial role in the observer movement in Russia. During last years we noticed a trend to replace observers with loggers, which is certainly easier and cheaper for the organizers. Currently, the number of filings is only a half of the required number, and the management is already talking about that, if not before May 9 will be formed a complete list of suitably qualified Observers, it will raise the issue of changing the competition format, ie refusal of the observers. Clearly, if this happens, the next year with great probability all competitions in Russia will go on without Observers.
I therefore appeal to all feel the seriousness of the situation and try to support our movement
and come to Velikie Luki. If anyone has friends or acquaintances who are interested in aeronautics and willing to try as an Observer, and, in your opinion, capable of rapid learning, invite them.
I hope for understanding and support.
