Rebooted in 2019: Make sure to submit your flights!
Each year solo pilots can represent their college in the college gliding competition by completing a Varsity style flight, and submitting their GPS trace to the committee. Colleges can enter as many pilots as they wish and pilots can submit as many flights as they wish, but only the highest scoring flight from each college is taken. The pilot who achieves the highest scoring flight will win the Slazenger trophy.
The full rules are outlined on the Varsity page. It is a 50 minute flight where the aim is to get the highest cumulative height gain. Be careful not to go over 50 minutes as there is a heavy penalty for exceeding time!
