One month in... Auckland in the lead

It's about a month since we went live with XContest in New Zealand and we've had 17 XC flights logged... not bad considering the awful weather that we have been having.

The Club Competition is looking good, with Auckland currently well in the lead thanks to the only double-figures flight, a 31km flat triangle by Wayne Rohrs, from a new site he has pioneered on the Kaimais Range.
