I've looked around the web site but haven't seen anything one way or the other. Just wondering how the vote turned out.

Now that the Toledo show is over, and the LSF officers have had an opportunity to formally meet, what is the status of the proposed ESAP? Has it been officially ratified, is there a timeline for when it may be opened for participation, where do thing now stand?

I like the concept of the ESAP.

When is the form for ESAP, like the SAP, going to be published on the the LSF site?

From another thread ...

The Electric Soaring Accomplishments Program is now open for participation. To enroll, use the LSF Application document found under the LSF Program tab at the top of the LSF web site. ESAP particpants who were not previously LSF members will receive an LSF member number upon completing Level I of the ESAP. ESAP participants who are already LSF members by virtue of attaining Level I in the SAP will retain their LSF number. For purposes of voting, the highest Level achieved in either the SAP or the ESAP will determine the member's status for a vote.

I did not ask the right questions

What is the motor run requirements fort he ALES?

When are the final rules for ALES going to be published?

I know the committee gives up their private time though there is quite some positive interest in this new "SAP"

6. Mechanical or chemical modification of the

Forgive my ignorance, but if ALES was provisional, wouldn't it say provisional in the rules?

Also looking at the NATs application form ALES is not marked provisional.

I think it is an official event now.
