Looks like weather should be acceptable so we might actually get to fly again!

Where are the rest of the entries? @Monz @Paul Gleeson @CTR @Simon B @carlosds @Gavin_st @Neil Harrisonetc...

@mikef - not sure what the CD plans for this round are, but I'm happy to help out with guiding others through electronic scoring with Gliderscore if that's the route we're going down... Or anything else I can do to assist.

I currently have 5 and a maybe entries.  Do I spend a day at Buckminster to run a non-league event (8 minimum) for 5/6 people?

We're missing two who responded positively in the other thread - @Martin O, @Paul Gleeson Obviously circumstances may have changed but it would be great if you could confirm.

Otherwise - @Monz, @Simon B, @carlosds, @Marin Mitev, @Nick, @PaSky, @Crasher any of you contemplating joining us? Not wishing to be too pushy especially as everyone may have their own Covid19 related risk/situation to consider but just want to make sure nobody is missing out due to not realising its happening!

Here's the task list for the August 15th (or 16th) Buckminster contest.

Please note, A few things have changed In the rules for this year....

Poker only has three nominations allowed.

The new 'one flight' task, task L, has a single launch allowed the max score is 9:59.  (Do you go on the hooter or wait until you think you can fly the slot out??)

The flight time shall be recorded to 0.1 seconds. Rounding up is not applied.  (All contest flights)

Before each working time, there must be a preparation time period of 60 seconds when flying is not allowed.
 
After all the model gliders of the previous group have landed, the competitors flying in the next group receive 45 seconds of flight testing time, which is part of the preparation time.

The dropped score is applied after 12 rounds. (Was 5)

 

The timing files for the PA don't include as much detail as the rules at the moment.  I'll do my best to announce the details.

That does sound like a reasonable excuse!

Hope you manage to sort it all out...
