Summary:                                                                                                                       

· You are invited to Kent Interclub Glider 3 Multi-launch competition to be held 18 July 2020, CD on the day is Bob Hope (GliderScore Ian Nicholls). This is an open competition and non-Kent Interclub club members are very welcome (entry fee £5).

 · We want to have a full day's flying so please check in 09:30 latest and be ready for Pilots Briefing at 09:45 with the competition starting at 10:00 sharp.

 · To enter, please click on Reply to this topic no later than 6pm Friday 16 July with model class, and frequency if not 2.4 (Glider, Electric, Open, 100" etc) so a matrix can be set up.   

· A final decision to confirm or cancel depending on the weather will be posted here by 6pm Friday 16 July. (Please note that entrants need to check here and will not be emailed about cancellation.)

 Location:

 · Tonbridge club field is at Leigh Park Farm. The postcode is TN11 8PN.

 Additional Info:

 · The rules are a variant of BARCS Multi-launch but, for Electric launch gliders, the variant is slightly different from last year. As before, Electric launch gliders must be fitted with an AMRT (height limiter) which cuts the motor at 30 secs and records the launch height. Electric launch height remains at 175m but there will now be a penalty of 3 pts per metre for Electric launches exceeding it. Most pilots will want to set AMRTs to cut a little below 175m. It is fine instead to use F5J firmware and cut the motor manually.

 · A minimum of 4 rounds and a maximum of 6 rounds will be flown Disciplines:

· Glider, Electric, Open, 100"

Results (before I finish my beer having just arrived home) Report to follow but Bob Ryan score was corrected from those available at presentation.

Congratulations to the worthy winner Greg Hayfield flying his winch launched Stork in near calm conditions

2nd Graham Wicks 3rd Colin Paddon

Alan Harris flying his very old balsa 130 inch Eliminator with spoilers/pop up airbrakes had the highest landing scores.

More later but please add your own comments as I'm sure Mike Connell  will add some photos.

Great very hot day finished by voting consent after 5 rounds due to near heat exhaustion by some.
