Flying Competition, changes and opportunities!
This Sunday looks favorable wind wise, so if any members wish to participate in the competition for the David Wright Cup, we will try and get a few more flights in. Those of you that have already flown one flight, Its a chance to better your scores! The committee discussed the scoring system last week, and it was agreed that due to the small amount of suitable days we have had to fly, and the fairly short time left before the A.G.M. that we will now take the scores from the best two flights out of a maximum of three, rather than three flights total. The competition details are posted below.
Let's see some support from everyone, this is a beautiful cup, and a great gift from david wright to the Club.

1. All flights to be fixed wing. (No helicopters/quads)
2. Competitor to perform a 5 min flight max to encompass 4 basic moves, i.e. take off/hand launch, figure of eight level, box circuit level, & simulated dead stick landing.
3. 2 judges spaced around the field will award points (no conferring) and record on the form the competitors name, date and points awarded.10 points max for each of the 4 basic moves. Each form to be placed in a separate envelope and sealed, the competitors name written on the front of the envelope.
4. Each competitor to have a maximum of three flights, with the score total taken from the two highest scoring flights.If a competitor only makes two flights, then the total from both those flights will be used.
5. Judges can be anyone who understands the 4 basic moves, & picked at random by the committee or members, but not by the competitor.
Judges can judge any number of competitors.
6. 3 main competition days, or each contestant to have up to 3 different attempts, but not all on the same day.
7. All flights to take place between Jan 1st and Oct 1st.
8. 2 committee members plus one other, (committee member or not) to collate points and hold in secret for announcement at the A.G.M. where the cup will be awarded to the competitor with the most points.
9. The winner will keep the cup from the A.G.M. to 2 weeks before the next A.G.M.
10. In the event of a tie, the winner will hold the cup for an equal amount of months each.
11. The cup remains the property of the M.G.M.F.C.
