Billings Flying Mustangs Contest
WOW! What a great contest. Run very smoothly, weather was perfect, flying site is awesome and finding lift was work! The competition was stiff too!

Scroll down just a bit and the Excel scores spreadsheet may be downloaded.
There were 10 contestants, six folks from Helena made the 3hr 15 minute drive, one from Bozeman and three from Billings. There were some folks from Billings and the Columbus area spectating so hopefully they'll get some ALES ships soon!
Here is a screenshot of the contest results. ALES is a great soaring competition, easy to setup and run, but we all know that. In some thermal duration contests it becomes a landing contest and I wanted to see what it looked like if the landings were taken out and just the flight times were used so you can see that comparison as well.
Thanks to all the Billings folks for a well run competition!
Thanks to Randy from Columbus for keeping score!
