Having competed in a couple of ALES contests , so far, I'd say eliminate the "dork' landings by having the clock run until the plane stops moving. That's the way we do it here and it encourages smooth, flat landing approaches and negates any skegs or bolts. Also, 200 meters is about right for max motor run. With a 10 minute soaring window and the usual variable conditions, making your 10 minutes from 200 meters is not a guaranteed thing and is not done the majority of the time, at least not around here.
