Contest
2015 cams/polecat ales open soar

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls

Once again it's time to announce the contest for 2015. Registration will open December 17th (yes, that's tomorrow)
Registration opens in December for each contest by request of those who have to plan their vacation time by January 1st.
All the usual stuff, Friday practice day, Piggy roasts, lunch's on Saturday and Sunday, donuts, coffee, etc. etc.
Full details will be given in tomorrows post along with the possibility of aan informal F5J contest Friday afternoon if their is interest.
Keep your little eyes and ears open as the contest filled up in about 24 hours last year:-)
Contest is Fathers Day weekend, I will double check but I believe it's June 17, 18 and 19. All those who registered last year through the online registration system should recieve an e-mail in the morning.
JT, unless I missed it we don't have a proper name for the Piggy!

And the pig: Hortense. No reason, just sounds right.

Pretty close. It seems that you were looking at the 2016 calendar (you are always ahead of us). For 2015 should be Friday 19, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21st.

All the best,

Luis

Negative ghost rider. You will need an altitude limiter that will show the highest altitude achieved from motor start to 10 seconds after motor cutoff. This needs to be readable upon landing. The pilot decides how long to run the motor or how high to launch. For each meter of altitude gain you lose 1/2 point. Then above 200m you even more points per second, I can't recall but perhaps like 5 points per meter.
I also believe F5J does not allow motor restarts either!

An Alti4 is a great device that will do F5J.
