After a brutal week of work. That contest took the grumpy off my face. Thanks for putting it on. Very interesting weather conditions. Never seen rain without clouds. Fun fun fun!

Had fun today. Maybe as it cools down we can throw in a micro-intermission and have some dawgs.
Thanks to Iain for co-CDing and helping to enter scores, Ed for placing landing tapes, Randy for pulling them, and to everyone who kicked in setting up the MASH unit. Prescott is next weekend, followed by Elliot Bowl F3K in 2-weeks.
Scott - do you want to use the east field?

My thanks to Lee and Ian for putting on the show. To John A. for sharing the bug spray (I was never bothered), thanks as well. I love that east field! It was nice to have an actual parking area.

Sorry if this is off topic. Could someone who is familiar post up the scoring software you all use for the F5J and the ALES contests, please? Also post up the limiters folks use for those two contests. I'm assuming the Altis is the only the F5J option commonly available. Is that becoming the standard for your ALES contests as well?
Thanks in advance,

All but one pilot is using the Altis v4 for F5J. For ALES there are pilots still using the CAM unit, but the Altis is capable of both F5J and ALES using the altitude cutoff feature. Also pickup the Altis keyboard for on-field programming so you don't have to bring a laptop.
CAM (ALES only):
ALES and F5J scoring is simple enough where you can just code Excel sheets and build MP3 playlists using available round and flight window sound files. There's also pre-built man-on-man scoresheets for ALES/F5J use. You can also use GliderScore which will score ALES/TD/F5J.

Thanks to Ian for being today's ALES CD; to Lee for continuously silencing Vicky and announcing the correct group names, and John "the falcon harasser" Armstrong for grilling up a great lunch! Awesome time guys.

Go ahead and use the other thread for signing up for the F5J event, and we'll keep this thread clean for ALES.
BTW - there will be another small change for future ALES events. We will normalize flight duration scores AND THEN add the landing points. It's actually in the ALES rules this way, but you must override the GliderScore default to score normalization first.
For this event we added flight duration scores and landing points, and then normalized results. The change is usually subtle, but can make a difference.
In the overall results posted below, when normalization before landing points were applied it actually increased the separation, but only moved one pilot from 5th to 4th.

Oct 25th ALES Contest in Prescott Valley
PVSF will be hosting an ALES contest on Oct 25th
Location: Our flying site on the Football field at Bradshaw Mountain High School East Campus (our normal site). Visit pvsilentflyers.com if you need directions.
I checked with the school admin a few minutes ago and confirmed that the football field will be available to us.
Pilots meeting at 10 am, first flight 5 minutes after the end of the pilots meeting.
Entry fee $5
Dan will have Hot Dogs and Sodas as usual, $2 for 2 hot dogs and a soda.
Set your CAM units for a 150 meter launch.
We will try to fly 7 rounds, time and weather permitting. 1 dropped round if we fly 6 or more rounds.
All pilots, regardless of skill level, are invited to come fly with us.
Please reply to this thread to let me know who is coming, so I can get the scoring program set up in advance as much as possible. Last minute walk-ons will be accommodated, but if as many of you as possible can let me know in advance, it helps reduce the confusion factor just prior to the contest.
Any questions, post here.
