Alert!

Guys,

The ALES League website is down, and Soaring Circuits too for that matter. I'll be contacting the host tonight to see what's going on. I can sign into my account and access the websites from there but external access doesn't seem to be getting through.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Randy

Well, as far as I know, that wraps up the ALES League for 2012. Does anyone know of any other contest scores that will be coming in?

This is a good time for those who have participated in the League to check over their scores to make sure that everything looks accurate. If there are any questions, drop an email to the me at the League address.

The trophies have been ordered and are due in by the end of the year. For 2012, they are sponsored by Soaring Circuits. Trophies will be awarded for 1st through 10th place so if you think you'll be getting one, please send in your mailing address so your trophy can be sent to you.

That's great! But personally I think that 87th place should also get an award.

WooHoo! Looks like I made it into the money by less than one point. Whats really cool is that I fly with 4 of the top ten guys.

Whats even cooler, though somewhat embarrassing for me, is that one of them flys an unmodified Radian and ended up in 4th place!!

Congrats to Randy for a well deserved kick butt 1st place and especially for all the work you put into this new sport.

Thanks Randy!!!!!

Scores Update

The October 5th Central Valley Radio Control scores have been posted.

Since it looks like scores are still coming in, here's what we're going to do. Any scores and any reports of inaccuracies must be submitted by 11:59:59 PM EST on December 31st, 2012. At 12:00:00 AM EST on January 1st, 2013, the 2012 ALES League scores will be frozen.

BTW, we now have over 300 pilots participating in the League for 2012. Also, we've polled the clubs that participated this past year to see if there was enough interest in continuing the ALES League in 2013 and the response was a resounding yes, so feel free to start sending your 2013 schedules in and we'll get them posted.

Update

Guys,

I'm away for the next week and I'm still getting scores in. Unfortunately, I won't be able to update the standings until I get back so there may still be some changes in the top 10. Sorry about the delay.

The good news is the trophies are in. I haven't seen them yet since they came in the day I left. I'll post a pic as soon as I can.

North Texas ALES for 2013

Guys we had great interest in the ALES format in 2012 with informal quarterly events. I'm pleased to announce that we'll fly at least 6 events in 2013 beginning in February and will go every other month, likely on Saturdays. We're picking CD's this week and will get details up on the club website soon.

Scores Update & Stuff

Ok guys, back home again. Sorry for the delay. The September 29th, October 12th and December 8th Arizona Electric Soaring Group scores have been posted.

That wraps up 2012. We ended up with 314 participants for the year. Remember to check the final standings and if you're in the top ten please email in your mailing address so we can send you your trophy. We should be picking the trophies up tomorrow. I'll post a pic when we get them.

Also, start sending in those 2013 contest dates so we can get them posted on the website.

2012 Results

As a wrap up for the season, here's the top 10 ALES League finishers for 2012. I've also attached a pic of one of the trophies.

I still need addresses for the guys with *'s by their names. Please email them in so I can get the trophies out. I'd like to mail them all at one time if possible.

Congrats to all the winners and thanks to everyone who participated. I think it was a pretty successful first year. Let's hope 2013 is even better!

Thanks,
Randy

Site Updates

I've started to redo the website for 2013. The Helena Flying Tigers, Polecat, Nats, and Charles River Radio Controllers contests have been added to the schedule.

I also updated the rules link to the new 2013 version. ALES is now an official AMA provisional event (AMA Event 631) and there have been some minor tweaks to the rules compared to 2012. Most notable is the addition of a runway style landing option.

Guys, regarding the 2012 top ten finishers, I have addresses for everyone except Gordon Buckland. If anyone knows Gordon, can you ping him and let him know I need his address?

Thanks,
Randy
