They obviously weren't.

7/10 for concept, 2/10 for execution, and 10/10 for entertainment.

The one guy seemed so exact about where everybody's plane had to be.
I blame him

Two made it to altitude. It was that one bonehead in the middle of the pack who blew it, probably piloted by the same genious telling everyone what to do.

He was a large cause of the fiasco that followed. Note that all the sailplanes did not crash. Perhaps four of them did, a fine showing for such a terrible tow job.
