MIXED CONTEST - FSS #2, May 3rd & 4th, 2014, at Kennyworld, Ocala, Florida


Alert: Please see the CD's announcement in post #13.

FSS Unlimited Thermal Duration Soaring Contest #2 will be held on May 3rd and 4th, 2014, at Kennyworld, west of Ocala, Florida. The contest will be open winch. Our contest director will be Jamie Mercado.

Saturday, the pilot's meeting will be held at 9:45 and the contest will begin at 10:00. Sunday, the pilot's meeting will be held at 8:45 and the contest will begin at 9:00. The number of rounds flown each day will be determined by the contest director.

Pilots will be classified as Masters, Experts, and Novices. (Please see the FSS website for details about the new classification system and award schedule, and for a list of pilot's assigned classifications based on last year's contest results.)

On both days the beginning task time will be announced at the pilot's meeting and task times may change after each round. Other rules may be discussed later in this thread or announced at the pilot's meeting.

Kennyworld is located at 17150 SE 60th St, Morriston, FL 32668 on the south side of the road.



The flying site, which is the home of the One Wing Low Squadron, is provided by Kenny Goodwin. The contest will be run by the Pompano Hill Flyers with launch equipment provided by The Orlando Buzzards.

The nearest hotels are at Exit 354 of Interstate 75. The contest site is a 20 mile drive from there. Other nearby hotels are at Exit 350 (Route 200, SW College Road) and Exit 352 (Route 40, West Silver Springs Blvd.) Our favorite is the Red Roof Inn, but you may find a much better deal at the Super 8 across the street.

Please monitor this thread for changes or additions.

As CD for this event I'll be allowing ALES flying along with winched launched sailplanes. Altitude limiter set to 150 meters and 30 seconds, time starts when the plane leaves the hand. The scoring for landing will be the same for both, 100 point tape, landing skegs allowed.

Sounds good to me.
I'm trying to make the contest, at best a 50/50 shot due to the significant others travel plans to Ca.
