Another regional TD man-on-man contest

In February the CASL (Phoenix) club did their first-ever man-on-man TD contest with 8 winches. It was a great success. Now a club in Western PA is doing a TD man-on-man contest. SBSS in the SF Bay Area has been doing their monthlies for awhile using a modified MoM format. Start of a trend?

SVSS has a wide enough field to do 4-5 lanes to the N and even more to the S. So how about the SVSS Soaring Challenge 2016 as the time we consider a man-on-man format?

I like the contests at SBSS as with doing the MOM format they get in 4 rounds now instead of the 3. Plus with the 2 groups they have Timers are ready plus every one doing the same tasks at the same time. No one waiting for the better air.

I also was able to spend a day in Denver with Skip Miller and see how they run their contest
They put out 4 winches all 4 launch one after the other if one has a line brake they all return to relight it goes real fast as they had about 16 guys and did 9 rounds by 1pm.
