Will there be fly-offs and if so, will regulation round totals carry over or is this TBD?

I feel your pain Jason. I'll be driving back from the Midwest Slope Challenge that weekend. Otherwise I would sign up for the event.

Hi guys,

Looks like an exciting event coming up. Since a question came up earlier I wanted to clarify the min. # of qualifying rounds in terms of both FAI F5J and F5J USA Tour rules. The answer is 4 rounds, minimum. Any pilot who flies fewer than 4 qualifying rounds cannot have their scores submitted as Tour scores. (references: FAI (a) and Tour Qualifying Events rule 9 ).

Fly-offs are at the option of the CD as long as it is announced before the contest starts.

Thanks and have a great contest!
