Albuquerque Scoring Complete

Nov 29, 2005

Congratulations to the winners of the Albuquerque competition! The results have been verified by George Hawkins and the spreadsheet is included here.  This was the last competition of the year and an impressive showing of very capable pilots. 

A total of 9 competitors came to see how they compared  (11 actually, but 2 were unable to start). Thanks to Mike Thompson and CC Moissant for running things and keeping it fair.

Anyone planning their own competition can download the USPPA scoring system using the blank Excel scoresheet. This can be useful for “gaming” various scenarios to better know where your efforts should be concentrated.

Harryport Competition Completes

July 10, 2005

The flight-friendly farm of Harry Rosset enjoyed its first USPPA sanctioned competition with enough pilots to make it count towards national standings. The grass and beans made for a perfect location to set up the cloverleaf and a large round grass circle worked well for all the other tasks.

New pilot Rick Morris showed enormous promise. With only 65 flights, he showed up expertly doing various maneuvers demanding skill. Since we were looking for more competitors, he was a natural. Another up and comer, Tim Kaiser, who has competed several times now but only has 110 flights, nailed two of the spot landings – a high scoring accomplishment that netted him 2nd place. 

This event was worth a total of 500 points towards the national standings. Our next competition is in Albuquerque during the 2005 Balloon Fiesta Fly-In. 

Congrats to the competitors who braved the heat and bumps. As always, great fun, sore muscles and much flying (in short spurts!) was accomplished. Interestingly, and as usual, there was no damage until free-flying ensued AFTER the competition.

Scores from this July Harryport event are below: 

Pilot Points Towards National
1. Jeff Goin       2,170                  500
2. Tim Kaiser       1,285                  296
3. Mike Cannella       1,233                  284
4. Rich Morris          959                  221
5. Steve Tustison          300                   69

Thanks to Harry Rosset who’s property we used and for being the Lead Judge, Also Jay Reynolds, Nick Cannella, Paul Paulikas, and Alex Varv for helping with judging.
