sorry once again for the pb with the results, we have managed with this competition to show our spreadsheet has errors when doing more than 20 rounds. Thanks for all the friends who typed them back on various sites and spreadsheets to double/triple check.
full results accessible there:
today, “only” 6 more rounds flown.
several plane crashes unfortunately.
We had to cancel round 7 (ie: round 18 of the competition) after a dozen of pilots as the clouds suddenly arrived, wind turned north and 3 planes had to land down the mountain. Some damage to them.
A little shower came a few minutes later, so stopping the day was the best choice.
tomorrow should be sunny and south wind again, more flights to come.
A long and sunny day this friday!
11 rounds flown in 8-13m/s wind, with 30 pilots.
best runs in 33sec.
temporary ranking is as below:
ok, after some last minutes changes here is the ‘as of July 16th’ pilot list:
this year, 32 pilots will participate the event.
weather forecast is changing still, with websites projecting sun, some other risks of little rain in the end of the days.
Wind will be from south, so clearly it should be more than the websites will project (thermal grows the actual wind).
We will start putting all the equipement up on thursday, I guess there will be plenty of pilots already there.
Once again, meeting at 9 AM on friday morning for registration until 10AM. Goal will be to launch ASAP the competition as the weather conditions get sufficient. We don’t know exactly what the weather will be all weekend, so better not loose a chance of doing one round.
Yes, after a bad start last night (wrong form, sorry for keeping you awake), the registration is well opened.
I know that already 20 pilots registered during the night, and will thank them for resending their registration through the GoogleForms that now is running here:
…. the date is coming close ….
Prepare to register for the upcoming event!
opening date: April 1st at midnight
event date: 17-19 July 2015.
more to come…….
and the competition is over…..
another 4 rounds flown, so a total of 14 rounds for this edition.
many thanks to everyone (pilots, judges, course directors, sponsors). I will make a full report ASAP but first of all, here are all the results:
F3F_TendeFAI2014 – Full Results
Meeting at 9AM with little north wind but forecast was south so we were already at the south slope with the breakfast for every pilot and organizers.
2 rounds flown, one third that could not be validated due to to many reflies and eventually no more wind.
