Announcing the 2011 Mt. Magazine Air Races
Mt. Magazine Air Races Current Standings
MT MAGAZINE AIR RACE
This Race competition is geared more toward the experienced XC pilot. Others can join in but the learning curve will be steeper. We are looking at this as fun training for pilots that think they might want to do some of the bigger national comps. If you can do it here, you can do it there. Event is open to H4. H3, P4, P3 pilots. Open for Rigid, Flex, and Para, all going for top 3 positions to be awarded at the end of the soaring season.
You are required to use a GPS or a GPS equipped Vario with track log capabilities and the means to send your flight track logs to be scored. All the tasks are timed events using fixed routes with several turnpoints. The Scoring software will divvy out points based on the time to complete the task, the number of pilots and how many made goal. We will take each pilot's best flight during the year for a Task, group them together and run them through the software where their flight will be scored for points. Maximum of 1000 points for the top finisher of each Task, with less points going to the rest of the field. We will do that for all the Tasks and then total up each pilots points to see where everyone places. Awards to the top finishers at years end, based on Registration Donations.
Send your tracklogs to firstname.lastname@example.org. When you send your first tracklog for scoring, send your name, sex, the type of glider you fly and CIVL ID number if you have one.
Tracklogs should be in the .kml or .gpx formats. FsComp requires .kml files to score a flight but I can convert .gpx to .kml if I have to. Download GpsDump for free and use it to upload and download your tracklogs and waypoints from the GPS or Vario and convert it to the .kml file before sending it to be scored.
BE SURE to save your tracklogs on your computer in case there are problems with the file sent or it is not received. Keep it as a backup.
