Once again we were able to fly five rounds during the season of this now well established electric thermal competition. Besides flying at Cashmoor we were fortunate to be able to hold rounds at three other local club flying sites, Salisbury MFC, Tarrant Hinton and Marlborough MFC. Throughout the season a total of 16 pilots entered the Round Robin series, seven of whom were WMAC members. The contest consists of one flight against each entrant throughout the day and the number of individual wins determines the winner on the day.
Five rounds were held with the best four scores counting towards the overall placings. The flying order and scoring system are computer generated, thanks to Rick Churchill, a whizz kid with Microsoft Excell spreadsheets. This, together with a 12v 240v inverter and printer keeps track of the round robin scoring and produces a print out at the beginning of the competition for every flight of every round. It was universally approved by everyone and was instrumental in the smooth running of the competition, thanks Rick.
