Scoring using National rules for handicap for each aircraft
No water ballast , no pre weighing required.
Teams scored as reverse finish order eg : last in team plus second last and third last scores make up total for the day for that team.
This encourages the slowest team member to improve XC performance to lift scores.
Team flying encouraged - this is a regatta to encourage XC - not a competition !
Easter eggs to be day prizes. Really big Easter egg for overall team "winner" and novelty trophies as determined by the committee.
Dont forget your serviceable parachute and serviceable hand held radio for tow outs on the airfield.
