The 5th annual Point Rat Series. A 5 month long elapsed time race to goal event based around the Northside of Point of the Mountain Flight Park. A total of 5 elapsed time tasks to be run on a monthly basis at anytime and as many times as you want.
A new elapsed time task each month (May, June, July, August & September) with prize categories based on paraglider aspect ratio. Classes must have at least 5 participants for prizes to be awarded.
Fun Class (glider A/R < 5.3) Recreation Class (glider A/R < 5.8) Sport Class (glider A/R < 6.4) X Class (glider A/R 6.4+)
How it is scored Via the internet, you upload your times for the current task (IGC track log from your GPS) to http://freeflightcomp.appspot.com/comps/pointratseries2016/. A 50 point task bonus will be awarded to pilots who fly the task of the month, during that month. Pilots may upload track logs flown for previous month's tasks at any time during the competition period ending September 3oth, but by doing so will forfeit the 50 point bonus for that month. The website scores your task each month based on your elapsed time and distance. Your track log must include your launch & landing from the flight park, but we will not score your track if you have not landed by sunset. All applicable FAA rules apply. After Task #5, we will drop your lowest score for final results. You must be a current club member to be scored. Task difficulty will slowly increase with each task.
