2)      Starting on October through to March.

3)      Should the day be considered suitable the task may be increased by adding an additional turning point. The additional turning point will confirmed by GCWA by 10:15 a.m. If no telephone call then the standard task will be assumed.

5)      Should the pilot wish to fly with water there will be an additional handicap of 5%.

6)      The pilot has the choice as to fly wet or dry, but is deemed to be flying wet if he LAUNCHES wet.

7)      The scoring will be based around the state speed task scoring, with a cut off point of 500 points, should the pilot get round. (This is to encourage novice pilots who will score substantially for the very act of flying.)

8)      There will be two competitions run, the individual competition where the best 4 flights are scored over the season and cumulated.

9)      The team score will be run in the following manner. The scores for the day will be cumulated for the day and the leading team will score 5 points, second 4 points and third 3 points.

10)  The points will be cumulated over the season to give the winner. (The reason for this is to keep the competition close throughout the season. It hopefully will also encourage a club to at least send one pilot out, in so doing so will gain suitable points.)
