RE: SEN 2116 – View from afar

From: Terry Kerger

Roger

I think you F1B guys need less performance and a RC DT or 7 rounds to weed out the squeakers. Max Men results show 39 out of a possible 53 or 73% of the sportsmen made all 5 maxes and qualified for the fly off. Only 8 dropped one round. The remaining 6 need more practice.

Re the controversy, don’t pick on the flyer, pick on the timekeeper. Timing for a 8 minute max is not easy, we have to give the benefit of the doubt to the flyer. Cut the guys some slack.

Contest Meta-Scoring – suggested proposal for Am Cup

Is there a better (?) way to score multiple contests than the American Cup? Consider a new FAI meta-contest scoring system:

A: Max outs

1. A flier who fully maxes out (FullMO) (7 rounds with an optional 4 minute max or 5 rounds with two 4 minute maxes) get 25 points.

2. A flier who maxes out a truncated max out (TruncMO) (at least 5 rounds with a minimum max of 2:30) get 20 points. (Note that 900 in five rounds would qualify, but not 899.)

3. A flier who maxes out a mini event (MiniMO) (five rounds with a 2-minute max) gets 20 points.

B: Bonus points:

1. With a single flyoff if flown, the top five flyoff fliers would get bonus points, based on the number they beat plus one. So, if three flew, the winner would get 3 bonus points, the second 2 etc. A flyoff flier who does not post time gets no bonus points.

2. If more flyoffs take place, or the first flyoff has a 10-minute max, the top seven flyoff fliers would get bonus points based on the number they beat plus one with the same proviso for those who did not fly. So if there were six flyoff fliers the winner would get 6 bonus points.

3. Bonus points are added to the ‘base’, 25 points of a FullMO; to 20 at a TruncFO or a MMO.

C: The highest non-maxedout flier gets 5 points less than a maxout, the next flier 10 points less and so on, provided they make five flights.

D: The rest of the fliers get 1 point per contest, if they fly at least three flights as a token of recognition.

E: The two best scores at a venue count. Only American Cup contests quality. No awards are offered,

Example 1: FullMO with two flyoffs: Flyoff fliers, 25+7, … ,25+1, …, 25 (the other flyoff fliers), 20, 15, 10 and 5 (non-flyoff fliers) and ones for the rest.

Example 2: TruncMO with a single flyoff: Flyoff fliers 20+3, 20+2 20+1, 20 (other flyoff fliers), 15, 10 and 5 (non-flyoff fliers) and ones for the rest.

Example 3: A mini event with flyoffs: Flyoff fliers 20+2, 20+1, 15 (3 maxed out, two flew), 15, 10 and 5 (non-flyoff fliers) and ones for the rest.

Example 4: Contest without a PMO or MMO. 15 points to the highest ranked flier, 10 points to the next flier etc.

Example S: Solo flier, FullMO 25 points; Solo flier, TruncFO 20 points; Solo flier, just five flights 15 points.

In summary, this system reflects the difficulty contest flying. Flyoffs and excellence performance are rewarded and all those who participate are recognized. Solo fliers have to fly well to receive 25 or 20 points. As many fliers are likely to accumulate 50 points at a main venue, positioning them in contention for the top ranks.

To illustrate, the following is a list of American fliers that would have accumulated at least 50 points plus the bonus points at the Kiwi (SEN 2018), Pan Am (SEN 2022) and Maxmen (SEN 2116):

Ghio and Andriukov (+13), me (+10), Schrodter (+9), Filex (+7), Mathews (+6), Jones (+4), Jenson and Morrell (+3), Crowley (+2), Achterberg and Richardson (+0).

The meta-scoring system will be applied this year to F1B and F1Q from the beginning of the year as a test of concept. Please send e-contest results to aram.schlosberg2

Note that this a proposal from Aram , not the America’s Cup team . His scoring will not affect the runnning of the Americas Cup this year
