2020 FAI FF AmCup

The 2020 FAI FF AmCup season is complete.  The last contest of the year, AZ Champs, resulted in only one fifth place change. Please congratulate our first place winners:

F1A       Mike McKeever
F1B       Blake Jensen
F1C       Faust Parker
F1P       Bob Hanford
F1G       Tiffaney O’Dell
F1H       Jim Parker
F1J        Faust Parker
F1Q       Ben Tarcher
F1E       Jack Greening
F1S        Jack Murphy

As I stated in my previous report, 28 of the originally scheduled 34 contest were flown albeit the entry numbers were down after the start of our shared Covid-19 experience. All the winners fulfilled the three different contest site rule.

At this time, there are no plans for an award banquet during the 2021 Fab Feb Contest at Lost Hills.  I will endeavor to have the award certificates (first through fifth) and the first place keeper trophy at Fab Feb and have an award presentation on the field, day and time TBD. I will coordinate getting the perpetual trophies to the winners. Five of the winners have the trophy from their 2019 win so that reduces my effort.

Over the last several years, SCAT has discussed revamping the AmCup score system to move from the original “encourage travel to other flying sites” to a more “performance award” system but we are putting this off another year to see if the lower contest attendance due to Covid-19 stays the norm or it returns to prior levels. We will plan to continue AmCup in 2021 with the same contests we started with in 2020. Please contact me should any club wish to drop from the AmCup calendar or wish to be added.

My thanks to the clubs and CDs that run the contests and especially now with the added burden of maintaining health safety guide lines as well.

Bill Hannan RIP
This is very hard for me but I would like to let everyone know that Bill Hannan passed away last night. He is known around the world for his expertise in the world of free flight scale models. His designs, drawings and books are the best around. He was a very kind individual who would answer any question and help anyone with a problem.
God bless you Bill Hannan!

The 2020 FAI Arizona FF Championships

The last America’s Cup contest of 2020, the FAI AZ Champs, was held on December 5 and 6 at Eloy, Arizona.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused the number of contestants to be much smaller. Pre-entries by mail had been requested, which helped with getting the registration and fee payments out of the way. The flyers held on to their time cards and recorded their flight times as they were told by their timekeeper. At times the CD then asked the flyers on the field for their flight times to get them recorded. Everybody tried to keep their distance and used a face mask when getting in closer contact.

The weather was perfect with cloudless blue skies on both days. The temperature in the mornings was 43°F (6°C) but then warmed up to about 75°F (24°C) both days. The wind was 0mph to 7mph (3m/s). Early in the morning we had wind and then again in the afternoon for the F1S fly-offs. But in rounds 3-5 it was mostly calm with slight puffs of air in all directions caused by small thermals, this made it especially difficult for the glider flyers.
Only in F1A, F1G and F1S did we have 3 or more participants. In F1A Jim Farmer was the only one to max-out and in F1G it was Peter Brocks. In F1S there were 5 clean after 5 rounds. It took 3 fly-off flights with the reduced 5 second motor run where George Morris came out ahead to win. Congratulations to our Junior Skylar Donnelly who flew very well in F1B and F1S.

Peter Brocks, CD
