2013 Windsor Scale Aerobatics

Well, it seems Windsor had the only real good weather in the area yesterday, although driving through fog and drizzle to get there sure wasn’t promising. Skies sunny, wind zip, temperatures “OH MY”!  Spoiler alert - if the thermometer in the shelter is reading 35 deg, you can bet the “Johnny on the Spot” will be considerably hotter.....don’t linger!!

Fuelled with copious quantities of Timmies coffee, The Cool man kept the flight line humming, and we managed 4 rounds of Sportsman and Intermediate. Basic had only one participant, Dayle Smith, and after 2 rounds and  lunch he decided to sit the rest of the day out.

Overall, there were 11 pilots flying in the 2013 Windsor Scale Aerobatics contest. They were: Alan Coolen, Ben Lann, Brandon Smith, Chris Garrett, all the way down from New Brunswick, Dayle Smith, Grant Beaver, Kelly Dorry, Mike Notley, Paul Sinnis, Sandy McInnis and Todd Fowler. We flew a grand total of 240 judged sequences.

Ben Lann, with a very nice electric, won the Sportsman class. There were 4 pilots in Sportsman. The winning order was: (1) Ben Lann, (2) Brandon Smith, (3) Todd Fowler and (4) Chris Garrett. They flew 8 known sequences (4 rounds). The scores ranged from a low of 4,789.6 to a high of 6,000 (a range of 1,210.4 points).

Kelly Doary won the Intermediate class. There were 6 pilots in Intermediate. The winning order was: (1) Kelly Dorry, (2) Alan Coolen, (3) Paul Sinnis, (4) Grant Beaver, (5) Mike Notley and (6) Sandy McInnis. They flew 8 known sequences (4 rounds). The scores ranged from a low of 2,336.1 to a high of 6,000 (a range of 3,663.9 points).

The tightest competition was for 3rd place in the Intermediate class, with only 155.7 points difference between Paul Sinnis and Grant Beaver.
                                         
Tim Horton’s of Windsor very kindly provided an urn of coffee at the start of the day (thanks Everett for picking that up), Generosity like that is always appreciated, and the coffee was very welcome first thing in the morning when it was a bit chilly, and a bit damp, at the field. It also generated  much of Al’s enthusiasm, ( 7 cups? 8? 9?) keeping the rest of us going all day.The Avon club hosted the lunch, and burgers and sausages were plentiful (thanks guys).

Personal thanks go to Kathy Garrett for helping out with the data entry. Without her help the results would have been somewhat later being printed.

Sorry to have missed it but I had work to do. Sandy, my math must be off, how do you come up with 240 judged sequences? B-4, S-32, I-48 = (84?)

Don't think your arithmetic is off, but you have to talk to the designer of  the Score program Dan... I just print the report, then edit it to personalize it a bit, then post it. Suppose it's possible that when you clear an older contest (Truro) the individual flight scores get swept but the total flight tally stays.... who knows. And since I haven't programmed since the good ol' COBOL days, doubt if i could figure it out  Smiley
