With one club launch left in the season, our contest flying efforts are bearing fruit. A quick summary of where the club's flyers stand from the National Scoreboard.

1/4A SD. B division, David L is in 4th place. In C division, Stephen M is in 14th and Mike L in 20th.

1/2A RG. C division Stephen M in 10th

A PD. B division Greg L will be in 3rd when results are confirmed. C division Rick H is in 21st, but C division results will change when results from later events are confirmed. Later results will put Stephen M and Rick H in at 12th-14th place and Guy W at 22nd.

A HD. C division Stephen M at 14th when results are confirmed.

B Alt. C division Rick H at 11th, Mike L will be at 13th/14th when results of a later launch are confirmed.

As a section, CMASS is at 14th place.

Among the national championship rankings, high points on the board are 47. Rick H has 32, Stephen M,  24 and Ed P-G, 20. Note that to qualify for this all events must be flown so each of us has some gaps to fill to qualify.

Come on out and give competition flying a try. For the basic events like SD, PD and Alt just about any bird will give you a qualified flight. And yet, as the launches of the past several months have also shown, getting qualified flights consistently is a challenge.

Good flying.

Thanks for the updates. So now it looks like I'll have to do more NRC building over the winter, along with the rest of my pile.
I'm a little burnt out on building. All summer long I've been bringing at least two new rockets to every launch. This Saturday I'm thinking I might just fly a few of my favorites, burn up a few packs of engines and call it a season. But I'll have the rockets I've been using for NRC in any case.
I had a new B Altitude design to try, but I test flew it on an A8-3 this past Sunday and it showed a distinctive wobble. So I won't be flying that one.
This has been an interesting challenge. I think it's a great way to develop one's overall rocketry skills. But seeing as how this is our last launch of the season coming up, I just want to drill a few holes in the sky.
Thanks to all for a great season.
