RDT FO not PC or worse ?
From: Pierre CHAUSSEBOURG
About DT fly-off: Of course, I fully agree with John O'Donell, but I want also to add something about that.
At the moment, these DT Fly-off are completely illegal. We have rules in the sporting code, about World cup contests: Vol F1 Annex 1, rule 4.c) "In the event of a tie for any placing, the competitors with that placing will share the points which would have been awarded to the places covered had the tie been resolved (round up the score to the nearest whole number of points).
We must go by these rules, and they don't mention about any agreement between competitors for DT Fly-off or what ever.
All contests results mentioning these kind of fly-off in the Jury reports, should be rewritten, sharing the points of ties, and the general classification of World cup modified as necessary.
Anybody classified in the World cup may make an official protest to the World cup Jury, about that.
California FAI Invitational
From : Juan Livotto
Dear Aero-modelers and friends, this is to advise you that I'm not longer will be hosting the California FAI Invitational Contest; Zella and I decided that 40 consecutive years is long enough and decided this is the end for the CA FAI Invitational.
In all those years we had met lots of good people and we made lots of friends, we hope you had enjoyed yourself as much as we did.
I would like to recover the perpetual trophies towards the end of the year so I can keep them in a especial place in my house as a memory of your achievements.
Juan and Zella Livotto
