I’m just a regular sportsman too
I am replying to Frederic’s comment in SEN2364 about the Bern flyoff that “nobody including Ian Kaynes” has made a protest.
When I am at an event in an official CIAM position I will do everything I can to make sure the event is run as well as possible.
When I am a competitor I am very careful about contact with the organisers during the event for two reasons.
1)There is the potential for conflict of interest when I would be open to criticism that I was arranging the contest to suit myself.
2) It could be very time consuming when I want to be busy in the cycle of retrieving, charging batteries, and flying.
That is not to say that organisers do not ask for my opinions. On Saturday afternoon I was asked about the idea of a six minute max for the last round. I agreed it was a sensible option given the good weather and the shortage of daylight time. But that was without any mention of it only being 6 minutes for the full scores and 4 minutes for the others. That was as much a surprise to me as to anyone else. I didn’t protest because it didn’t affect me. The jury are there to handle protests from anyone who was affected and did protest.
