My F1A Fly off at the Szabo Miklos memorial competition
The organizer decided to fly with a 10 minutes max, the round is scheduled from 20.20 to 20.30.
I start at the beginning of the round, there is a big thermal and wind, I do the 10 minutes, my model is at 2 km and behind the river. As my model is far away, I go and see the organizer and ask when was going to be the next fly-off, my spare model is ready to fly.
The organizer answered that it was too late to make another fly-off and that the contest was finished and the first place would be shared between all the people who made the 10 minutes.
I packed my spare model and left to retrieve my model, it is 20.40
What a surprise when I come back, it is 21.15 , I hear that a second fly-off has been made by 7 competitors (we were 11 to have done the 10 minutes). They decided (Who ?) to do a vote with some competitors, those who flew at the end of the 10 minutes fly-off round : the wind had turned and decreased. I think the organizer was greatly influenced by one competitor. During the vote, one competitor did not want the new fly-off (there were approximately 6 ?)
I asked explanations to the organizer who simply said : « excuse me ».
I think that the second fly-off is not valid, the rule is not enforced : no starting position, no information, decision taken after having said that the contest was finished.
I was very angry, what does the jury do ? Where is the fair play ?
I fly Free Flight since a long time, it is a way to forget the life problems with joy, tears, victories, disappointments. This Sunday that was not the Free Flight spirit !!!! For me it is not possible to write a name on the Szabo Miklos trophy.
