  I will be CDing the 8/13 F5J lite contest and Norm will be CDing ALES on 08/14 at Twin Towers park. It will be $20 for 1 day and $30 for both And that includes lunch and Pladalions. Pilots meeting will be at 8:30am on both days to take advantage of the cooler temps with flying to start right after the meeting. Here are the basic rules we will be going by.
F5J
- If you use an ALES CAM unit your height will be your launch hight plus 10%
- No varios
- 10 second launch window
- Flying over the 10 minute window will result in a zero landing.
- Throw out after 5 rounds
- Landing more than 75m from your tapes pin will be a zero flight

ALES
- varios Okay
- 10 second launch window
- 150m launch
- Landing more than 75m from your tapes pin will be a zero flight

   Let the weather watching begin,

To be clear, in F5J lite as you describe with a 10 second launch window, if you hold back in launch you give up maximum time to stay in the 10 minute window and get landing points,
I’ll do whatever the CD wants and say thank you, but does it make sense to not enforce the 10 minute flight window if you’re going to have a 10 second launch window?
Just asking…..

Planning on flying both days.  No unscheduled tree landings or mid-airs.

You're 10 minute window starts when you plane leaves your hand. You have to be on the ground before the stopwatch Hits 10 so 9:59 good 10 bad.

Understand, so it’s an individual 10 minute window, not a Glider Score called out 10 minute fixed window for the group.  Works for me….
