Follies produces tie at top of Stunt heap,
along with Vintage Stunt Champion

The Fall Follies in Salem on Oct. 6-7 included a very closely fought battle in Expert Precision Aerobatics, with Chris Cox edging out Paul Walker by 1.5 points -- just enough to bring Cox into a tie with Walker at the top of the Precision Aerobatics and Overall Stunt categories for the 2018 season. With no more Stunt contests on the schedule, that appears to be how the standings will finish for the year.

Dave Royer signals to judges as he begins his winning Old-Time Stunt flight at the Fall Follies, solidifying his victory in the Don McClave Vintage Stunt Championship Trophy race for 2018. Flying Lines photo.

The Follies also settled the race for the Don McClave Vintage Stunt Trophy, with Dave Royer of Portland, Ore., claiming the title for the second time. The Vintage Stunt Trophy is awarded to the flier with the most points in combined Old-Time and Classic Stunt for the season. Dave also won the title in 2015. Dave flew his Humongous in Old-Time Stunt and his Warrior in Classic. Previous winners have been Bruce Hunt (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010), Scott Riese (2005), Pat Johnston (2007) and Pete Peterson (2011, 2013), Alan Resinger and John Thompson (2012, tie), John Thompson (2014) and Dave Royer (2015), and Mike Haverly (2016, 2017). The trophy is sponsored by Flying Lines.

The Follies also tightened up the Northwest Sport Race and Overall Racing battles, with one contest still to go.

Next contest on the schedule that will count for points is the Portland Northwest Sport Race contest on Nov. 24.

The Northwest standings system

Flying Lines keeps track of standings in all AMA rulebook and Northwest official events, in all Northwest sanctioned contests.

Your FL editors do their best to keep up with the results, but contest directors can help keep the standings up to date by making sure to send the results to FL immediately after the contest. If you spot errors, please let us know.

Results must include the placing in each event through fourth place and the report also must list the number of contestants in the event, in order for the point standings to be counted accurately.

Also, please include in your report the hometown of the contestants. Only Northwest residents are counted in the standings (AMA Dist. XI and British Columbia). The score of each contestant also should be listed for general reporting purposes and for checking against the Northwest records.

If you flew in a contest that doesn't appear to be counted, contact the contest director or Flying Lines.

How the points are compiled:

Who is eligible to score points: Any resident of AMA District XI or British Columbia. AMA Dist. XI includes Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
What events are counted: Official AMA rulebook events, official Northwest rules events (see Northwest Rules for a list) and official special interest group events such as PAMPA's Classic Stunt and Old-Time Stunt or NASS Sport Jet Speed.
What contests count in the standings: All contests taking place within Dist. XI or British Columbia, sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics or MAAC.
How the points are awarded: Points are awarded to the top four placers in any event. First place is worth the number of entries in the event; second place is number of entries minus 1; third place is number of entries minus 2; fourth place is number of entries minus 3. Example: If there are 12 entries, first place gets 12 points, second place 11, third place 10, fourth place 9.
Overall standings:
In events with multiple classes, an overall points tally also is kept. In Speed and Scale, all classes are combined.
Special notes: Precision Aerobatics expert fliers' scores are multiplied by a factor of 1.5. When an individual is allowed more than one entry in a single event, only the highest-placing score shall be counted. Events run by nonstandard rules, including record-ratio events, will be counted only in the overall standings for the category.

Send contest results, corrections and other correspondence regarding Northwest Competition Standings to Standings Coordinator John Thompson. For a printed copy of complete current standings for any event, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, to Flying Lines, 2456 Quince St., Eugene, OR 97404. For a PDF copy of the complete current standings for any event, e-mail the standings coordinator. To see rules of all Northwest regional events, go to the Flying Lines Northwest Rules section.
