SHPF Nationals Series 2015 - Task and Scoring Guidance (draft for comment)

Draft guidelines for scoring Scottish Nationals series events.

Aims

Scoring options

Typically SHPF Nationals tasks are of the 2 types, depending on the weather on the given weekend:

XC flights

Tasks will be set on the day, depending on the likely met conditions. Each dayís task is scored at 1000 points max. The tasks are scored based on the open distance or distance to goal. For open distance, the pilot with longest flight (distance from take-off to landing or goal) gets 1000 points; all the remaining pilots are scored based on their distance, as a proportion of the 1000 points, e.g.:

Distance from start to finish will be based on:

Ridge soaring flights

Tasks will be set on the day, depending on the likely met conditions. Ridge runs with a number of turnpoints (e.g. end of the ridge, special features of the ridge, next hill) will be specified with a set number of points for each turnpoint. Depending on the day, the maximum score for the task should be set between 500 and 1000 points. Rules on how to score a turnpoint should be set on the day as they may be specific to the site (e.g. whether to fly over it or just in front / windward side of it).

Other rules

Each round of SHPF Nationals should have a task setter who is nominated by the hosting club, but who need not be a member of the hosting club. The SHPF nationals series coordinator will have the final say on scoring and validation of flights/distances.
